Does this game work well in two players? Still good and fun? Thank you.

Seems like you double your rolls with 2p. The biggest downside is with less player pawns then the less frequent ousting will occur...maybe not a huge deal, but a free roll is a free roll.

Otherwise, it shouldn't be that much different then the 3p or 4p game.

The biggest change will be more space for movement around the board since it is less likely someone is occupying a space you really want. Man vs Meeple talked a little bit about this in the video preview they did. I think it should be fine with 2 players.

I haven't played the game with 2 players yet, only with 3 and 4. So I'll try to be careful about jumping to conclusions. However, it seems very likely to me that this will indeed be the biggest problem with 2 players.

However, I think it would be an easy house rule to combine some of the action spaces. For example, combining the 1/1/2/3 spots into a single location on the sun side, and the 1/1/2/3 spots into a single location on the moon side. Then, combining the 4/5 spots on the sun side with the 4/5 spots on the moon side.

That way you have a total of 4 action spots for 2 players as opposed to 7 action spots for 3 or 4 players. I'll certainly be trying this variant in the future.

Less ousting isn't a factor at all. It's self-balancing. You don't need to be ousted to be successful, but if a player is constantly doing it, you will surpass them in point/resource production. There is no need to create a house rule that increases it.
