My partner and I love Pandemic and love the concept of a Legacy game of it, but it's doubtful that we'll have a regular group beyond just us two for it. The game says it plays 2 to 4, but do you guys think it'll be worth getting if we do only ever play with 2?

Given how popular the base game was for couples, I imagine that it's been playtested to work at that number.

I've played pandemic a dozen times with only 2 players.

Love it.

If it's anything like regular Pandemic then yes for sure. I probably have the MOST fun with Pandemic as a couples' game - we never bother with 2 characters each but because of the Legacy element that might be a better way to go here.

I really like the idea of playing 2 characters each. I don't know why I didn't think of that since we actually play several other games that way (notably Sentinels of the Multiverse). Thank you guys a lot. You have renewed my enthusiasm for getting this. I've been looking forward to it all year but as the time draws near my anxiety had me looking for reasons it might not live up to the hype.

I'm really keen to know this too.

From a financial perspective - a game that will be over in 10-20 plays is much easier to justify for a group of 4 than a group on 2...I think I'm going to work hard to get a group of 4 together before release.

As far as only 12-24 plays. I only have 20 games that I've played (and logged) more than 10 times. Even if I only get 18 plays out of this, I'm sure it will pay for itself. $50 for the, at 36 hrs of entertainment (for both of us) is about $1.50 an hour. Can't beat that.

Really looking forward to playing this with my wife.
