Two of us old guys played a round of Mystic Wood (Avalon Hill Edition) as our last game of week of vacation gaming. Britomart ran away with the Prince before George could even slay the Ox - let alone the Dragon. Two players can be interesting - you certainly do pile up the goodies.

The game appears endless in its odd situations that appear - this game was no different. This time the Horse ended up on the Island. Since I was after the horse, I naturally decided that since there was no path for the horse to run, the horse was caught.

Any other thoughts?

Re:Session Report
You did the proper action: the horse is yours.

The card says, "runs... if possible; otherwise befriends." The horse could not run off the island so it is yours for the taking.

As for the number of odd situations: odd situations are the reason why we play fantasy games!

alfonzos (#39243),

I don't know if I'd ever given this any thought in the past, but it seems to me the Horse can swim faster than you can, so it escapes from the Island (provided there is a path). And I don't think he would actually run inside the Cave. However, I wouldn't care to be dogmatic on either of these points.

I agree - I think if there are valid paths leading off the tile (even though it's the island or cave) the horse will run.

Presuming you are not pulling our leg, "does your bidding" means that it does what you tell it to do, i.e. it goes to the area of your choice.
