This year at GenCon I will be demoing games for Fantasy Flight Games, which is sort of my not-so-sneaky way of getting to play with and check out several of the FFG games they have to offer this year.
Top of the list is The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game. A major draw of this game is it is designed for two-player right out of the box. Actually, that is a primary consideration of any game that I purchase: I don’t just play games on game days or at conventions or with large groups. When the wife and I want to play a game, we need something that will work for two players. I have too many games that require at least three players, so games with two player options are first in line for my wallet. (A note for attendees at GenCon — pick up Android at the FFG booth. It plays great with two players.)
