Can this be played with only two people, or do the bidding methods involved make it strictly a 3+ player game?

Cheers.

Definitely 3-6 players only. It's pointless with only two. It barely gets by with three players - the more the merrier with this game!

I agree exactly.

We played with 3 players, and while fun - it would definitely get better with more.

With 3 people, one location is closed down and you gain another character. The Little Girl (worth 1 point). She has no powwers or anything. She just takes up space, basically.

The thing with the little girl is ... well, she's a little girl!

You *can't* let her die!!

It's a moralistic thing. Doesn't matter that she's only worth a point.

(And this is someone who used to use the "Newt on a stick" tactic in the old Aliens boardgame!)

We're talking about a game based on voting. How COULD it be interesting with two players? WHY would you want to play it with only two? If you want a zombie gaming experience for two, it's out there, but this is clearly not that game.

I couldn't imagine how this could be done with 2 people. Wouldn't every vote be a tie? It suffers with 3 or 4, in my opinion. The more people you have playing the more alliances and backstabbing occur, which truely seems to be the heart of the game.
