My wife and I play a lot of 2 player games and I, personally, am getting tired of the same occupations. Is there anything wrong with throwing in the 3+ or just using the 4+ occupations instead?

A few of them will reference action cards that aren't in the 2p game. Some will clearly only have decent use with more people.

I'm sure plenty of them would be fine, though.

You might also consider picking up one or more of the expansion decks and/or the "Farmers..." expansion.

+1 to this
The Gamers Deck (G-deck) is one of the best and tends to be readily available and a good price.

We have never had a problem doing this. Sometimes you'll draw a card that obviously won't work, but that's easy enough to redraw for.

It's fine, but there are a few cards that are probably either too good or too terrible. Stonecutter, for example, I think would probably be too strong in 2er.

I don't play many 2er games, but we use most 4+ cards in our 3er games. We just talk about them and throw out the ones that are problematic.

I'd go through the cards first and take out the ones you think are unsuitable for 2p gaming. Easy peasy.

Thanks for all the suggestions, folks. I'll talk about it with the missus and maybe try to throw in a few of the other decks.
