I'm a bit confused on how to play 2-player. Can anyone explain it and say if it's as enjoyable as 2-player or was better/meant to be played with more than 2? As a party game. Thanks

As a two player game it's not that great. The way it works is if team red goes first you cover a team blue card every turn. So if you only cover 1 team red card each turn or give a bad clue blue wins. So you have 7 turns to cover all the red. Which means no mistakes and on at least one turn you need to cover 2 red squares.

We find it quite enjoyable with 2 (or even 3, using the 2 player rules) but it is not the same thing as playing a full team game.

You could easily keep track of games won/lost and increase/ decrease 'opponent's' cards played per round.
Similarly how pandemic legacy handles aid cards.. if you win game gets a little harder.

Thanks. Great ideas & suggestions. Was hoping 2-player would play best.

It is definitely better with more players (preferably at least 6), but that's because so much of the fun is talking with your teammates and laughing at the opposing team.

Mechanically it works great with two.
