Cosmopolitan published an article in September 2019 with their best two person board games for date night. Some of their choices were fine in my book while others were downright odd. That being said, I have some opinions about the games they chose and offer some alternatives in some cases as well as some additional games to check out for you and your partner to play on date night, or with a friend, or one of your children.
Many multi-player board and card games out there may play fantastic for three, four or more players, but when scaled down to two, they may not work very well or may even play differently with a separate case of rules to accommodate the lower player count. Therefore, I did my best to choose those that are solid two player games.
