A simple question, but not one I could find a clear answer for in the instruction manual...

If I am playing a two player game do the second player and I only use two colors and all of the others stay where they are on the bottom level? Or can each player play two colors?

thanks

There are some rulestranslations on the gamepage. For 2p:

Quote:
Each player chooses two colors. Before each turn they may choose one of their two colors. When scoring, players score the total of their two colors. The game is otherwise identical to the game with 4.

The game really isn't that great with less than four players, so my first suggestion would be to find two more people

For two players you can certainly each play two colors. With three players I would suggest removing a color from play.

We did a 3p game a few weeks ago. Everybody had to use the forth color before taking their own; not a bad game for 3.

Interesting idea - though I'm not sure it ends up being much different from not using it at all, since all the player colors will be the ones left stranded anyway - certainly on the lower levels, anyway.

Perhaps something like the following:

You may move either your own color or any blue piece on your turn. You can only pass to place the next level if you cannot move either.
Your first move onto a new level must be a blue piece, if possible.

This will likely result in two blues stranded on the bottom, leaving three to still be moved in the next round - thus keeping things tight for all players through the first two rounds.

Not an idea; it's the rule for 3p. Additon to that rule was: 1 piece of the neutral color has to stay on every level.

And of course 4player is best.
