Having read through the rules, I don't see any reason why one person couldn't control two characters (and the allies). Unless this messes up the planning phase somehow.

It's a cooperative game. So what's keeping you from playing solo with two characters?

I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks.

I don't see why not. It could be a bit difficult working two characters through the planning phase, but it'd probably be a fun challenge.

Yeah, you're right! It could be tough doing all that planning all by yourself.
I hope they can come up with a good solution for you solo guys!

It is definitely possible to play the game solo, but as Peter points out, you might feel a little stressed

In my experience, playing the 2-p game (with allies) takes less planning time. You could probably play on the normal difficulty with 1 player controlling 2 characters fairly easily.

And by easily, I mean as easy as a game called London DREAD can get. devil

So does the game work well with two then?

I think it does. With 2-3 you use allies which actually complicates the puzzle a little, but since individual character (with allies) can solve dread/plot cards with less coordination required it often allows you to plan more efficiently.

3p is probably my favorite player count. I play on Hard (10 minutes) with 2 I might play on Dread (8 Minutes) but I have played the game many many times.
