Just wondering if it were possible without altering the game fundamentally if a 5player variant would be possible.
If not I would be curious to why the designer thinks it doesn't work with 5.
Thanks in advance!

5P?? I don't see myself playing with 4P let alone 5! To me it's pretty clear why the designer stop at 4...probably should've stop at 3... The AP the game causes is great because of the decisions to be made and you can't really plan your next turn when there are 3 other players (4 in a 5p game) that will change dramatically the state of the game before you play again...

The game would be overly long and with too much downtime... It would be a drag!

After some sessions I think indeed 4p is insane for a normal game of SM, let alone 5p. However, you could play instead of 3 years play only 1 year, then just do end scoring.
Will still take short of an hour, but people will get a real good idea of the game.
