I have a pretty dedicated group of 5. has any one modified this to play with 5? perhaps giving the 5th player Friday and the Dog to use? just a quick thought. or would it make things too easy?

I've never tried, but I think playing with 5 would be more appropriate with the Beagle expansion, as 1 player could play Darwin

Your idea could work, but it will be an easier variant as Friday and Dog are not part of the game with 4 player in the normal difficulty
But if you prefer winning and the game already beat the hell out of you, you could go for it

We played 5 player with the Darwin expansion.

Darwin got the Horse, which essentially gave him his second player token.

Worked out well, and would do it again...though we discovered that due to some of the Event cards...Darwin is a jerk that likes to lounge on the beach.

We tried it with some of the fan made characters available in the files section. It works fine, but the game does get easier with more players. There does start to be some tension on where all the food will come from and which actions will be available, but we were frequently guaranteeing actions that we would have simply rolled for with fewer players.

In brief, it is doable, but not as good as with the recommended player count.

You could just be two people controlling one of the characters.

I have NOT tested this, so I don't know, how it would work. What I would try out, if I were in your situation would be:

1) Use Sailor (promo expansion) or Missionary (from Beagles expansion) to have a fifth character available.
2) Increase the building costs for shelter to 5 wood/ 4 hides.
3) Obviously apply the "4 player card" to the "tidy camp" action.
4) Probably apply some other rules to increase slightly the difficulty to make up for your additional character, which comes with two bonus actions and additional hit points. A promo expansion like the Secret Trait Cards might do the trick.
