Abstract and Two Player Only Games

Sometimes you don't need a theme, a back story or anything else, sometimes you just need the Game. Some of these games don't seem to fit in anywhere else but here. That doesn't mean they aren't as much fun as any other game, in fact some are more fun and lots are very 'thinky' games that will require you to knuckle down and concentrate on matters in hand.

Also in this section are games that just work for two, when it's just you and one other you don't need to miss out on any gaming action, or play slightly different rules. The games here are designed for that time and it's all head to head.
