I'm currently scheduling a campaign with one group of 5 players, but we're looking like only playing once a month, which works very well for my other players, but I'm chomping at the bit.
Would getting a second copy of the game, playing it a little more frequently, and maybe with only three players, be worth my time and money?
No spoilers please, but I'd be interested in hearing from people who have completed or are are 2/3 of the way through the story so far.
The developer has stated that there's major advantages to having pre-existing knowledge of the campaign (unless all the other players have the same/similar pre-knowledge).
If you can come to a reasonable solution for that (i.e., the group of 5 doesn't mind spoilers, or doesn't mind being at a disadvantage, or trusts you to handicap yourself appropriately), then it should work. Otherwise, patience is a virtue :)
