Technically yes, but it's really not much fun with two people. The main tenet of the game is frantically figuring out where all the tools you need are to fix your malfunctioning spaceship, but with only two players, if it's not in your hand then you know that it is in the other player's hand, which takes away a lot of the fun.
We play-tested this game A LOT, and this is what we found:
For the main game, the player count is 3-6 players.
Adding the expansion allows for up to 9 players, but can accommodate 12+ (although this starts to become a frantic mess unless ALL players are familiar with the game.)
Multiple expansions can be added to a single game to potentially accommodate more people, but we have not thoroughly play-tested 2 expansions. Our experience during limited play-testing of multiple expansions is that if everyone knows how to play, it's awesome with two expansions!
Yep! A 5 minute timer is included with the main game, but not with the expansion. There will also be a space-tastic online timer available which will help enhance gameplay and ensure elevated heart rates.
