I'm running a series of long tests at work, so I thought I'd fill in this page with a rough translation of [the French list of two-player variants]. Note that what is defined as the official Alea variant - variant A - is not quite the official Alea variant. They suggest that, starting with Governer, each player takes 3 roles, leaving none unselected. It's generally agreed that this is a pants idea.

Notes:
Variant A is (roughly) the official Alea variant.
Variant B is by Tom Lehmann, published on BoardGameGeek
Variant C is a mix of A and B.
Variant D is by Joe Casadonte, publshed on BoardGameGeek. Each player has 2 boards.

Additional Rules (Variants A, B and C):
The Governor starts by choosing a role and playing it as normal.
Then, the other player does the same.
Finally, the Governor chooses a second role, and plays it as normal.
The unchosen roles get a doubloon, the Governorship passes, and the game continues.
All other standard rules apply.

Additional Rules (Variant D):
Each player takes 2 colony boards. Turn order is Player 1 Board A; Player 2 Board A; Player 1 Board B; Player 2 Board B.
Play as the 4-player game.

Scoring Variant D
Score each board separately. There are 3 possible ways to determine the winner:
