I see that this plays from 1 - 12 players with no votes as to the best number. I am hoping to play this with 5 tomorrow. Is that a decent number of players or should I hold out to play with more?

Edit: added question mark

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!
