Trying to stretch my gaming dollar....I've read many times that the optimum player count is three. Is two not enough interaction? And four too long? My gaming is either two (me and wife), or another couple.

And when, exactly, are we playing Churchill again?

For full disclosure: I edited the English language rules.

In my opinion, three is definitely the best, but two-player is quite good as well. There are some things you just won't want to do in a two-player game (most of the time), but I find the interaction quite good, nevertheless.

As for four-player, I don't find it too long. Turns go by so super-fast, it just doesn't make that much of a difference.

Agree with Andrew. It's like, 3p is a 9, but 2p and 4p are still 8.75

I've played more than once at all player counts and like them all. While four takes longer it also offers more interesting opportunities for dice movement. Also, I don't think I've ever had a 4P take more than 90 minutes, so it still falls into my acceptable limits.
