Chris Farrel says this game needs the optional trading rules else it's multi-player solitaire.

Whether he's right or wrong (tell me what you think anyway) the question I need answering is does the game work at 2 player with the trading rules?

I don't know this game, I'm just researching 2 player games for a friend who is desperate to find an alternative to Monopoly Deal that she is forced to play with the teen she mentors.

While I can't answer that, perhaps Cribbage could be worth looking at as an alternative? We played many, many games of that prior to discovering Ticket to Ride and Dominion.

We didn't have a huge issue with two players, though it's largely multi-player solitaire for most of the game. The Iron Age is a bit more interactive, though still not much.

There are quite a few good options out there for 2p in the "Gateway Game" category, though.

Pure mathematics is the world's best game. It is more absorbing than chess, more of a gamble than poker, and lasts longer than Monopoly. It's free. It can be played anywhere - Archimedes did it in a bathtub

This is multiplayer solitary and it is a fun game but gets old quite fast if you play several times in a row because the results are quite similar between games. IMHO the best ligth 2p game is Battle Line. It is fun (tense), fast and easy to teach and a lot more than deep than it seems you didnt play the same after 100 plays than after 10 for sure. And it have infinte replayability,
