I don't know what the record for attendance on a game night is (15? 20?) but I do know the record low attendance: 1 (myself). I only stayed because I had to open for decorators.

Early in the group's history there was a night with two people: Mike and myself.

This week the initial attendance count was good (7). But then people started cancelling. First Travis and Amy (hectic schedule), then Mandi (illness - Mr. Mandi had to come and open the doors). Mike and I didn't found out till later but Will and Nancy Lyn also cancelled (we waited until almost 7). So another night with Mike and I.

2 or 20 you are welcome to our events. we most weeks and have a game day most months (tomorrow!). Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

I brought this game partially in case Travis and Will wanted to finish the flood cancelled game.

Mike was eager to learn, so we tried this with two. The differences are we each got two goal cards, and the neutral citizens are placed before player citizens.

Mike rocked event cards (if one of the goals was event cards he would have won by a longshot). Turns out it was close:

After we found out that Louise did not need a ride we had time for another game. We considered Vinhos but decided that might not be good with two. Mike had played CoB before, but needed some refreshing.

I took an early lead, bit in the last phase Mike finished a lot of areas (and got some bonus tokens). Both of us realized too late that we could not finish out pastures. If I rolled a "1" in the final roll I would have won.
