The more the merrier with this one, IMO. The game is already perilously close to having not enough going on. If you don't have enough players competing for the different expeditions this one falls into being a bore.

I have played one four player game, one five player game, and one six player game (with 5 fifth graders). I enjoyed the five and six player games the most, but would gladly play with four or even three.

I don't think the game as published works well with 3, because there are 18 auctions in the first round, and no player can win more than 6, so at the end some players are eliminated from the bidding even if they have money left, which creates an undesirable dynamic at the end. You could probably fix this with some tweaking. Otherwise I think the game should be reserved for 4-6.
