I would say don't buy it for only 3 players.

I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

As I understand it, the game is best for 5-6 people, and most people seem to recommend 6 players. I have to agree that this game does not seem like a good choice if you're primarily going to play with 3 people.

We've played with 3 recently.
I can say that it works (maybe better than 4) and is worth to try but not worth to buy this game only for that.

What interests me about this is that on the listing it is best for 6 but recommended with 3+, yet all the comments I've seen say it's not good with less than 5. I've only played with 6. I hope it is at least very good with 3-4.

It is still a lot of fun with less than 5, but isn't the full experience. Better with three than four.

It is recommended but it is quite expensive so I can tell that it is to much to buy it only for 3 players.

I like the game with three players, but you dont see alliances or back-stabs as everyone is out for themselves most of the game.

Then you miss out on why this Is good game. It's not the same if you know what to expect out of the other players.
