Ok I have been playing this game solo. I've only owned for a year and never had time to play it...shame on me. This is a fantastic game. It offers a lot of strategy and planning.

But was wondering if there is a two player variant that has been attempted. I saw a post back in 08 or 09 about a variant but was never commented on.

I'll take any ideas...I have a few myself but if someone has already played a two player game then why invent the wheel.

Thanks

Seems like this would be difficult to make it fun. Really important parts of the game seem like they would not work so well unless you have at least three players:

- Auction to get the provinces...with two people there would not be much of an auction

- The sacrifice...doesn't seem like that would scale well to two players

I played a 2 player match of Homesteaders around 3 months ago. This game has an clever auction mechanism for 2 players. When we can transfer this mechanism to Amun Re, this could be the solution? On first sight, the bidding mechanic seems to be similar. But before I had to read the rules of Homesteaders....
