Hedge National Battle Park is rich in dueling history. Many scouts, monks, and villagers have died fighting for control of the battle park's infamous "Old Stone Head", which lies at the center of the map. The map's central ring is surrounded by two pagodas, and it is said that building a castle here, despite the lack of resources, provides the player with a sense of confidence. Often players will send a monk to the area between the pagodas and sacrifice it for good luck -- which is a large waste of resources. An ideal strategy involves holding key openings in the forested hills, collecting distant golds early on, and skillful walling -- which can be difficult given the elevation.
