Fawkes and I are currently involved in a 2-Player T&E "Smackdown" here on BGG. He mentioned to me that he usually plays 2-Player T&E with four disaster tiles.

He indicates that this can offer more tactical play for the 2-Player game.

I was wondering if the inclusion of a "4 disaster tiles" option on the BGG 2-Player T&E game would be a good idea or not, or whether it could be done at all, from a programming standpoint.

Any comments from the crowd?

I agree
I've never played E&T with an actual set of tiles, but I found the 2-player E&T on BGG overly-one-sided. I just assumed real life would be the same, but maybe not, if more disasters were allowed!

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

Extra disaster tiles would suit the more aggressive play styles. Personally I prefer it with two.

What would be nice on the BGG T&E would be to have the English Variant as an option for the game, i.e. no throwing away tiles in defence that cannot possibly help you win.

options are good
Not sure I would use it but it doesn't sound like too serious a change and if it makes the game more enjoyable for someone, so be it laugh.
