Editor's Notes

December 11, 2018:

Ensuring each game was fun and exciting for a minimum of two players took priority in the rankings, so you'll find an assortment of diversions specifically designed for a couple, and some that are just great to play with two people, but can accommodate more if desired. Beyond that, it was mostly a matter of including selections that would appeal to a variety of personality types.

4. Gloom 2nd Edition

5. Monopoly Deal

6. Five Crowns

7. Exploding Kittens

8. Codenames: Duet

9. Set Enterprise's Quiddler
