Has anyone tried increasing the building stacks to 8 or 10 for a two player game? We hardly ever burn through the civilization cards and with only two building stacks the game can be over rather quickly sometimes.

I've played several 2P games on Yucata that end in Civ cards running out. Depends on how you play it.

I think using 8 or 9 huts would be worth while if you're also using the expansion cards.

I mostly play 2-player games; almost every game that I play ends due to civilization cards.

Do you use all 36? Perhaps we are doing something wrong?

You use all the cards, yes. Don't think of it as doing something wrong. You're doing something different. Nothing wrong with rolling through the hut piles.

Cool thanks. We enjoyed the game much more than I thought we would (not a fan of dryer euro games). We just wanted it to go a little longer so next time I'm going to increase the piles to 8 or 9, not sure.
