"Music That Glows In The Dark"

Does one player have to play multiple characters or does the game scale properly like the box will say?

Minimum 2 players, 1 for the creature and 1 for the hunted. The game fit very well for 2 to 7 players but you never play different characters.

I think (this is with one play with 4 players: 1 Alien and 3 survivors) that the game is definitely playable with two players. At the beginning, I think that the survivor player will have better luck hiding. However, later in the game, the Alien may have an advantage as they only have to keep track of the cards that one player has available (whereas, it was obviously more difficult for the Alien player to keep track of which cards were held by three survivor players). With four, it was a tight game, though the survivors were able to pull a wide lead and win.

"playable" or "works well" are two different things.

Might be contentious but at the moment I like it BEST with only two players. Maybe at this count some of the nuances of the system don't get a chance to shine but the experience is awesome, a really fun and often very funny cat and mouse one-on-one battle with terrific tension, some awesome 'he thinks that I know that he knows that I...' moments and lots of replayability.

Agree with you. I also like the 2-player game ... a face to face
