“Proper Placement of Traps = Double Whammy!”

In Cross Hares, each player controls one character; each with its own special items and abilities.

Kiryu, the Hunter, has the ability to lay traps for the other players along the path. If you’re playing the hunter and it’s time to lay a trap, take a close look at where you lay it.

One basic concepts in Cross Hares is that when a character moves along the path, the various spaces they land on will only affect the player landing on them if they moved DURING THEIR OWN TURN (yes, it is possible to move on another player’s turn).

This means that a trap, when landed on, will only affect the player landing on it ON THEIR TURN, but it also means that if that trap sends them backwards (and they can) that any other space they land on as a result of the trap will also affect them.

So, you could place a trap such that a player landing on it would go backwards and land on a bad space, or even land on another trap which you had laid down.

Double Whammy!

“Stack the Event Deck ”

One of the things which some folks have commented on about the game is the way the Event card mechanic currently functions could result in the same Event being triggered multiple times. If this Event happens to be Bomb Blast which send everyone back a ton of spaces, it can cause the game to be seriously extended.

We did try and address this in the rulebook (although, apparently this point was not made in large enough type font…lol).

There is an alternate way to ‘create’ the Event deck at the start of each game. It works like this:

Each player selects two Event cards to be included in the Event deck. This will result in an Event deck which is between 4 (for a two player game) and 8 (for a full four player game) cards, and will mean that at least 3 (more if you have less than a full game) of the 11 Event cards will be excluded.

If you don’t like certain Events, don’t choose to include them.

Of course, if someone opts to include Bomb Blast or some other harsh Event card, I’d say they just drew a large target on their head for everyone else’s anger…

Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
