Very high! End scoring goals are randomly dealt at the beginning of the game and come out in different combinations every game. The card combos you can make in your tableau are going to be different depending on the card draws each game. All of these factors will influence how you prioritize actions and strategies. Let me know if you have other specific questions!

Are some elements left out each game or are they just mixed up? How does it play with two?

Thanks for this! Been waiting for this one on sale. Picked it up with Yunnan, and found Three Kingdoms Redux recently too. Along with At the Gates of Luoyang, I'm well on my way to a complete collection of China-themed worker placement games!

The random elements that determine scoring include:
-2 sets of end-game goals that each include wall segment locations, palace regions, and governor regions. There are 4 tiles for each of these objectives and 2 of each are placed, so you'll only ever use half.

-End-game score multipliers depending on wall segments claimed. These tiles are all used, but they are double-sided, so you'll have a different combo every game and only 50% of the options are available each game.

-There is a Brettspiel Adventskalender 2015 expansion that adds more to both of these if you are interested in hunting down a copy.

I've had great success with 2! You have to make sure to catch the scale rules for 2 in the rulebook: area majority elements are limited for 2, as well as some of the token supplies, which really helps keep tension in the game. FWIW, I have enjoyed the game at all player counts.

I hope that helps, and let me know if you have any other questions!
