I find the hex designs and rules about mountains somewhat confusing. It looks as if you never will need to cross a mountain when expanding from one hex to another; that is, the only time you ever would cross a mountain is when you are expanding from one space on a hex to another space on the same hex. Is that right?
For the most part that is correct, although if memory serves one of the tiles does have a mountain across the edge between the hexes.
Having to cross mountains becomes more improtant later in teh game as space gets to be a premium as tribes spread across the board.
