How hard is it to play solo but with 2 investigators? Is it a lot to keep track of? How does the game handle 3 players? Is it still as fun or does it have too much downtime/ to easy? My group normally has 3. I would buy 2 starter sets.

I've only played solo with 2 investigators. I don't think it is difficult but then again I've played the board game with 4 investigators solo several times.

I use card holders to keep the cards separated which helps me focus on each a little easier. With the cheat sheet to make sure I did the turn in order, it was very easy to keep track of everything.

I don't see a third player adding too much downtime.

Two handed solo isn't difficult. Scaling isn't an issue for this game. Plays great at any count.

I've played both 2 and 3 player games - both work fine. The 3 player game did take a bit longer, but we had a great time, and having an extra player brings the co-op elements even further to the foreground, since you'll be more likely to be in the same location as another player. We only played the first scenario though.
