I don’t know about you, but my husband and I love to play board games together. It’s a fun way to spend a date night in, plus we have fun being competitive and playfully fighting. We usually play them when the weather is colder and we’re stuck inside a lot.
If you and your partner – or anyone in your life, really – are board game enthusiasts as well, then you’re in luck! Because today I thought I’d share the 10 best “clean” board games that are fun for two people.
This game is not really competitive since you have to work as a team, which can be lots of fun! You both are specialists working together and trying to cure the world of plagues.
Caverna is kind of a Sims-slash-FarmVille-ish game, which I love. You have a cave family and you have to improve your cave, work your farm, grow your family, and mine for rubies.
Okay, so this one is a classic that we all know. But my husband and I love it! You probably already know how to play, but there are so many different versions you can get and I think that’s pretty awesome. From The Walking Dead to Disney to Bob’s Burgers and more.
Hive is a strategy game involving bugs. In this game, your objective is to surround your opponent’s queen bee piece, while at the same time keeping your queen bee from being surrounded. It’s pretty fun!
You work as a team in this game as well. It’s technically not a “board” game since it’s made up of tiles, but oh well. 😉 You basically have to work with your partner to collect the four treasures of the Forbidden Island before the island sinks.
Carcassonne can get competitive – but it’s all in good fun, of course! The objective of this game is to build and claim land, which is simple. But by the end of the game, when there’s less land to claim, things can get more complicated and competitive.
Another classic that I love. Need I say more?
Ticket to Ride is more relaxed than these other games, but it’s still fun too. You have to build a railway connecting two cities before the person you’re playing with gets theirs completed. Which sounds more simple than it is!
This is for you, my fellow mystery fans! It’s one of my top favorites. In this game, you help Sherlock Holmes solve cases. You start at 221B and travel through London, picking up clues along the way. And there are tons of cases to solve, too!
I’m a word-nerd so I love Bananagrams. It’s pretty much a more exciting version of Scrabble. You’re basically in a race against your partner to build crosswords.
