Azul is undoubtedly one of the best board games for 2 players. Players take turns drafting colored tiles to their player board.

Drafting games with just 2 players. I really enjoy the drafting mechanic, but playing mostly with just 2 people means I rarely get to play with it. 1 in maybe 3 or 4 reviews for 7 Wonders says not to bother if you've only got 2 players, and I've heard similar things about Sushi Go.
We played Azul3 in the hot games room at BGG Con. Kudos to the convention organizers for having a large, well lit room with tons of game topper tables and multiple copies of the hottest games. It was almost too good there, though, as the room was crowded for most of the day (and a little stuffy).

The goal is to build the best and most efficient space station. Among The Stars, game mechanics work very well and its card drafting mechanic is flawless. The game is quick to learn and easy.
I love high-conflict games, and I felt this one masterfully handled the elements I love most in other games (my faves): area control (Wallenstein, Twilight Struggle, Quantum, Cyclades), diplomacy (Rex, El Grande, A Game of Thrones), card drafting (7 Wonders, Seasons, Sushi Go!

Castle Panic is perhaps the most accessible example of this game mechanic in the top 2000 of BGG games. In Castle Panic, the players are cooperating to defend a castle under attack from a variety of fantasy monsters (the game has been reskinned for Star Trek as well).
