I believe Catrina's "putting breakthrough" is easily within her grasp, and it would not be at war with her nature like the changes might be for the others. She seems to have the courage to risk two...

So here's what we have so far to consider for 2020:

1) Consider Relief area rule instead of throw-and-distance from drop zones on 9, 12, 17.

In our testing, we had a throw roll past the mandatory. It takes a pretty amazing roller to miss the mandatory on 3, and the strategy is not without its risks. It gives up one of the least risky...

Like all aces, I think the target kept Nikko closer than if it had not been there. I am not sure if the disc would have stayed in the grass, come to rest in the road, or skipped back fair. While it...
