True...

...but if we worry about that, what about all the other unintended targets?

Now that I think about it, I also am wondering why we go with 1d-3 for the damage, as opposed to say a single point of damage (calculated as if it werer 0.25d, right?). If the original M.U.N.C.H.K.I.N. isn't rules legal, perhaps variants that leave out different elements of it (to save points) is a good idea.
