Date Night 2-Player Game Ideas

Does anyone else find it really difficult to keep track of fun 2-player games to play? As we were sitting in the hospital room, both recovering from our own surgeries, my husband and I decided we needed to find fun ways to pass the time. Along with our own personal favorites (like sequence and Bananagrams), I surveyed my Instagram crew to help me find the best 2-player games we could, and I figured I would share them in an awesome list here!

Most of these games are great to play while camping, traveling, or you know, sitting in a hospital room for 6 weeks. I have broken them down into categories to help give insight into the materials needed. If they are card games, like BlackJack or Gin Rummy, I linked the rules on each game's name. Travel games are awesome because they are easy to take anywhere in a backpack or suitcase!
