There are endless exciting video game releases for all types of consoles, equipment and platforms, with a multitude of technical and narrative advances. Which means that we have a wide catalog at our fingertips with which to entertain ourselves for hundreds of hours, either playing alone or cooperatively and competitively.
But no matter how many advances the industry makes and the more options we have within our reach, board games not only don’t go out of style but are living a golden age. Mainly motivated by the times we have had to live in, where we spend more time than ever at home. But also because among them we find authentic gems that continue to amuse us so many years after their launch.
Board games based on video games: which is better to buy? Tips and recommendations
Most table games on the market require a minimum number of players that is too high for certain situations, such as when there are only two of us. Although fortunately there are more and more games adapted to two players or created specifically to be enjoyed as a couple, so if we find ourselves in this situation we have a good catalog to choose from.
So if we are thinking of expanding our toy library with these board games, or we need new alternatives to spend time as a couple (especially now that Valentine’s Day is approaching) or with friends and family, then We review some of the most interesting titles for two players on the market. With options for all kinds of tastes and budgets. Let’s go there!
Board games for two: recommended options
One of the board games specifically designed for two players, Fungi is also one of the most fun. At a price of 9.45 euros we can get this game in which we will have to collect mushrooms. It has excellent ratings, an estimated duration of between 20 and 40 minutes and, yes, it is not in Spanish. In any case, the language is not a barrier in Fungi and once we learn to play with a tutorial this will not be a major problem.

With excellent ratings, a price of 11.99 euros and adapted for two players from its original version, we have Saboteur: The Challenge.
