Which scenarios seem to strike the best balance between luck and skill, between tactical and strategic challenge, between difficulty and fairness? I started a thread here a while back about the cannibal scenario, and the consensus seemed to be that it required some significant strokes of luck, particularly if you have a full compliment of four players.

On the other hand, the first scenario is considered pretty straightforward since the major concern is just getting a roof over your head.

Not sure about most, but will say that #2 would NOT qualify for this. Heck, just did a 3-person run yesterday that ended before a single round happened. Two plains came out and were almost immediately fogged, making the bell impossible to build, making the fog unclearable. The final plains had a tiki on it, meaning it would come out with fog already on it.

It sounds like you (as many others before you have also done) missed the rule that allows you to place fog on island spaces that you have not yet explored. This seemingly simple change takes the scenario from nearly impossible with bad card draw to one of the easiest in the bunch.

The cake bell is a lie!

The scenario becomes a lot easier if you concentrate on your main objective.

This is true. If anything #2 is unbalanced leaning toward the easy side.
