I've bought the game, haven't played yet.  I assume there are component issues with playing with more than 4 players, but wanted to know exactly what goes wrong if you play with 5 or 6 which is the normal size of my gaming group.

You'd probably see too many ties at the tournaments.  Otherwise it seems doable if you keep track of fans on something since you only get 4 scoreboards.

Why not get a second game and go two games of 3 then have the winners face off and the other 4 play for 3rd?

Mostly because that would entail getting a second game :)

I think it would work fine. It might make for a long game though.

With 6, I was thinking I might run 2 concurrent 3 player games. Same headline/tourney applies to each group - different highlights obviously. Maybe switch group assignments each week to keep it interesting.

But it's rarely an issue in our group... it's rare we have 4 people available to play, let alone 5 or 6.

Sounds like a good way to do it.  We generally have 6 people, and sometimes 1 or 2 can't make it, and sometimes we get 1 or 2 extra.

Have played 5 player, and while it does take a reasonable amount of time to play, the only thing to consider is that you are almost certainly going to cycle the staff upgrade and star player decks. Not a big issue but certainly worth considering. Towards the end, staff upgrades becomes less attractive as the really good picks go.

 

But it was a great laugh. The energy levels were kept up well through out the game, and the final week was a real bun fight. Also you see a lot of highlights which gives people a lot to compete for. We also saw a lot of hghlights change players as injured players left match ups un-attended and then the slot was stolen by someone else. Highly amusing.

 

Provided everyone is enjoying the actual playing of the game, I think it worked perfectly well...

 

Have even put a couple of life point trackers from an old CCG starter kit in to help record Fans with more than 4 players.
