Liz here.

I have been quarantined with Dad--and his awful puns--for weeks now, but one thing we still enjoy doing together is playing board games. I guess I hadn't been paying attention to how many of the games I enjoyed playing required three or more people, but we have dusted off a few that only take two.

I am planning to make a special display when we do open the vintage toyshop--maybe next week! But here's a sneak peek of a few of the games that can be easily played with two players:

If you feel you've had enough words, maybe a tile placement game? 

Here's a hint, if you're going to play Patchwork, the last person who used a needle goes first, so... Dad gets a little miffed at this rule, but since I've been making masks, well...

And here are a couple more of our favorites...

Codenames Duet is cooperative, so you're both working together to beat the game, which adds a different element to it.

    Glad you and your dad are enjoying some well played games.
