The only difference in the 2 player game is that the occupations are only the 1+, 2 wood instead of 3, and you don't use the beginning 6 action cards on the left of the first board. Is that correct?
It seemed the game seemed pretty difficult to accumulate anything...
Remember, in phase 2 you add new good to the action spaces and cards with arrows pointing there even if goods are already there. So if there is already 3 wood on the action space, you place 3 more wood there in the replenishing phase (phase 2). I hope you were playing that right!
And you add 3 wood in a 2-5 player game. It's only 2 wood if you are playing solo.
