Any idea if this would work for only 2 players?
And if not, why?

Greets and thanks,

It does not work with 2 players, mostly because the first player gets such a huge advantage. The first player to kick in an attack card will win. The reason this doesn't work on 3 players is that the game relies the typical tripod balance – when player A attacks player B, player C will benefit the most, as he is a) undisturbed by the attack and b) didn't spend his action on attacking. So C can easily retaliate on A to prevent him from gaining too much ground. In the meantime B can build up again. And so on.

It it's just one person attacking the other, the balance will tip too much in favour of the attacker.
