1) Caesar & Cleopatra
Classic 2-player game from the 1990s.
Caesar & Cleopatra Caesar & Cleopatra Jones
2) Honor Of The Samurai
Honus Wagner (SS) played 17 seasons for the Pittsburgh Pirates a hundred years ago. His baseball card, maybe the most valuable of all time, was recalled in 1909 because it was distributed along with tobacco; Wagner objected because he did not want to set a bad example for children (fact taken from 'Honor Of The Samurai' is a multi-player card game which has nothing to do with baseball.

5) Puerto Rico
Currently the world's #1 rated table game. These Christmas Elves replace the slav... er, 'colonists', which are little dark brown disk people in the actual game. There is some controversy over these 'colonists'. How much Whiter can you get than these Christmas Colonists?

6) China
The 2 player expansion for this area control board game is called Das Duell. 'Das Duell' became 'Das Bull', as in a China ship, go figure.
China (Das Duell: 2 player version) China Das Bull
7) Enemy In Sight
Redux of this classic 1980s Avalon Hill card game. An 'emory board' is used to file fingernails.

8) Hera & Zeus
Another 2-player-only card game; has some kinship to the classic Stratego and The Challenge. She-Ra is from the 'He-Man' cartoons (1990s?). I don't know much about these cartoons, but I believe She-Ra is He-Man's consort.
Hera & Zeus She-Ra & Zeus
9) The Princes Of Florence
Currently one of the top 10 regarded board games in the world, now with one of the world's most highly regarded sitcom moms!

One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction.
