The box says 3-6 players, and the rules seem to focus on four-player games, with a three-player variant.

I bought this because I was led to believe it was basically snap with more thinking involved, so I was expecting something more two-player centric.

Has anyone played it two-player? Does it work? Were there any rule changes required?

Hi Matthew

I'm the creator of Anomia. You can definitely play a two-player version.

Basically, you need to understand how the regular game works for three or more players. Then, in the two-player variant, each player defends two Play Piles, instead of one.

Draw cards, one at a time, and if there is a symbol match or Wild Card match, then you face off just like the regular game.

Note: If you draw a card that matches a symbol on your own side, then both players attempt to give an example of the just-drawn card.

Essentially, you are replicating a 4-player game for two people.

Hope that helps!

Andrew
