I've been looking at Xia for awhile now and I absolutely love the game concept and mechanics I've been seeing. The only thing that's keeping me from buying it is that it's usually just myself and my wife playing games together, and Xia requires 3-5 players. Is this a game that's possible to play 2 player or is it like Cosmic Encounter where you absolutely have to have a minimum of 3 players?
Totally playable with 2p. You'll just have less interaction than with 3p+. I recommend playing with house rules that get the NPC ships out quicker when playing 2p.
