### Re: [Limited Edition] Easter Egg Hunt Map

it really helps in thinking about playing a map and actually playing it to know the starting positions available, the number of starting positions, and the value of the neutrals.

This is most easily accomplished by displaying a neutral map. Then stating the number of starting regions, and where they might randomly appear, and any limitations on their randomess.

Thank you,

wow, these behind the scenes maps are really awful. and i'm not talking about the shitty graphics. the gameplay is just plain stupid or completely unbalanced.

because of the way this map is designed the drop will be crucial.
there are 10 possible starting locations in the 5 green neighbourhoods.
this means that regardless of game type some people might get a drop together with another person in the same neighbourhood, while others will be alone.
because the neutral barriers between neighbourhoods are too big for the first rounds, this means that whoever is alone can get a bonus of 19 in 3-5 rounds (depending on dice) while the others will battle each other and waste troops.
in a 3p game if one guy is alone he's the winner cause even if the others don't fight each other, they still hold a smaller bonus.

Has anyone ever attacked the Easter Bunny? I'm holding the card in a nuke game, and I still don't see the appeal.

Only did it the once, again in a nuke game. Only worth it if you can move forward large troop numbers though.

I think DiM said it best.

Or typed it best. Whatever.

Thanks for developing the map, anyway...it's a nice concept, and nobody has to play it, after all.

### Re: [Limited Edition] Easter Egg Hunt Map

please can some one explain why it says
"EASTER BUNNY CAN BOMBARD ANY HOUSE WITH HIS EGGS"
but when you take the bunny you can only hit houses NO EGGS

His = Easter Bunny's Eggs...not actual eggs

What does that mean you either can or can't wording needs to be changed

### Re: [Limited Edition] Easter Egg Hunt Map

I think they wrote it that way because "the easter bunny is a violent felon and bombards houses by throwing bricks through the windows" isn't politically-correct. Or correct in any other way.

But really, the sentence on the map can be amended even without access to the psd/xcf/whatever file.

More like "the Easter bunny likes to egg people's houses" but yours works too.

It's not saying you can bombard eggs. It's saying that the Easter Bunny throws eggs at the houses. He uses the eggs he has to bombard houses. It's not confusing to me.

does it cool but can read both ways which can lead to costly confusion.
It's not confusing to me.

that's because your special you know that.

also this does add to the confusion. so am i reading it right or are you

Now I see the confusion. Edited the post for clarity. I think the map is fine for the statement though.

Maybe making the map a little Smaller?

How would making the map smaller fix that confusion?

### Re: [Limited Edition] Easter Egg Hunt Map

I assume that the Easter bunny has unlimited eggs because he lays them(because of course all rabbits lay eggs... duh!) and uses them as his weapon to egg the houses he bombards. The eggs he left behind are finders keepers and are up for grabs and are no longer his. BTW where did this whole bunnies and eggs thing start anyway? That has got to confuse children all over the world! I know it did for me and I will never forget that!
