I'm just curious if anyone has played the 2 player version of this and how that went. Did you find it fun? Is 3 or 4 much better?

take care!

Doug

Re: Anyone played this with just 2 Players? If so, how is it
I tried it once with my wife some years ago. We both enjoyed it, there's enough interesting action and atmosphere, and I'd be happy to try again - just that our gaming time together is limited. One of my favorite games at any rate, especially if I can get three or four players.

Re: Anyone played this with just 2 Players? If so, how is it
My wife and I played it 2 player, and we weren't overly impressed. I think it would be a good game with more players, but with only 2 each person gets multiple animal species to control, and it becomes tricky to change the environment in a way that benefits all your animals. If your opponent changes the environment, chances are that one or more of your own animals will benefit from the change as well. Thus the goal / strategy becomes a bit muddled. The game worked, though.

Re: Anyone played this with just 2 Players? If so, how is it
When I've played with 2 players, we've used an optional rule I came up with to add some randomness to the face-down chits. "Mother Nature" affects the environment, not just the players, by putting two randomly drawn chits down every turn in spaces determined by dice throws.

It works quite well and makes a 2-player game fun.

Excellent suggestion, Jude! Looking forward to trying it out - sounds like it would give that nice extra kick to the two-player game.
