It is, but I say that with some reservation. There is a feature of the game where, if your ant ends on the same space as another ant, your ant "piggybacks" (stacks on top). Piggybacking ants have a chance to move across the board faster, but are also more easily caught by the spider.

When I play with my 4-year-old. She honestly couldn't care less if she wins, but she loves moving the spider and catching others' ants. Because ants are generally more difficult to catch in a two player game, she would say it's less fun in that regard.

On the other hand, with more players, there is more downtime between turns. Waiting to take a turn, while good for teaching a 4-year-old patience, isn't necessarily fun.

Honestly though, if you're playing with kids (which is the only way I'd recommend this game), if they enjoy the game, they'll enjoy it at any player count.
