I hear this is a single player game. Why does the BGG description states 1-4 players? How does this work as 2+ player game?

There is a variant included to make it 1-4p, but this is something I would only play solo or jointly with one of my kids.

I agree with Jack. It's a dice chucker, so I can see playing with one other person to split up the actions a bit, but not more. I think a 4 player game would be extremely boring.

It has a co-op mode to handle up to four players.

I played this the other day with a friend, two players. It is a fantastic game BUT it is DEFINITELY not a multiplayer game! It is solo ONLY!

*eg. if my friend and I shared a single xbox controller to play Skyrim, that doesn't make Skyrim a two player game (couldn't think of a better example

Yeah this is just really a solo game. They basically just added the co-op version to the game. Not sure if they did that hoping more people would buy it thinking that it was something other than a solo game.
If you market it as a solo game only then you will only have the solo gamers buy it. Listing it as 1-4 players might get other people to buy it.

The Skyrim example is perfect. If you and three of your friends shared a single controller to play Skyrim that would be a 1-4 player game also.

I'm really enjoying the game and I can actually see myself running it as a g.m. for someone to play sometime. I think it'd be fun. Explain the rules and then see what moves he chooses. Yeah, that probably sounds a little weird, but maybe fun.
