Here is my entry for the first map contest (thus be-linked). The site is running a bit slowly for me, so I apologize in advance if no one can play this thing right now, but I assure you that the file works. . . . You are Lord Bratwurstford. You are enjoying a relaxing afternoon in the sprawling gardens of your estate, chewing out your dog boy in the gazebo. You are delving into a particularly scathing review of his activities when the boy, who nonetheless has good eyesight, spots lumbering shapes within the garden. The manorhouse is locked, but you should be able to reach a side door and raise enough noise to summon help. The question becomes: how? Will you traverse the maze-like gardens on your own, trusting your dog boy to shout eagle-eyed guidance? Or will the two of you make a break for it, distracting and deflecting the intruding beasts between you? Teamwork was never your strength . . . In this single-player map, your goal is to get to the Victory Squares near the manor's side door. None of the enemies can enter this area: their only goal is to kill both humans. You have masses of Move cards if you play Raise The Alarm correctly, so this should be easy, right? Right? The player has a three-Victory-Point requirement to encourage you not to fight the enemies. If you can avoid that, then please consider dropping it to 1 VP before playing: it's much more satisfying if you get to a Victory Square and win instantly (instead of waiting three turns). The enemy has the same requirement just in case you feel like changing your party around. Beyond that, I'm glad to say that I have the difficulty about balanced. Each monster provides a unique challenge (some harder than others) and appears in an order that shouldn't be TOO frustrating. Also, the art in this game is beautiful, and I'm glad to have the opportunity to use the detail in my "decorations." And a final note: technically, you could stall forever in the gazebo and make a stalemate, but that's no fun now is it? Get out there and RUN! SUPER-SECRET "HARD MODE" CHALLENGE: On your way, you should pay your respects at the grave of your dear departed Mum. Can you visit her and still make it back to the house?
