You just need to think outside the box:

Actually after a few misfires I realized you could spin the board counter clockwise and have it drop right in the center lane without going through the maze. That made it pretty easy.

Right now I'm on the mission where you have to go to four separate objectives across the map. And it seems like it's taking forever since I'm stopping to do shrines in between.
That's the main quest for me as well, but I haven't bothered starting it. Shrines & sidequests to level up some and then some towers for me.

Oh and I love the insta-death encounters with the Yiga Clan. Walk up to a stranger to talk and have them kill you. Lovely design element there.

I'm far from a good videogame player, I tend to always pick "easy" if it's an option - but not once, in over 25 encounters, did I ever die at the hands of one of those Yiga Clan dudes, much less get insta-killed.

Me neither, but that was the last section of the map I covered so the Yiga didn't start showing up until way later in the game for me.

You didn't run in to the random travelers that were disguised as Yiga? I seemed to come up against them randomly all over, but maybe I just didn't notice what area I was in every time it came up.

I don't recall them being too difficult either.

Rarely, they became more prominent after they were formally introduced around Gerudo Town. Maybe my playthru was glitched.

Tough with 3 hearts when one hit takes half that. I haven't run into one in awhile since I doubled my hearts.

At lower levels I just ignored them or ran away, there's nothing forcing you to engage them, is there?

Yup, I don't remember ever getting insta-killed by a random Yiga.

I just suck at them then I guess.

Of course not, but I'm motherfucking Link! Defeater Ganon dozens of times over. I run from no peon wannabe.

Speaking of the Yiga, it would have been interesting to see your, ahem...legend grow throughout the game(hell, maybe it does and I'm too early to tell), where the clan grows bigger & stronger a the tales of Link spread through Hyrule.

Think Zelda + Mordor's Nemesis system.

My 8-yo son tossed the ball in the air and flip the board 180 to have it land on the smooth surface and then guided the ball around. Genius!
