I just got a copy of the base game and the Mancers expansion. I mostly play games 2 player, before I decide to take a game to a game group (that way I can get a better grasp of the rules before I have to explain the rules to new players). I would love to give this game a try, but I am not sure which rules/setup to use for a first game that only has 2 players. There is an official 2 player variant in the rulebook, but it also states that it's not recommended for new players. So I'm not sure how to tackle this beast...

In the variants section of this forum I found a post of some house rules for 2 players: house rules for 2 players
Are these recommended for a first playthrough of the game? Or does anyone else have some other suggestions they would like to share? Thanks!

I played my first game (2p) with the official rules, no variants. Worked absolutely fine IMO.

The standard 2 player rules are fine, but they are going to be low on interaction because there will be a lot of spaces for players to use.

The variants where there are fewer rooms will make for a more competitive game.
