February 04, 2021

Finding yourself in a constant Netflix-after-dinner Groundhog day scenario? Spice up your nightly ritual with some friendly competition.

Here are some of our Bandit couples' favorite games built for two.

1

Ganz Shon Clever

Like a better, more strategic version of yahtzee and less than 30 minute playtime.

2

Battleship

If you haven’t heard of this classic, what rock are you living under?

3

Exploding Kittens

Okay, it’s a card game. BUT it’s a kitten russian roulette for all you pet lovers who love corny jokes + strategy.

4

Ticket to Ride

Competitive? Then hop on this train that will take you all around the US if you play your cards right. But this one is actually a board game so we don’t totally lose our board game street cred.

5

Chess

Brush up on those logic skillz, you two.

6

Innovation

Are you + your partner type 3 ennegrams? Well, achievers - we’ve found the perfect game for you. Time travel back to the stone age and enjoy.

7

Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle

Already read the books multiple times through and need an intermission break between the movies? Enter HPHB - your escapism tool into the world of witches, wizards, and the dark arts.

8

Pandemic

If this isn’t too close to home, it’s a must-play - hurry, the fate of 2020 is in your hands.

9

Parcheesi

Remember the game Trouble? This is the old school version and a lot less noisy - classic board game favorite.

10

Reckoners

Any puzzle fans out there? Well, imagine a puzzle board game for your enjoyment with a sci-fi twist. This 75 minute playtime is well worth it for some good, competitive fun.
