Dwarf can be played with up to five players by playing with two copies of the game. Setup is the same as normal, except that you make two 'Mountain' draw piles - one for each grid of nine locations. Players can place workers across either grid, and enemies in either grid affect all players, regardless of which grid they place their workers on.
Each copy of Dwarf ships with 12 meeples. These are in three different colours, with two different shapes in each colour. To play with more than three players, we suggest each player takes meeples of one shape and colour. Therefore two players may have workers in the same colour but they will be in a different shape. To further differentiate workers, players can also choose to have one player place their workers standing and one placing them recumbent.
