I agree a variant is needed especially in a 2 player game. The blocking makes it impossible to utilise resources and very quickly you will be maxed out on gold, workers and goods in the mill. We suggest that in the 2 player game a second worker is allowed on the board but at a cost of 4 gold to place in an occupied space. Our 2 player games have reached a total stalemate because occupied spaces need to be cleared with the gatekeeper but then you cannot visit the board again that round to use the now free space. Evening comes along and we are discarding resources that we have just obtained and so the cycle begins again.
Absolutely love 3+ players but with 2 it's almost broken without the variant.
I wouldn't say it's broken just needs a little finesse. I like the idea of sending two workers per turn but might not be fair since you could clear it then take a valuable spot right away. Maybe the option is just to use a spot that is already occupied so you're not blocked out it just costs more. .
