We also don't have enough of those hexes to really justify flipping it so that the cardboard hexes are slow or dangerous, either: even combining all three boxes, it's often tough to build more than one decent hill.
The fact that they're the only 3D hexes, and that tying up a majority of the cardboard spaces with rules would be a bad idea, is why I keep trying to move the conversation more in this direction:

Btw, thanks for bumping all the threads lately, @Astroking112 . I still don't know when I'll have the time/energy/space to set up my next test(s) but maybe with the long weekend I can get something done Soon™. folks still use the cardboard for AoTV? I'm not against using the cardboard I'm just surprised it's being used. I used it once and then used 'scape hexes...I'm not sure I still have the cardboard unless they're lining the bottom of a box somewhere. I certainly don't have a plethora of hexes but I have enough to build decent sized maps and would love to have quicksand...

Possibly: When you land on the hex, roll a d20, on a 1-10 the figure must stop movement, on 11-20 the figure may move through.
Any figure on a quicksand hex at the end of a round must have a friendly figure stopped adjacent to the 'stuck' figure to begin another movement phase.
At the end of a round (turn? - always get those two mixed up - the end of the full 3 order markers) all figures on quicksand hexes roll one die to see if they are suffocating.

Just a thought...wording needs massaged.

Just when you thought it was all right, someone made it alright.

Good trades with - Porkins / xraine69 / mac122 (x2) / frylock / Ztimster (x2) and probably others I forgotten to mention...sorry.
