I've had my eye on this one. Definitely glad to see it played on Game Night. How does it play with less than 4 players? Is it still fun with 2?

The game is a lot tougher for 2. The first and the last place tiles are left in the game and it is a 6 dirt difference between them and if someone just rolls once and grabs first place the difference in dirt will win the game for them. Maybe if 1st and 2nd or 1st and 3rd were the tiles used the game would probably be more satisfying for 2.

Good to know. Definitely think it'd probably be best with using the 1st and 2nd or 1st and 3rd because as you said, a 6 dirt difference would be pretty overwhelming.

This is hands-down my wife's favorite game and we play almost exclusively two player. The 6-dirt difference between first and last is a big swing in a round, but not insurmountable. Especially considering that once the first player rushes to take the card, the second player can then take their time and be very strategic with their remaining re-rolls. I often find that I rush to get the 1st player most rounds and she'll still beat me even with taking the extra dirt. It's definitely very enjoyable with two.

The one major difference that sticks out to us with two is that there isn't as much competition for the rides and stands (since all of these stay available and there are half as many people vying for them).

Thanks for the info. Yeah, I definitely think I'll be picking it up some time soon.

Is there a reason this is a private video on YouTube? I subscribe there and usually find new videos that way. Wouldn't have seen this without seeing it on the BGG homepage.

Sorry, I must've pulled down and selected unlisted instead of public. I just changed it. Thanks for the note.
