Just wondering if there was any kind of two player variant for this expansion? We'd like to give it a go as two players before including a larger group. Has anyone tried this?

Thanks.

Either both play as two different people each (2 vs 2 game) or follow some of the single player variant rules from dead of winter (ex: specific starting cards, 2 extra dice more than characters rather than one, draw 6 characters and discard 2, etc...). I haven't tried the later and I'm not sure how it'll effect how combat phase works out with less survivors.

I don't think you're going to have much luck doing crossroad cards and simultaneous turns. So either skip the crossroad cards or take turns.

You're also not going to be able to really try how lone wolf functions without an odd number of players.
