I introduced a colleague to Pandemic. He liked it and asked if I could recommend a similar game that:
- Plays well with two people, and
- Will be a bit more approachable for his partner, who's new to games (and might find Pandemic a bit fidgety or overwhelming to learn).
The first thing that came to mind is Forbidden Island (which I own and like) or Forbidden Desert (which I've been been hearing great things about).
Before I recommend it though, I've never played either with just two players. Does does (one or both) hold up well with two players?
