The BGG entries for PR and the PR expansion claim 2 players, but the box and the rules say otherwise. Are the BGG entries wrong? Is there some widely used 2-player variant I'm missing?

The 2 player variant is available from this site and from Alea. Plus, some clever geeks have come up with different 2 player variants.

The pr-game.net game site allows you to play 2 player as well, according to the official Alea variant. It's a great way to intro the game to another person, I think.

The Alea variant plays very well and is capable of giving the same feel of a 'full scale' game of PR.

Thanks.

I terms of the BGG database though, what's in the box isn't 2 player, so the entry should be corrected, right?

Yes... you're right, that should be corrected.

Actually, the Tilsit (french) edition of PR shows 2/5 players because the official 2p alea variant is included in the french version. So, the BGG entry is ok.

I find it plays really well with 2 with this variant.

My Dutch version is officially for 2 players also, there is a special 2 player section at the end of the rules, and the 2 players are also mentioned earlier in the rules.

It used to be 3-5 on the gamepage. I submitted a correction to make it 2-5 (which it does say on the Dutch box) and it was accepted.

Is this another case (like Carcassonne) where EU versions get updatet while the the US lags behind?

The US & German version were earlier; the Dutch edition was late and by then you can easily add a 2player variant in the rules. Probably the first reprint of PR the same thing will happen in the US / Germany / ...
