This game works well in two players? It remains valid? Thank you.

My wife and I play it with 2 players and enjoy it. I suggest you watch Rahdo's run through or at least listen to his final thoughts on the game with a 2 player count.

To me what makes Lancaster so good is lost in a two-player game. The amount of interaction is often reduced to the same as so many other worker placement games as the need to push out others of that area you really need isn't as important as you can just get it next round and get something else this one. It's also harder to win wars in France and stopping a leading player. The tension of the voting phase is also highly reduced. This is a game that gets better the more players are involved.

*echoes Morten* I found it to be enjoyable with 2 players, but no longer great.

Unfortunately I do not know very well the English language, so the video can not figure out the final considerations. You could summarize it for me? Would you do me a favor. Thank you.

Don't focus too much on his review part. He says so himself. Basically, Rahdo is a very positive person and all his final thoughts are full of positives so it's hard to judge much from it.

2 player game is just okay, I would play 2 player again. But 4 player is best and 3 player is not good in my opinion as there are too many open spaces to chose from on the map.

I've played it 2p once and while it's ok, I wouldn't recommend it if 2p was your main focus. I find it better with 4 and 5.
