Hello! I have the option of buying a new big box el grande (which is very expansive) or a used rattus+2 expansions (much more cheaper). Could someone who has played both tell me if rattus gives them the same feeling as el grande? also, which of the two is better as a 2 player game?

i'm more inclined to get rattus because of the shorter play time and the lower price. is el grande that much better in order to justify the higher price?

You should only consider El Grande, if you usually play with 4-5 players. The game does not work well with two players.
Owning the expansions included in the Big Box edition is not essential so you may consider buying the cheaper regular edition, maybe in used condition.

El Grande is the much, much better game. A classic. But only with 4-5 players I think is correct.
