My group is after few games of Runewars mostly for 4 players. All of us liked the game very much. We just have one issue that seems to be uncommon as I couldn't find anybody with similar one on these boards.
The board setup usually ends with us placing new board. The reason is that it is not possible to setup 4 starting markers 4 hexes from each other (like stated in the rules). Even if we would like to use the 3 hexes between 2 starting markers, it is still not possible.
After several tries, we then pay attention to how we set up the board. We do a lot of "Wait, if you do it we will be unable to setup starting markers again". or "Wait, do not make the mountains point out of the board".
In the rules we see that "in the rare cases where it is not possible to set up the home markers", but for us, for every play we start the set up again about 2 or 3 times before we are able to build a board and only after everybody commits to setting up the board pieces. I can't set up my pieces as I would like to since I have to pay attention to being able to place a home markers. This is especially annoying for the last player and last piece, as he is able to re-set entire map placement if he doesn't like it by just placing this final piece of map in a way it prevents the home markers setup.
I didn't noticed such problems on these forums. Is there something we do wrong here?
