I know I'm a bit late to the game, but I played my first two games of Android this weekend! It was pretty much everything I had hoped it would be. Both games were 4 players (my wife, two friends, and myself) and everyone seemed to love the game. I know there will be plenty of plays for my group in the future.

I really hope taht this game gets a bit of a jumpstart again from the new Android games coming out. I know one of the friends I played with is talking of buying it himself.

It is an extremely well-made game, and we can only hope it gets a boost with the new releases in this universe.

One last tour here on the Death Star and I can retire. What was that noise?!

All that remains is for the four of you to move to Livermore, CA and we can get five player games organized!

Both the games I've played so far have been 4 player. My friends are trying to get me to setup another Android Game night already.

This game is awesome but it never comes out as much as I like (much to the sadness of my gf and I). A quick hint, when introducing new players keeping the the game a two player game seems to work wonders for getting the mechanic across.

We simply use the variant with three suspects when playing with two - do you use any others?

It's often suggested to use four suspects with two, that way it's harder to determine which suspect the other player is rooting for (or some such rationale).

I've been reading mountains of reviews and opinions on Android over the last several months in anticipation of my first game and, good or bad, that has been the consensus here on the geek.

Yes, we play it as 2 players with setup for three (four suspects and 6 leads) and than simply remove one detective. It works brilliant, only "bug" we found is in combination Raymond vs. Caprice, as Raymond ignore suspects easily due to his focus on conspiracy and Caprice cannot use her powerful cards then... But any other combination seemed excellent.

And yeah, after Descent and Android I definitely love Wilson's style of game-design. Hope he will make more these games in the future!!!
