You definitely have to have them labeled as the candies, that's just perfect.

I have updated the map and gameplay.

As always all comments and suggestions are welcome.

I would love for the foundry staff to move this to drafts if they believe it worthy of continuing development.

Thanx

I think it would be a splendid addition to the maps. :) Small objective map! :)
Certainly good for the Holiday/Fun Maps Section, whether it's dragged out in august in or February. It's a theme that can be expanded on and something we don't have now.
I think however, the objective is too quick and easy...perhaps
"Hold everyones Purple heart plus true love would be better"
I also think that everyone's heart could be coloured something apart from purple.
Purple is traditionally respected as "Valour" i believe.
I think this is a brilliant start. Good work. Nice to see. :)

Great idea to revisit this map structure for regular holidays - not sure this theme will be all that popular though.

How about something to do with summer? Conquer the beach? Maybe not- hmm :?:

Summer - fireworks display or fireflys
Halloween - pumpkin patch or trick-or-treaters
Thanksgiving - dinner table
XMas - XMas tree or outdoor light display
Easter - Easter Egg hunt or roll or candy basket

just a couple spitballs ideas for the holidays if the basic St. Patty's Day map picks becomes the design for any holiday tradition.
