In 2-player games, place the Midshipman tile so it covers the second and third spaces on the island. Instead of loot tokens matching the player count, there are 3 loot tokens available each day.
Players place their characters on the island respective to the Midshipman’s rank (20.5). If your character is the only character ranked 20 or less, you must place it on the space directly to the left of the Midshipman. At dusk, if your character is directly to the left of Midshipman, your opponent removes a loot token from the current day immediately before you gain a loot token. The removed token is put back in the bag with no other effect. The Midshipman counts as a character, but it can never be discarded and cannot gain/give anything.
