Hi Experts,

I have been into gaming for years and my other half is interested but hates games after a short while because she is convinced that she is not good at them. We had great fun the other night though playing "battleships" against each other on Yahoo. What I am looking for is recommendations for 2 player fun games that I can play against her and what sites to go to. Recommendations of either online java based 2 player games or installable LAN based games are most welcome but it has to be fairly simple and colourful. Eventually I will get her into the better stuff like Age of Empires 3 etc!!

Many thanks,

Kevin

if you have separate hotmail accounts and have Windows Live Messenger installed (and 2 PC's online) you play a variety of games together
