Does this game play well with two players?

Haven't played yet with 2 , but I doubt it would be good.
An area majority game like this needs 4 or 5 players.

Though 3 players do recommend it with 2.

Give it a shot and let us know

I bought this for a married couple in my gaming group and they have played it 6 or so times two player and still love it. They still like it with more, but it's still very playable and enjoyable with 2 (Per them). It's not "worse" with 2, it just plays and feels a little different when you're only fighting against one other person, but the tension is still there. Last week I played with them and those were their remarks after I asked them that same question.

That's good to hear, I can't wait until this sees a US release.

Cheers

Thank you both. I think I will give it a try when it comes out. Also, thanks Dan for the review, it definitely helped with peaking my interest.

My wife and I really enjoyed playing it 2 player. There wasn't much tension in the first round but by the last round we found it very compelling trying to maintain our country bonuses and take majorities in character types. I would definitely recommend it for 2.

Tom Vasel's comment for 2 players was that it was "very in your face".

You're very much mistaken. With two players this game is excellent - tight, and tense, with victory coming down to the wire.

What does this mean? It was a comment positive or negative? Thank You.

So you say that only play in two remains a good game?

It means the gameplay is quite aggressive.

formthose who like cutthroat competition, this is positive.

Thank you all for the information. If anyone still has impressions or opinions or advice to give me. More than anything I'm interested to know if the game remains valid and can be used even if played in two.

You've read and heard numerous comments by people who've actually played it that is does indeed work well with 2. What more are you looking for?

I've only played with two and we have really enjoyed it.
