Is there a variant for two players? Special rules for playing a two-player challenge? Possible?
Thank you.

I don't see any in the rules. The rules for A Brief History of the World suggest the following:

Quote:
Two-player game
A Brief History of the World has been designed for three to six players. However if you wish to play with just two players, we suggest the following rules:

each player plays two colours, using two sets of armies and two Gold markers.

the player with the highest combined total of gold at game end wins.

a player can choose to surrender an army to an army of his other colour in just the same way as he can surrender one of his own resigned armies.

in all other cases the two colours are played as separate empires.

all other rules remain in place.

So you can confirm that even in two players using the variant the game remains valid?
