I love TI 3rd edition, but can't always get together 3 players willing to commit the amount of time it takes to play a game.

Are there any 2 player variants of this game?


There is no official 2-player variant; the game just wasn't designed for it.

But as always, the internet provides. Various fans have proposed two-player rule sets.

The Roland Wood variant is probably the most commonly used, building on earlier suggestions by other players.

(There was another popular version in the "Shattered Expansion", but I can no longer find a live link.)

  • Personally I don't actually recommend 2-player TI; like Cosmic Encounter, it's one of those games where the correct objective of a two-player game is "find a third player". However, some people find it to be a blast; your personal taste may vary as always.

  • IT's worth trying, I don't think I'll get a chance to try it for a wee while though as I'm about to go travelling, and TI is not a travel friendly game. Feb 13 '14 at 11:02
