I know, there are three weeks left until Spiel starts in Essen, and maybe this question comes too early, but can anyone tell me how Packet Row plays with 2 players?

Despite the simple rules it might be interesting with 4 gamers, because the main thing in the game is to guess what the harbor master will do and when the round might be over. I don't know if it is any good with 2 players.

I've played the game with two players today. We had a lot fun! :-)
And yes, there were some tough decisions to be made. When you're the harbour master you'll try to take the best cards available, but it's much harder, since you don't want you opponent to have the first choice at a location.

So, I say yes... this game works very good with two players!

I was the second player in the game with Jeroen and I agree. I must say I was pleasantly surprised.

As Jeroen mentioned it has some interesting choices when determining where you want to purchase your goods.

Besides that you try and buy as efficiently as possible. You want to fulfill more than one contract per ship, but sometimes you need to fulfill a contract sooner than you'd have liked because you need the cash.

Can't wait to play this again.

So it seems Packet Row is worth to be picked up in Essen. Thanks for the replies.

I agree it plays well with 2 players. It is a nice quick game but with some nice decisions to make. My wife and I really enjoyed playing it.
