I'm looking for ideas for board games for 2 people. Seems like a lot of games are played with 4 or more players. Any ideas? This would be adults, or teens not small kids.

Checkers, Chess are a couple that come to mind also. Battleship, Rummikub aren't board games but 2 people can play them.

We play scrabble - the cooking or gardening version. Each has a fun twist.

We also play Rack-o.

Yahtzee, Jenga, Monopoly, Chinese Checkers, Connect Four, Farkle(it is a dice game you can buy)

HEADS UP! It requires you to purchase an app for your iphone or ipad but it is fun! It was created by Ellen DeGeneres and was the best selling paid App last year.

You may want to give this site a look. Seems there are quite a few 2 player games available.

I enjoy Mexican Train also and my grown children always get up a game when they are visiting. I always lose, but it is still fun.

Yes you can google it. I'm on my phone so limited as far as posting links.
