How do you deal with it? We had no ranged weapons, our Survivors didn't know how to run. Our only option was to throw ourselves at the Lion until we all died. When you attack it, it gets to attack back, and first, before your attack, with FOUR speed at level 1. So of course we got knocked down, which canceled the original attack, or outright killed, until we got wiped out. So what could we have done?

You need bone darts... it's really priority 1 against the lion. Otherwise it's a carnage.
Interesting enough, once you have a decent ranged weapon, it's very easy to abuse Ground Fighting. I had the hunt event that sets this mood in place before the showdown, then I had all the time in the world to collect resources from random terrain and to position my survivors for an alpha attack. It's just a matter o hitting and damaging with the ranged weapon in your first attack and then closing in.

Yep there's a quick lesson for you that you really need a bow or spear (or darts) as soon as you can. As jffalaschi said, once you do have something then ground fighting is a really nice card to have come up!

If you notice, you start with 4 cards that defeat ground fighting. The founding stone can be thrown from anywhere on the board, automatically hits, and automatically crits. This is a surefire way of removing ground fighting. Assuming of course you don't hit the impervious mane or the trap. However, you do have 4 of them just in case. Better than everyone dying.

As others have said, you need a Ranged weapon of some sort. Bone Darts, Cat Gut Bow and/or Founding Stone all work fine against it. The plus side of getting Ground Fighting out is that you get all the time in the world to re-position your survivors and to gather resources.

Absolutely This! We love ground fighting. It is probably our favorite hunt card besides the baby lion. It give us time to use our lion's eye circlet, frenzy drinks, rawhide headband and gather any environment cards. Then we set up around the lion, slap him with something like a spear or ranged weapon and proceed to trounce him usually.

I hated ground fighting in my first proper hunt.

The cards were harsh to me. I'm only got one boken in all 8 cards.

Decided to build a bone sword for my survivor who threw their stone in the prologue. So no innovations, no bone darts.

First hunt card, lion starts with ground fighting in play.

Had to burn a second founding stone that fight.

Now my party always leaves home with either a bow or reach weapons.
