Have heard quite a bit about the game but nothing about the 2p game play. Just wondering if anyone has played it at 2p and what they think about it.

Thank you

These guys have a nice 2 player play through video and give their thoughts about it at the end.

It's lovely. Much better than more players for us. With 3 or four there are too many pairs of hands crossing the board, grabbing the bag etc. It gets really annoying trying to see the map while someone is flipping discarded tiles for example.

We also found it much better paced, not far off the same sort of pacing for a non-real-time game (if that makes sense). Being able to do what you want when you feel like it (in accordance with rules of course) was still there but there wasn't any real pressure to think quickly, although you do still try and act quickly once you've figured out what you want to do.

So what we ended up with was a rather relaxing, very enjoyable, totally sociable shared activity of creating something sort of together and sort of against each other with what felt like less pressure than you'd find normally in gaming when people are waiting for you to take your turn. There really is no obvious, consistent downside to moving quickly or more quickly than someone else, in our experience so far. And so you sort of play at a pace comfortable to you and somehow also in harmony with your opponent.

Gosh it's hard to describe...

Loved it. Love it. And am very surprised by that fact because 'as described' 4 Gods is so totally not my thing at all.

This game is great with two, very thinky especially if you are over optimiziers like we are. I suggest the two god rule for your first game though.
