I also would say Mecixo.

But if you want to go for sure, ask Ender.

Mexico would guarantee bringing you into conflict (i.e. competing for links/cubes). In Europe it would also happen, but to a lesser extent.

Mexico if you want a more cut-throat game between experienced players. Europe if you want a touch less cut-throat and a touch more do-your-own-thing. If you want to continue moving along that spectrum then look at Great Britain.

Mexico for 2. My second choice for two would be either Great Britain or Canada (Railways of North America).

Play some other game designed for 2 players. RotW scales poorly to 2 players.

To us, Mexico was fine, but was much more restrictive. This means players fight more (which is what I assume everyone else posting to this thread prefers) but it also means there's less variety in the way the game and the map organically expands over the course of play.

That's why we prefer Europe... each game "feels" a lot more unique (whether it actually is more unique is open for debate, but to us, it feels that way), and there can still be plenty of conflict if players want it.

I would also guess that a bigger map makes for a tight fight at the end. That way both players can get the satisfaction of building up before the heat is on.

Hmm, I should probably specify Mexico with the Baron & Operation cards, as the map is rather flat without those (first printing did not include them, but they are available separately).
