Great game in my opinion but you need the players for it.
The one possibility for a two player game might be to have each player control two colors independently, and then score them separately at the end. Throw out the higher score for each player. Then the player whose lower score was highest wins.
That should work well, but I haven't tried it. Obviously you should have the two teams you control cooperate as much as possible. But if Vikings from your two teams are in the same location they would still have to fight. The most likely problem would arise from selecting cards for battles between your two teams. I wouldn't try this two player variant with a new player.
I would suggest playing this game with more people if at all possible!
