I want to get this game mainly as a 2 player game, but after reading the rules I'm not sure. It seems like it's best with 3 or 4 and the 2 player variant doesn't seem to work as well as the "regular" game (I didn't like the idea of each player controlling 2 colors and mixing them together). What do you think?
I play this with my girlfriend all the time and it works magnificently as a 2p game. Both colors work together as opposed to singularly, so instead of thinking of it like playing two colors, you're both actually playing one color, just using two colors to do it. I love it 2p though.
I very much enjoy and recommend playing Marrakech with two players. Play is strategic, as you can more easily anticipate where "Assam" might be located on the board on your next turn, compared to playing with 3 or 4. There is minimal time waiting between turns with just two.
