After reading through the core and expansions' rules a few times, I wonder if Bee Stings might not be a bit overly punishing. Snake bites let you get rid of them automatically, but you can't get rid of stings unless you land on a treasure space -- and since treasure spaces don't count as obstacles, that means you have to time things perfectly just to get rid of one sting. Am I missing something?

The current rule is "land on", not "end your turn on". But, in any case, we're still tweaking the expansion rules quite a bit anyway, so getting that balance right is something we're actively working on.

Oh, really? You might want to rephrase that as "land on or pass over," because that isn't how I interpreted it at all.

Now that the map has rivers, could you test getting rid of stings by crossing rivers?

Everybody knows that's how you escape from bees.
