Im sorry if this was asked before, couldnt seem to find it.

Is there any reason why there could not be more than 2 players?
One player playing the demon,
One the Hero
The rest playing the convicts?

Im interested in this game.
Usually it will be 2 players playing, but my common group includes up to 6.
If 1 could be the demon, 1 the hero, and then 1 each the convicts this would be a definite buy.

Thanks

It would certainly be possible to play as you've suggested. There would be a couple of mechanical quirks to deal with (mainly: initiative dice and turn ordering), but nothing that a group of six gamers couldn't sort out with a bit of common sense.

The main argument I would offer against it would simply be quality of experience. Controlling a single human figure in this game would be boring, and wouldn't make for a very enjoyable game.

Claustrophobia is one of the best two-player games out there, but it really is designed for just two people. Something like Descent or Super Dungeon Explore might be a more suitable "team of heroes vs evil overlord" game when there's more than two of you around.

Thanks for the reply.
Ive looked at Super Dungeon Explore.
Thats on my possible list.
Reason I havent gone that route is I understand through the rumor mill that its due out soon for a kickstarter reprint?

Can you shed any light on that?

Reprint: yes. Kickstarter? Not that I'm aware of.

More info in the SDE forums, specifically, this thread. Also, be warned: Claustrophobia comes with pre-assembled, pre-painted miniatures. The SDE miniatures require assembly, and are unpainted.
