One does not simply surf into Mordor!
I have read through the FAQ's. I game a bunch and have for years. There are just a few things I am having a hard time getting my head around. For instance... there is nothing in this scenario that states you have to get to the 3rd level but at turn 6 of the comet track it states to spawn the boss on the 3rd level the farthest tile from the 3rd level start tile. What if you don't find rope and make it to the 3rd level... where do you spawn him?
Wait... I think I got it. The entrance to level 3 is laid out in setup so even if we are not down to that level... he would spawn on this tile and move freely up to the second level... correct? Might the strategy me to get to the 3rd level to try and have more attempts (space) to kill him?
