Critters Crossing
I like it. Looks like a good abstract strategy game for kids, and the art for the critters is great. I'm curious to know how balanced it is, because just looking at the starting positions and thinking through the first few moves, it seems like player 1 is at a huge disadvantage, especially compared to player 4. I haven't played it yet, so maybe I am missing something there.

Also, do you have any plans to introduce special movement rules for the different critters? Seems natural to have the differences among animals influence more than just bonus moves for matching.

Thanks!

I played a few 3 player games with my girls, where I was the first player. I was surprised when I won one and came in second in another. The bonus moves help propel the game. The first game by the way was won by my 9 year as the second player.

As for special movement rules for the different critters, sounds like a cool idea, will give it some thought.
