What's the best number here? all i know is 4 players is way better than 3... how do 5 or 6 work?

my guess is 5 would be really good bc of an unstable balance of power...

love this game.

All I know is that six is too many. From Joe Gola's reports, 5 seems to be the sweet spot, aka "Not D'Este".

I've played numerous games with 5 and 6 players and have found the game to be equally enjoyable with both numbers.

I like it with any number, even if 3 isn't good as 4 or more.

In my case, I just want to get the game on the table. I want to try it and learn the rules and see if I like it.

IMHO the more the players are, the better is.
This is truer if you play with experienced players. Like many multiplayer games, a mistake or bad strategy will give disadvantages to other players as well and the game needs some session to be fully grasped by new ones.
