I've played five rounds last night and I found it a bit too simple for two players. Will try to gather my thoughts more precicely about it.

- I played a few rounds last night with three and it is a completely different game. I would say that 3 might be a minimum to make this game interesting. It's good at three.Jun 13, 2013
- That's great news! How was it different, would you say?Jun 13, 2013
- It's much more complex. With so many more cards at play and so many more possibilities for adopting, the strategy requires more thought. Should one aim to lose the bidding in order to get the best card on the table or aim to win the bidding to get an 8 or a 9? Interesting choice.
a) Just to be clear: you add as many cards to the center as there are players after each turn as well as the cards that were not adopted, right? With a possibility of 9 players, I can imagine a table that is not long enough to hold all the center cards after a couple of turns, no?
b) I do have one question: can one adopt the card that one bid with? Would that not be a way to transfer one's best card from one's and to one's collection? If so, that would be an additional mechanic to make the bidding phase even more complex.Jun 13, 2013
- Were there too many options, would you say? I'd hate for there to be too much analysis paralysis.Jun 13, 2013
- At three or four, I think not. But at 6 to 9 players, there might very well be.Jun 13, 2013
- Excellent. Good to know. Thanks very much for your help!Jun 13, 2013
