Hi,

I've only played a couple of games 2 player, but in each game it kind of felt that every choice I made was pretty obvious. I think this may be because there's less competition at 2 player and therefore there's less chance of someone else taking the card you need.

Anyone else feel like this? Maybe with more plays it'll change.

I felt the same. Just to be sure though, you are using the 2 player side of the board that removes cards over time to limit your choices?

Yes, using the 2 player dummy mechanic, but didn't really feel any tension from it. Maybe the take that cards at the higher player counts make it more interesting?

I found it better with 3 or more, personally. I played with two the first time to learn the game.

I've played 2p, 3p and 5p (besides the solitaire). The last one was the best one for me, much more funny and more tense. Besides one player who was a bit lost a great part of the time, thr competition was high with the leader changing each season.

3p-5p is best, of course, but I've played 2p a couple times (with the AI removal of cards, and with the 'advanced' cards) and it's been a very similar game to the 3p-5p.
There are more cards to choose from at the higher player counts, true, but I thought they were reasonably comparable experiences.
