In order to get a second "free" ticket you can add an additional fee for guests that is $0.00. Keep in mind though that there is no way to limit someone to only choosing 1 of these. So if, for example, I am registering with 2 guests, I could potentially add in both guests as free.
The only other option, seems like it might be what you had set up before with having 1 registrant & allow 1 free guests, then use the Items for Sale for people to add additional guests to the event.
