To the emailer who asked about board games for couples, I recommend Lost Cities (also available for iOS) and Quarto. Both are played in minutes, are easy to learn, and have a respectable amount of depth.

Also, Ready Player One sucks. It's terrible prose whose only purpose is to serve as 80s nostalgia. A much better game-themed piece of fiction is Lucky Wander Boy.

There are a lot of stories like this. As they said on the podcast, Ready Player One is just one of the more popular in more recent memory.

I'd also recommend Bonnanza and Ticket to Ride as good starter board/card games for two players.

Can you even play Bohnanza with two players? I thought 3 players was the minimum for most games that use trading as a central mechanic?

Bohnanza has a interesting 2 player variant that my wife and I have enjoyed over the years. In fact, it's just about the only way I've played the game. For multiplayer Bohnanza, we play Space Beans.

Spacetime and Broforce both sounded pretty interesting!

Put Broforce on the Steam wishlist for the next sale.

Hopefully I can remember that I'm interested in Spacetime when that becomes available!
