How many players would you recommend for a game?
I have never played an rpg like this and i would like to try one, so just some helpful advice for a newbie.

You want a minimum of three for a game like this. Four or five would be ideal. Plus you as mother of course.

I'd actually advocate closer to 3/4. Horror is more threatening when you haven't got loads of people to provide 'comfort'. Also fewer players makes it more likely you'll get through the scenario without someone breaking immersion.

A agree that three or four is probably the optimum here.

3-5 players ... noting that the clear roles on ship need at least 3...
