Finished a 2 player game today. First time to play the game, there is a lot going on for a risk game. Has anyone else played the 2 player mercenary varient? It seemed fiddly.

We did play with two mercenary armies. It is not fiddle if you see it as an integral part of the game. There is excitement about bidding and perhaps bluffing. The game is slower with the extra armi s I am sure, but it's a richer experience than merely one opponent. Money management is an even bigger struggle...

Have you tried the 3-4 also? It seems like those games would have less book keeping.

We were learning the game, it took over 3 hours. Experienced players could probably play it in under an hour.

One of the merc armies got taken out early in the game. This dragged the game out because we were both bidding on one army most of the game. I would much rather play against 4 players. Seemed like there was a good game there it just went on too long for my taste.
