Why has the easter map been changed to two houses as start? It made it way more influenced by dice and tactic is a lot less involved now.

It was designed to begin with a max of 2 houses, however this aspect was left out of the XML at the beginning. It has now been added to even out the gameplay for 1v1 games. Originally the person who went first had a huge advantage with 4 houses and bonuses built up quite quickly, usually in favor of the player who took the first turn, it relied much more on dice than strategy with 4 houses as opposed to the 2 that you start with now in 1v1 games.

Does anyone know why the Barbecue and Deck Chairs start as neutral 3's instead of 2's like most other territories (aside from the burrows and striped eggs)?

My guess would be because they have direct access to the rainbow egg, while the other backyard territories don't.

Exactly. This way everyone has the same number of troops to go through to get a rainbow egg.

For the egg decor contest, where will the vote take place? Will a poll be added to this thread with all of the images, or will you be making a thread in GD? If mine wins, there will be a tournament with 6 months free premium! :D

Thanks, I missed that connection. Of course, taking 2, 2, and 4 is different from taking 3 and 5, but I guess it is close. Is that also the reason for the one way attacks?

I'm not too sure about the one-way attacks. We'd have to get Sam to answer that one.
