Steve Jackson's Ogre looks to be a two player game! BUT, some other LONG games i own that we could try on a week-end (all day) are:
Descent: Journeys In The Dark (FIRST EDITION) (2 - 5 players)
Gears Of War (1 - 4 players )
Starcraft: The Board Game (2 - 6 players)
World Of Warcraft: The Board Game (2, 4, or 6 players)
...i have NOT played the above games before (with the exception of Warcraft), so we'd have to pre-learn the rules before we try any of these. Warcraft, as i remember it was a team game that involved a LOT of math...

Co-host's (AvrAm) note: To smooth out the bringing of stuff, let's engage in the comments section, so we can prep what to bring. IN THE COMMENTS; name two long-playing (3-12 hours) games you would want to play.

These also look great:
War of the Ring (1st Ed, 2004) - ?
Descent (2nd ed) - Joe
Twilight Imperium - Mike
Game of Thrones: The Board Game (2nd Ed, 2011) - Mox
Battlestar Galactica (2008) - Mox
Mage Knight Board Game (2011) - ?
Power Grid (2004) - Mox, Sean
Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization (2006)
Sid Meier's Civilization: The Boardgame (2002) - Nick
History of the World (1991) - Tim
Axis & Allies (1981) - Av
Kingmaker (1974) - Av

    I own Twilight Imperium. It might sound ridiculous, but there's only a slim chance we could actually complete a game. I've seen games of this take over 20 hours easily. My friends hate the game now because of that, haha. It's actually quite fun, but wanted to throw that warning out there.

    I don't know if I can make it yet, but Arkham Horror isn't on the list yet and that's a classic.

    Some games I have that haven't been mean ruined: empire builder, advanced civilization, shogun, merchants of venus. Let me know if you want me to bring one. I'm walking, so I won't be bringing all of them. :)

      I thought perhaps that someone played them so ruthlessly, the games were ruined for you!

    I'm free either Saturday or Sunday for a long morning session. I'd love to try Descent or Battlestar Galactica, and I'd go for some Axis & Allies as well. Something with a handful of people.
