Hi,

Has anyone ever tried playing Thebes with five or six people? Friends are visiting and I thought this would be a good gateway game to play with them. I know I would have to make extra player markers and excavation permissions, but do you think that the gameplay would be okay?

Thanks!

I had the same idea, the extra excavation markers would be easy to do.

Had considered having 5 or 6 of the cards out to choose instead of 4.

Haven't had the chance to try it yet, but I think it'll work.

Yes, that's a Japanese CTR ring shield cut in half...

I have played with 5 and we had a good time.
No major problem since there are 5 digging sights, just be sure to get to one of them first!

Thanks for the replies! I plan on trying this out tomorrow.

One more question for you guys: Do you think I should shorten the game length down to something like 1.75 or 1.5 years for 5 players? Did you do anything like that Ninjabob?

Anybody ever give it a shot with 6? Thoughts? Rules needing adjustment?
