What we tried:
- Bow costs 2
- New equipment art
It's only one play with 3 players, but I think it worked well. The bow will certainly see a lot more use because at 2 points, plus 1 for an arrow, you can equip it after you die and are starting out with a new hunter.
The weapon still has limitations. It doesn't do much damage, you have to hit any of the current deadly animals twice to kill them, giving you a high chance of dying. It burns through ammunition quickly, so you have to keep buying more arrows.
The new equipment art looks great! It really ties in with the board, and will help people learn the game by acting as labels for the score tracks.
