Two-person computer games?

I'm looking for two-person computer games for Mac whose main emphasis is on strategy / thinking / puzzle-solving, not fighting or socialising.

My husband and I are looking for computer games that we can play together (i.e., on two separate laptops but in the same room). I'm really not into games where a main focus is on fighting like Warcraft or first-person shooters; I'm not morally opposed by it, just bored. In an ideal world the game would be something that is thinky and engaging. No MMOs (we want it to just be the two of us and not have to bother with meeting up with or coordinating with other people). It's proving surprisingly difficult to find games that meet all of our criteria - either that, or we really don't know where to look.
So, to sum up, the criteria are:
1. Two-player (i.e., two controllers on two laptops in the same room) but not MMO
2. The emphasis is on strategy / puzzle-solving rather than hitting buttons quickly.
3. Must be available for the mac
The three options we have identified so far are SimCity, Age of Empires, or Civilization, but we're not perfectly satisfied with any of these. Any other suggestions?
