King of Games
TTS is great, although there are definitely some games that it is just not made for. I'd love to play a game of Innovation with someone during the pandemic, but trying to splay cards sounds like a nightmare.

There's a free Innovation implementation on boardgamearena.com. I've played it a few dozen times, it works quite well.TTS is great, although there are definitely some games that it is just not made for.

Some other two-player games I recommend looking into:A friend lent us Patchwork since I was lamenting the lack of 2-player games and he said he and his wife have been playing it a lot during the pandemic, I liked it! Quick and requires some planning out your moves, a very nice weekday night game. Also it's only for 2 players, it feels nice to have something that's optimized for two rather than adapted for two.
Also one of the reviews is titled "An economic knife-fight hidden under a cosy quilt" so that's legit.
