I wish the question about which player count was best were a multiple choice selection. I would have selected all of them, since I think it works equally well at each count.
Also, the last question presumes that someone in the group can support four players, which isn't true. No one in my group has enough support four players, although most have enough to share between two players. Everyone has been building their own decks or borrowing cards to do so without trouble, but no one is feeling obligated to provide for a four person group.

Yep. It's an LCG, the default assumption is that players each approach the game with their own collection. This poll doesn't seem to even consider that possibility?

Also needs options for multiple groups/game nights with large groups who mix and match players campaign to campaign.

ETA: Also, for owning 2 core sets, along with various expansion options.

I suppose I could've added that option (BYOCs), last week I likened playing this game like Magic The gathering in that you and your friends each bring your own cards to play.

Please, add your own poll to this threads for nuances I missed.
Thanks!
