The community vote seems to suggest, 2 player game should be avoided. Is it really bad? What are the problems with it?
Kemet is primarily a combat oriented game, but it's also an area control game, and area control with 2 is not usually optimum. Two player is not a "great" way to play the game (my personal opinion), but it IS a great way to learn
the game. If you are teaching and/or learning the game for the first time, 2-player is great. If you are intent on learning how the powers interact and how movement around and across the board can be approached, 2-player is great for learning that.
But the game really shines with 4-5 players. If you grab Giant Scorpion and Initiative, for example, expect to have to deal with the full table either going defensive or possibly even teaming up and turning against you. But in a two player game, player 2 would likely grab the Ancestral Elephant and possibly (probably) Legion to counter Giant Scorpion and Initiative, making each side relatively equal again.
With two players, the "race" to the power tiles in a multiplayer game becomes instead a move-counter-move approach.
Additionally the map opens up to another control option--Sanctuary of All Gods and Delta Temple--for 3 and 5 players, something else to keep in mind.
It's a great game, though. Enjoy!
