Lewis & Clark
Sometimes I remember I have a game on my shelf that I totally love, and I can’t remember why it hasn’t gotten played more. Lewis & Clark is definitely one of those games. Lots of neat choices, engine building, modest but not face-stabby interaction. Complex enough that relearning the rules was kind of a chore, but whatever, kid is off to the grandparents and we’re both fighting head colds.
I don’t think I’ve ever played it as just a 2p but it scaled quite well. There are some character cards that are obviously better depending on the number of players, but easy enough, just don’t buy those. Adding it to my middling-challenging-not-filler list, a tough sweet spot that my wife really does not stray from much.

Bonus: it scales well to “1” as well. The loneliest number
Bonus #2/3: it has delightful art and a dog called Seaman.
I giggled every time Karen sent Seaman off to do something.
A game where you send your seaman to do errands seems potentially great
“Your Seaman really gets around!”
“Oh hey, it’s Seaman again. That was quick.”
“Seaman is your favorite, isn’t it?”
Seaman is great! #9yo
Clint Shulenski, I tried solo player only once. Never again. I got so angry at the NPC that I had to just quietly put the game away before I rage flipped anything.
I have never won solo
What! You’re sending Seaman out for meat? Always make me laugh more than Mrs R. #mildspousaldisapproval
Clint Shulenski sounds like a weak Seaman problem.
Have you tried the dice game version?
I have not!
Want to play
Paul Beakley Very different (obviously). Best dice game I played
