Bought this yesterday. My wife an I play. She buys about 4 cards that trigger off of a 2 roll. She rolls it almost every turn. Gets more and more coins until she buys the airport. Then she gets 10 per turn and buys all the other upgrades.

I tried to buy all different things, to mitigate my dice rolls and cover all the sides. The stealing didn't trigger on her when she rolled say a 5 or a 3 or whatever because she never did.

Yes, if someone gets lucky, it can happen. Rushing the Airport and then coasting off of that is a viable strategy if you can get the money together. It does sound like your wife had a substantial amount of luck though and it is probably not likely that something that one-sided would happen again soon. I wouldn't let it ruin the game for you.

Also as a side note, I would say Red cards are not as viable in 2-player and you are probably better off not investing into them heavily in such games.

Or just play a different two player game, or possibly get rid of the Airport in two player games. The game has issues at this player count.
