Re: Best Number of Players
Hi Matt, seems you're in luck; five should be ideal. You have plenty of people to negotiate and trade with and yet still have the extra initiative to bid on, which can be a significant moment.
Numbers above 6 describe team play with The Republic of Rome in a meta-game. If you haven't played Carthage before, may be a good idea to play just the base game at least once first.
Thanks for your purchase!
