How does this play with 2 players? And, is this another one of those KS games that sounds excellent on paper but ends up being a bit lackluster? Seems every KS game I purchase just misses the mark somehow, like it's half baked or something.

Thanks in advance!

Just asked this same question with a member of my regular group last week, and unfortunately the answer was Yes.

I hear you Roger - rather frustrating, isn't it?

Thanks Steve. I guess the best thing to do is wait and see before you buy because if the game is good it will rise in the ratings.

Bought this locally in Falmouth during the winter but only got round to playing this a few weeks ago as a two player. It worked ok but i feel that it would work better with three or four to spread the activity across the board. The game is fairly straightforward but needs a little time invested to get your head around the rules. This is not a bad game and I will take it to Baycon next week to try out on the other Cornwall gamers.

@Roger or anyone else wanting a more involved/competitive game than the 2player currently offers...I have been working on a card driven AI (initially to allow solo play against 2 AI opponents) that works just as well turning a 2 player game into 4 player)
There is a bit more detail on this here: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1609704/cornish-smuggler-ai...
Cheers
