I love Race and Roll, but Race was too much for my wife. She enjoys Castles of Burgundy and a handful of other games.

Is this good with two? It seems light enough.

Jump drive is light but very good - strong recommendation -

13 Minutes: The Cuban Missile Crisis is also worth looking at in that short interesting 2 player game vibe

It's fine/great with 2. It's easier to watch what your opponent is doing, but some of the leaching cards are going to be less effective.

Weight-wise, comparing it to other games you have rated, it's heavier than Rise of Augustus. I would argue that it fits into the same broad category as Splendor, 7 Wonders, or Lost Cities.

It's quite a bit lighter than Race or Roll, so get your expectations aligned before you try it.

Just started playing it.

After 2 games of 2 player, my 2 cents for 2 player play is that it's quick and dirty and great fun. 2 thumbs way up.

Also tried it 4 player, but it became onerous due to weight of rules lawyers rules lawyering.

edit> Found this in another thread about High Income, so to give Chris Johnson his due, if due, the 4 player experience was a likely PEBTAC manifestation.

"PEBTAC - Problem Exists Between Table And Chair."
