How does this play with 2 players? Is it recommended to play with 3-4 to get the best of of the game? Are there any dummy players, etc in 2 player version?

For 2 players the game recommends you play two characters each.

You get the most by playing 4 and after the base adventure, the game does compensate a bit for having only 3 players.

You can only experience an adventure once.

Is it possible to find another two people to share that time with?

My wife and I each controlled two characters with no issue.

Have a read through the Variants forum for the game, there are several discussions there about 2-player games.

I'm currently playing a 2-Player variation:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
- Start TU at 35
- When resolving tests, each try increases +1 die for the player
- All items must be kept facedown. The player who own the item can look at it whenever they want, but must keep it face down. Player 2 can ask what it is whenever, but the owning player can only explain their hand. (I've added this to keep up the story-telling aspect of the game. If each player can see everything, it's a bit easier to remember things along your journey. So this rule increases the amount of player communication while keeping the game fun and challenging)
