Looks like it would be ideal for 2, as even 4 player games are played as teams of 2. The action cards are not used to directly harm other players, but just change the state of the board (and cannot be used to directly undo what the last player has done either). Would be interested in seeing how it plays and hearing your thoughts on it!

From the publisher description:
Arthur and Mordred: rival leaders of a fledgling nation, each slain by the other’s hand. Britain is leaderless, fractured and vulnerable. For the good of the country, a leader must unite the Scots, Welsh and Romano-British; not by conquest but by diplomacy.

Whether a loyal knight, a scheming lord, or an ambitious noblewoman, you have one thing in common: power. As prospective leaders, each player will use their power to benefit the factions, gaining influence among their ranks. The player with the greatest influence over the most powerful faction will be crowned the new ruler of Britain.

If a region is not under the clear control of one faction, the area is vulnerable to invasion by the Saxons. If four regions fall to the Saxons, the search for a new ruler ends immediately, and the player who has done the most to unite the factions is declared the leader of the resistance.
