I'm thinking of trying this as a first game, with 4 players. Is the game decent with 4 or should I wait til we have 5? Thanks!

I found it fine with 4. It's probably easier to teach as there's less game state to comprehend.

It's great at all player counts. Just avoid the high player counts with too many new people and you'll be fine.

First time I played was with 8 players, only two of whom had played before (one was owner) and it went great. All were consummate gamers, though.

I've also played a 3-player game, and it worked very well, too. Agree that it works great at every player count!

No matter what, the first round is going to be confusing for first-time players. The sooner you get the first economy and bidding phases over with the better. After that most people pick it up immediately.

A 4-player game is great. And when you add players, everyone gets wealthier and it gets more and more awesome. But 4 is a great place to start, as people can monitor the available goods much more easily and get a feel for the game before it expands and their attention needs to as well.
