Hang on a sec while I find my strike-anywhere matches. Add a little sparkle.

I suppose I should specify safety matches?

Great little game! I had a lot of fun with my son during the first play. Only a few questions arose:
- On heroes turn, can you choose which one to move first? Can you move them in any order? We assumed yes as it is not stated otherwise.
- When flicking, can a Hero push another Hero? As before, we played as it was allowed.
- When there are two or more Bones in the Cave, do they all flick the matchstick every cavemaster turn? We did it

Hey, thanks so much for trying it out!

All of your assumptions are correct.

Today I learned that it is clumsily impossible for me to football flick less than about six inches. How against the spirit of the game is it to print the map on 11" x 17" paper? whistle


just kidding, of course, but this game is amazingly fun! I sort of want to think up a travel version on cardboard or hard plastic


edit: Is there a portion of sentence missing from the rule "Once a Hero stops moving, if it’s over an obstacle, the obstacle activates. If they overlap two or more obstacles, " ...?

I mean, nothing's stopping you from printing out several copies of the board and taping them together.

I'm glad you liked it! You could probably do the travel version with different sized disk magnets and a magnetic white board. You'd need to come up with an alternative to the matchstick stuff, could just use a ruler I guess.

And you were right about the error, thanks for catching it!
