We have therefore once looked at which games were conceived particularly for 2 persons or at least make also in small round tidy fun.

Table of contents – Games for 2

Targi – Sons of the desert

The name of the game goes back to the desert people of the Berbers and is the name for a male Tuareg. This is exactly the role you play in the game, trading various goods such as dates, salt and pepper. In this exciting strategy game, you have to keep track of the various resources and develop a good sense of timing. Through the skillful use of cards you can gain advantages and eventually collect victory points.

Once you have been bitten by the Targi bug, you can’t go wrong with the Extension* and the additional element "water" bring some more variety into the game.

The pair factor: The rules are quickly understood and offer little "room for interpretation" and thus little potential for conflict. There are also no particularly aggressive cards, so that nothing should stand in the way of a harmonious evening for couples.

7 Wonders – Duel

The duel variant of the popular game 7 Wonders Is based on the original game*, but has been optimized for two-player play, making it even faster and more tactical. As a player, you develop your civilization over different ages, constructing buildings and wonders of the world along the way. In parallel, you build your armies and can advance scientific discoveries. However, one must not only pursue one’s own goals, but also keep an eye on what the opponent needs at the moment and where one might be able to put obstacles in his way.

With 20-30 minutes the single rounds are played quickly, but due to the high "replay factor" it rarely stays with only one round. And with Pantheon* a first expansion has been released, which still adds the "divine factor".

Pair factor: In contrast to Targi, conflicts are inevitable here, but that can also have its charm ..
