This is a solid game. My group has always played with four or more but I'd try it with less.
So if this game is good even with two players, is it play-with-your-gf good? And how good? Like, Lost Cities good, in that respect? Or Dominion good (works with two players but damned if most women want to play it... 'cept maybe Elektra.)
Play games. Don't be a gamer.
I had fun playing this as well. My only criticism of the game is that it would have been nice to have at least a small summary character sheet to refer to. We spent quite a bit of time looking up all the characters in the rulebook when picking a character card. Mainly it was trying to deduce what other players picked so we could pick one. Maybe we were a little to competitive and we should just pick a character and see how it all plays out. I am sure that eventually when the players become familiar with the characters we will no longer be looking up characters in the rules or have use for a sheet. But it would be a nice add in for new players to quickly refer to.
