When playing with 2 do you use 2 characters each or just stay with 2

I always play 4 investigators, regardless of the number of individuals around the table

I'd prefer to play 2 investigators each in that case, but 1 each still works.

The game is best balanced with 4 investigators, but it works fine with 3-6 and OK with 2 IMO. I've even played with 8 and it wasn't awful.

Love it two-player x 4 investigators--very little down time!

My wife and I have never played with anything other than 2 investigators (1 each) and it works just fine. Win or lose, most games generally come down to the wire. goo

One of the few games of this kind where I tend to go 1 char per player (by comparison, Arkham Horror I go four always). Fewer is always easier (insta-win at 0 !), as trophies and items pile up on one character, you'll have a surplus of stuff very quickly.

I play this one mostly with my wife, and we use one investigator each. Contrary to Eldritch Horror, where we use two each meeple
