Nuts! Thanks for the confirmation. At least there's another expansion on the horizon to wait for since we'll have to pass on this one.
I find that it's still a blast to play with two people. My wife and I play it all of the time. She controls 2-3 (sometimes all) of the bandits or vice versa.
We have a lot of laughs playing this. Plus Having an extra bandit (Mei) is nice as well. And allowing for the base game to be played with 7 players now is also very awesome.
I'm speaking as someone who's never just played the two player variant. We've always used every bandit. It makes for a lot more chaos and fun.
