I've been looking at Xia for awhile now and I absolutely love the game concept and mechanics I've been seeing. The only thing that's keeping me from buying it is that it's usually just myself and my wife playing games together, and Xia requires 3-5 players. Is this a game that's possible to play 2 player or is it like Cosmic Encounter where you absolutely have to have a minimum of 3 players?

Totally playable with 2p. You'll just have less interaction than with 3p+. I recommend playing with house rules that get the NPC ships out quicker when playing 2p.

The only major problem with 2 player is that if one player gears up a combat ship and just keeps attacking it can be very hard for the other player to recover.

There are 2 player rules posted in the rulebook for the expansion; the big difference is that you count the NPCs as possible targets for missions that would normally target PC ships.

You can play Xia with 2 just fine.

It's a great 2 player game.

It plays just fine at 2 players and with the rules that will be coming out with the expansion it solos pretty well too. I actually am moving on from firefly as we like Xia better, even at 2p
