I was thinking of buying this as I can get it at a decent price and enjoyed playing the full game recently with 4 players. I wanted to know how this version alone plays with 2 people using the Prisoners Dilemma variant. Many thanks!
Hi, keeping in mimd that this game hits its sweet spot at 4 players (5 is also nice), we played the 2 player variant with and without the prisoner variant. In short, this game is rather bland cooperative (regardless of playercount), thus then2 player game as in the rules are very very easy and unforfilling. This being said, the prisoner dilemma save it a bit. It returns the stress levels and distrust from the normal full game.
So yes, it works and its fun.
Overall, if you have a good deal get the game regardless and find yourself 1 extra player.
