Wild Animals

For rules questions

Wild Animals

Postby Raedwulf » Thu Jan 19, 2017 10:02 am

When the Wild Animals rule applies an animal is placed in any unoccupied dangerous terrain when the token is drawn. However there is only one token and there can be multiple unoccupied terrain zones. Does this mean that multiple lion or gorilla models are required? I don't believe so as the token is returned to the bag according to the rules "when the animal is killed" (singular, not plural - "when all animals are killed"). This then raises the question how do you choose which terrain piece do you choose for the single animal given more than one unoccupied piece?

The token stays out until the animal is killed.
The player drawing the token decides which terrain piece to put the animal in; usually near one of his opponent's groups, preferably one with stress on it.

Thanks for that. It makes sense that the player drawing the token gets to choose.

Actually It makes more sense to me that the player drawing the animal token doesn't get to place the beast. After all they are the ones who have suffered the fatigue and should therefore suffer the consequences. May think about houseruling this.

I wonder if there is actually a misprint/translation in the rules.
It makes more sense to me that the animal is placed in a dangerous terrain zone that IS occupied by a group, rather than NOT occupied by a group. If there is more than 1 such area then put it in the one most recently occupied by a group (or select randomly).
Thats certainly how I will play tomorrow when we have our first game....

The rules make perfect sense as they are; the animal is placed by whoever draws the token - obviously to maximise the chance it will attack the other side.
If they are allowed to place it in occupied terrain, then that is guaranteed to happen, so that's a massive bonus for whoever draws the token.
The current system means there is a chance the animal will attack whoever you want it to - but it is not a sure thing, and it may not happen right away.
I suggest you try it as written; the rules work fine as they are.
