I strongly recommend buying something else though if you want a two-player game. According to the rules, the second player to choose a starting place goes first so that player can put the starting place in front of the other player's and immediately block it with a road. This gives that player a significant advantage and whoever chooses the first starting place will almost always lose.
Mayfair Games are always reliable, and many of us who used to swear by CLUE now have thrown the old Parkers Brothers standby right out the window and now we pledge allegiance to Mayfair's ALIBI game, which is roughly the same idea but fiendishly clever and much more thrilling. It's like CLUE with CSI thrown in. Another worthy game is called ELIXIR, which helps you bide your time waiting for the next HARRY POTTER movie to come out; it's fun, frivolous, involves fairies and makes players do stunts, like Madonna's TRUTH OR DARE, while under the spell of magical herbs, sort of the way the lovers in Shakespeare's MIDSUMMERS' NIGHT DREAM all have to change partners due to Titania and Oberon's wishes. Anyhow my lips were already therefore moist when I heard about LA STRADA, the Italian village industry game from Mayfair, in which you decide how to proceed with building your own business in the land of pasta and vino. It's before the days of motorcars, so you do your peddling out of a horse-drawn buggy, reminding us of Hakim Ali, the Arab peddler who loves the ladies in Rodgers & Hammerstein's classic OKLAHOMA! You are the master of fleets of wagons, and the fate of a vast Italian commercial empire rests on your shoulders. Have you got the 'cogliones' (Italian for, well, you can just imagine) to carry it off?
I have seen grown men cry after bringing their wagon to the fair and coming up empty. And yes, children cheer when they manage to do well on LA STRADA. Don't confuse this game with the popular "road movie" starring Giuletta Masina, the wife of Fellini. Just enjoy it, the way you once enjoyed playing Clue or Uno.
