I have played it two player. It works fine, but there are much better ways to spend your two player game time. Like Techno Bowl.

LE of Warriors of Middle-earth came out of nowhere, and at a very inopportune time.

I've played 2p CWs a few times...it works, but you have to block off some areas or else there's too much map. It doesn't officially support 2, I don't think. It's great with 3 though, if you can conscript a third.

Like Mark said, I'd just be inclined to do something else with only 2.

Now that you mention it, I do recall that each of us ran two factions. Which kind of sucks since you basically choose one to be your "winner" and the other just tries to facilitate that.

At the risk of further dilution, the CW Omega Rulebook does contain revised 2p rules. I haven't read them, but the PDF version is available on PG's website. My guess is it's still not great; a lot of the fun is the multiplayer interactions.

That's what I was thinking. Thanks, peeps. This one will stay on my "Play it at a convention someday" list.

I've been bad.

I'm in for $200 on CW to get the base game plus one expansion. My friend has the game, but moving it is such a pain in the ass, so having another copy of it in our group will mean it gets played more just so we can trade off who has to transport it.

However... I'm starting to think I'm going to grab the base game from Miniature Market once it gets restocked and use my $200 to get the $149 pledge + one more faction. (and YES, Michael and Charlie, I'll be tossing another $15 on top for High Priests.)

I backed the Argent upgrade pack, it's one of my favorite games and the upgraded mages are worth it for me.

I also backed the "Deluxified" Crusaders: Thy Will Be Done. The game looks like it's fun, but because the TMG Deluxe games can be always be flipped for their value + 50%, i'll either get a good game, or make my money back and then some, or be able to trade for something else of value.

A friend talked me into backing the VPG Chariot racing game. The Kickstarter was unsuccessful but they're still going to release it.

An interesting social commentary game I came across after dropping more money on another Bones campaign.

Arranged!

This is one of those few projects I will consider backing because of the subject matter and just to get the game out there in the world.

I went in for the Argent upgrade pack and, more importantly, the expansions. My game didn't need more but, dammit, it needed more.

I just got my ship notification for Massive Darkness.

Couldn't be less enthusiastic.

Anyone miss it and want it?

I have the core, 3D doors and bridges, 3D pillars and chests, and smoked dice.

So glad I sold my $125 pledge for $350.

I have yet to get my ship notice, but I'm still looking forward to playing it.
