What would happen in the following instances:
1. A Polar Bear is bounced to a Floe containing two players. The first player has a Fish, but instead of bouncing the Polar Bear away, moves to an adjacent Floe which contains another Polar Bear. Would this be allowed as they could further bounce the 'new found' Polar Bear away themselves, opening up a multi-ball effect?
My guess would be that this would be allowed, as long as the player moving had a second fish to distract the polar bear on the new ice flow he was moving to (having already used one fish to survive the polar bear that caused him to move in the first place).
2. Would the second player on the first Floe be allowed to follow the previous player. Knowing the other Ice Floe contained a Polar Bear, but safe in the knowledge that the leader has a Fish to feed it? or must the Fish carrying player bounce the new found Polar Bear away before the second player resolves his own situation?
My tendency would be to resolve the first bounced player's move first, so that (s)he deals with the polar bear on the floe (s)he escaped two, before the other polar bear victim starts resolving his move.
3. What if the 'off turn' Fish holding player were to bounce the Polar Bear to another Floe occupied by another player?
Getting messy, but, again, I would say resolve this third player's response to the polar bear before winding back to resolve the second player on the original floe.
I suspect there might be some cyclical issues here - the order of resolution might make a difference between a player having to deal with one or two polar bear attacks, but I've had too many glasses of wine to think about it now
