1) Move them as far as they can go legally. Don't put 5 in the same space.
Makes sense, I did it like this. I just felt that somehow it happened very often and the chapter was overall easy.
2) Pretty sure it can't land on any figures. Not sure what you mean by eventually. When you cut the leaf free it just lands, right? You roll and then move it that many spaces and put the leaf down. I don't think it keeps floating for a couple rounds and eventually lands.
Yeah, that's what I meant by eventually: after cutting and moving (and slowly gliding) Anyway, I guess you can still choose an minion entry space with minions on it but you cannot land the leaf there (just like with the froglodytes in my first question).
Thank you for your help on this!
