Board Game Sanctuary Presents
Two Player Abstract Board Games
I love a good two player board game especially if you just want to spend a quiet night playing with a best mate or your significant other. Two player games often have a fast turn structure, tight and tense game play moments as well as an opportunity for some very deep strategic decision making.
This video aims to look at some of my favourite two player abstract games that can be seen as ‘lighter’ or ‘alternatives’ to chess. Games like Hive, Santorini and Onitama may look deceptively simple, but the gameplay and actions that players can take throughout a game can almost match the high tension and suspense level of a game of chess.
The Board Game Sanctuary is a family friendly board game channel that aims to introduce the board gaming hobby to new and seasoned players in a light, fun and humourous way.
