Surprised this hasn't been asked yet but with only 1 rating in the best with # of players poll, I figured I'd seek out some thoughts for those who have played this with just 2?
I have the same question. I came across this on boardgamebliss, and it looks like a game I would enjoy, but I've been hesitant to pull the trigger without first seeing a play-through of a couple of rounds.
In a nut shell VERY WELL.
We have played 2 3 and 4 players.
And I would say 4 is optimal but 2 is also very good.
To get the most out of this game though DO NOT BE NICE.
You are here to win after all.
In our four player game thing escalated when mr pink stole a commodity mr white wanted causing some anger.
This then escalated to the arena wher they concentrated on battering each other every turn possible. needles to say they then did not have the resources to help protect the town from the titans in the underworld and this soon led to the destruction of out fair city.
There are so many ways to directly or subtly effect thing in this game it is amazing.
The simplicity and shortness of the rules belies its depth. Brilliant design.
All this over some grapes LOL.
don't be put of by the board it is clear and clean and acts as a cheat sheet in itself I think it's a genius of design.
We love this so much.
