When I game it's generally always my wife and I, and I'm always on the lookout for something different.

Does the 2 player co-op merit purchasing this even if I have no intention of playing solo?

We haven't played any of the other Oniverse games, but we really like TD which is what caught our eye.

Thanks!

Yes, it's worth purchasing as a two player game. Me and my wife have only been playing it as two player game and it's good that way. I can't say if it's better or worse as a one player game, but it works as a two player game. If it seems like a game you would enjoy, get it.

Haven't yet tried out the 2p variant, but it even works (for me and my wife) as playing as a single player and discussing what to do next, simulating one player by discussion, really.

I think it works very well with 2. I enjoy the mechanic that one player must discard cards to pay for the other player's cards. It really gives a sense of cooperation and balance with your partner.

here is the tought of someone that doesnt enjoy solo games ( but i actualy like sylvion )

negatives:
- set-up isnt that quick compared to other small solo game
positives:
- theme work really well, i actualy feel im fighting a fire
- once the set-up is done, your not shuffling every turn ( GREAT! )
- the list kinda goes on and on

but !!

i woulnt recommend it for 2 players...
let me rephrase that, it works whit two, and works great BUT there are so many amazing amazing deeper and richer 2 player games

so... i WOULD recommend sylvion as a solo game that you wana try whit 2 players a few time
i would NOT recommend sylvion as a two player games that you wana try solo a few times

here are .. in my opinion, much stronger 2 player games

- patchwork
- targui
- pandemic
- seasons
- battle line
- carcasonne the castle
- splendor
- most abstract ( hive )

this is just my opinion XD

Right, but if you were looking for a two-player coöp game, well, the only game you mention is Pandemic that is coöp. And it is nice to have variety.

I agree whit you but.. I cant recommend the purchase of sylvion as a main two player game.

I Would rather play
-pandemic
-robinson crusoe
- elder sign
- eldritch horror
- forbiden desert

As a 2 player Coop,

If i would describe sylvion it would be a amazing solo game whit a nice 2 player variant that works well.
But its stil a solo game

Opinion may differ, but that's me.
