Does this game work well on two players?
Or is it really a four player game being shoe-horned to fit other player counts as well?
It actually plays really well with 2, 3 or 4 players.
With 2 players, each player controls a side, either good or evil. So if you and I were playing, you might have control of the Humans and the Dwarves.
It is more taxing on the brain to play 2 sides at once and I would recommend new players try to play just 1 while they learn Warparty.
The upside of playing an entire side is that it is much easier for you to coordinate armies, strategies, have your heroes join forces to explore dungeons together. All of that is easier to do.
Please feel free to ask any other questions and thank you very much for your consideration.
