We played 2-handed without a dummy. OK, it didn't work quite the way it was meant to, but it was fun!

It works just fine with 2 players, not a chore at all. You just deal off some cards to the side, when a rain card comes up in the deck, you look at the top 2 of those cards.

We play slightly differently to the 2 player variants listed here. We deal 10 cards in a pile for the rain cards as they suggest, but we also start out by turning up 2 cards for the dummy player and placing 2 animals.

That gives them a couple more animals, and that way there's more competition for majorities in the first half of the game (where no rain cards can come up.)
