This game doesn't seem like it would work well with two.. Hope I'm wrong, please tell me so.

Yes it works with 2. I've played and enjoyed it. If you read the 2 player variant it is actually a 3 player game with a ghost. The other change is that 1 player is not automatically beheaded ( they need twice as many treason points instead of the most). The only rule/suggestion that didn't make it into the rulebook is that the Master of Shadows should not be used in the 2 player game.

Also, if you got the promo characters I wouldn't use the Black Widow in the 2-player game. The rest of the characters should all be just fine though.

Played 2-player with my brother last night (his first game, my 50+). Influence tokens were 67pts to 67pts. Buildings were 10pts to 10pts. I beat him on the faction tracks though for the win. He had 13 treason to my 11 so no beheadings occured.

Master of Shadows is more broken than Black Widow in 2-player. MoS's ability to give away a treason card each turn is an auto win in 2-player

Having said that, however, MoS is balanced properly for multi-player because that ability costs 2 influence to use.

MoS is definitely not for 2 players. But Black Widow holding a Countess card or 2 can also be an auto-win as well.
