I need clarification regarding the first 6 lava tiles.
According to the rules, the first lava tile is put on the first lava square. Then you do it again until there are 6 tiles on the board.
1) if the second tile that I draw is the same as the first one, do I get to put it next to the first tile?
2) why do we need 6 lava tiles to trigger the second phase of the game?
2. Because those are the rules.
This is a GREAT game. I actually played it yesterday.
