There’s no question that 7 Wonders is a game that gets a lot of play around our table. It requires strategy, card drafting, and a lot of strategy not only focusing on your own hand but what the other people around the table are doing. And sometimes no one is sure who is really ahead until the last points are tallied up. So when I heard there was a 2-person version I was dubious.
But fortunately Phil was ready to jump right in and see if it held up to one of the all-time favorite games of those of us who are a part of Assorted Meeples.
Which brings us to this week’s Table for Two as Phil breaks out 7 Wonders Duel with his lovely wife Heather as they explore how this game plays in this role.

About 7 Wonders Duel
7 Wonders Duel is an adaptation of a great game into a phenomial 2 player game. The basic play is the same: Take a card; build it, sell it, or make it wonderful. They changed the military to a tug-o-war and science is now an arms race, both of which will end the game. This game is very intuitive after a few playthroughs with straight forward rules that have been streamlined.
This is a game that delivers on its promise.
What Phil & Heather Think
Heather’s not quite won over yet, but it is growing on her in a way many other card drafting games have not. This is a good game that is easy to learn but still contains quite a bit of strategy during these 2-player games.
Adapting 7 Wonders into a 2-Player game was really going to be a huge challenge. But they did a great job of it. The basic play feels the same as the full version, but adapted to a good 2-player system that fans of the original game will enjoy quite a bit.Phil’s a fan.
A really interesting two player game.
