Question Simple two player games ?

Hello everybody, I'm back Was a while away from the forum.

I'd like to find some easy to play two player games to play with people who aren't familiar with videogames like my girlfriend and most of my friends. I cannot understand how they find Rampart too difficult

My girlfriend learned to play Dynablaster but I get bored of it easily, it feels too simple and restricted for me.

In my youth I spent most of my time in solitude and what little time I spent with friends they knew how to play and wanted to play games like Dogs of War etc which my girlfriend hates because theyre "too violent" and she dislikes racing games too and I also have became quite fond of today's 3D accelerated racing games. The only old racing game I play nowadays is Stunts (aka 3D Sports Racing) ...on a PC with the exception of occasional sessions with Stunt Car Racer Amiga version that rocks. I just wish somebody would make a remake of it with better graphics and more fps.

btw. I spent half an hour trying to teach my girlfriend to take off in Dogfight but she never got the hang of it

So can you fellows recommend me some easy to play fun two player games that my simple friends might be able to play ? Some not too violent and not racing games. Something simple and fun to play with friends when having a beer or two (or in this case, several )

Viper was also quite fun for being a shareware game. It's a snake-clone where you can move in any direction.

supercars II i would say. Very addictive...just can get mad if you get unluck with other cars picking on you

oh, also i liked a little game called atoms. Kinda a strat game where you place atoms on a grid and try to explode them causing the other players ones to go off and you try to aim to get all the atoms on the board to change to your colour.

This one I know too but we have a problem: in the battle mode with the cannon, horses and soldiers the player who uses the joystick is unable to switch between those three thingies. Seems like only one button in the joystick works and only the player who uses keyboard, has a button for the switch... Any suggestions ? I'm currently using the latest WinUAE and a 4 button USB gamepad as a joystick (wish I still had a real miggy and tac 2 here )

But anyway thanks for all the answers, got a lot of games to try out.

ps. should have read it all... yeah, it is just a bit violent game, but there is no blood!
