We've always played with four. I'm surprised that three is more popular.

The compass always points to Terrapin.

I've played with both numbers (and with 2 as well) and I love them all. Great game, best of the (extended) Mystery Rummy series, IMHO. You should get it.

Why do you think it might be worse with four instead of three?
Beats me. I figure...

--lack of control
Some people may believe having too many players is too chaotic, just like with dozens of other games out there.

--too long
my 1st game of WE, with 4p, with 3 of 4 players being new, but not new to Rummy took 2 hours. It WAS fun, but would only do again if the next game will be closer to the 60min playtime as indicated on the box.

Thanks for all the opinions guys. I guess this is just a case of a misleading BGG player poll. Everyone I talked to here seems to think that it's great with four, so who knows?


I can see that several of my card-playing friends prefer it with 3 only. But I am not really a card shark, so I don't mind that it is slightly more chaotic with 4 players.

Well my guess is that since there are only 7 of each Outlaw card there can be a bit hard to get the 3 needed to play the first set. Otherwise I don't see any problem.

Yes it's a very good game. I'm trying to get the Mystery rummy games that are simmular to Wyatt Earp.
