I've only played this with 5 and it was a blast.

Has anyone played with both 3 and 5 players? How did it compare? I am thinking that it would not be as good with 3.

I have a chance to play this with a 3 player group but am hesitant to bring it out in case it disappoints with that number.

The one time I played it with three, I didn't find it very interesting. There wasn't very much competition in the first phase. I love it with either four or five, though.

I tried it at 3 and never again with that number. Negotiation games with 3 players are not interesting.

I'm dying to try it with 4 or preferably 5.

Thanks for the replies. I really wanted to introduce a couple of people to it but there is no point if the game doesn't deliver with three.

All I can say is that it is an amazing experience with 5. So much dealing and back stabbing both in the politics phase and the battle phase. I lost my last game just because I couldn't get an assassination token on the last turn to kill the prime candidate of Corinth. You need to play with people who understand and enjoy its dirty, double dealing nature.

My thoughts exactly. Were we supposed to be negotiating?
