What're you looking at!
I noticed that there is what appears to be a section for two-player rules in the German rules for this game, but no such section in the English rules when I checked on the Numbskull Games website.
Does anyone know if there are any differences, or have a translation?
From the 2-player GC rules: For a 2-player game, there is no Quest (as there isn't one on the board); and the victory conditions are a little different.
South moves first with 10 moves. After that, North follows with 20 moves to end the 1st Round. In subsequent rounds, each player gets 20 moves. Movement costs and restrictions are, as far as I can see, the same in the 4-player game.
1. Occupy all 5 spaces of the opponent's castle
2. Capture opponent's last Land piece
3. Move a siege engine into any of the opponent's castle spaces.
If 10 consecutive Rounds are played without a capture, the game ends and winner is determined as follows:
1. Player occupying the most opposing castle spaces
2. If #1 is a tie, player who captures the most pieces and vessels" wins
Edit: Also, of course, the 2-player board is smaller/more compact than the 4-player. I'm not sure playing the 4-player map with only 2 would work. You can see the various maps here: at Numbskull's webstore.
