  1. I like your list. I love that you have a couple games that are specific to couples and then other more general games that couples can play. Another great one I would suggest is 7 Wonders Duel. You guys should check it out if you are looking for a really good 2 player game. Thank you for the article.

  2. I love these ideas! We enjoy playing Battleship, but haven’t seen the electronic version. Will definitely be looking into that!!!
