Looking for an easy game to play with the wife. Does this qualify as a worthy 2-player game? I realize I maybe bored out of my mind with this, but I like to find stuff my wife won't find too threatening.

A brilliant game for three. You need to play it a couple of times to "get" all the things you can do with what initially seem like very constrained placement rules. Ends up being much more of a brain-burner than expected. The production values are up to Queen's typically wonderful standards, although the rules translation is a bit ropey. Some have said that it is very abstract, but the theme works really well when explaining the game. Recommended if you like Aton by the same designer.

Your choices are more limited and therefore easier with four.

Horrible with two. Avoid!

Aton, also by Queen and Gimmler, should meet your criteria though.

I totally disagree that it's horrible with 2... I played a couple of games last night and both were tight right to the finish. However, we played with all 8 neutral guards, one placed in each palace at start and one other placed by each of the players.

I totally disagree about it's horrible with 2. I played yesterdays and the game offers a lot of options that can make it slower but it can be very funny also.

I just played my first game with only 2 and it was quite good. I can't wait to play with 4.

I must whole heartidly disagree, I find it to be a marvellous two player game, the first few rounds are fast paced and it takes little time to reach 3 or 4 chests, the remaining 2 can prove terribly elusive, especialy if your opponent can keep moving those neutral guards. This game has considerably more depth than many appreciate.
