Played twice today 2 player with my wife with one character each. Both times one of us was the spotter. I don't think the spotter works in a 2 player game because you constantly know what the next fire card will be for the other player.This makes the game to easy in my opinion. We won both games pretty easily. This is easily fixed by having players control 2 characters each. With 4 characters in the game, the spotter power isn't so powerful. I played a solitaire game with 4 characters and it worked out much better. We both love this game and it will get many plays.
