Hedge maze puzzle

This is where you spade, shovel and sickle. Or is it reap?

Hedge maze puzzle

I've also wondered whether all of the different starting possibilities have the same number of expected clicks to complete them. I assume they do, but I never know. That's why I'm here. Because you do know.

Since the data was lost in the Great Reset of 04/10, here's the data once more:

112 puzzles, 342 clicks until they're all used up. That means a puzzle wasn't stolen 230 times, and was stolen 112 times. Basically, 33% of the time your puzzle piece is stolen.

Following up on my now missing post, wondering about how many clicks takes to solve a hedge maze puzze, a data point:

puzzle spins to get to key, then to gate (total):
6,4 (10)
5,5 (10) <-- tending to confirm Bazzles comment about "they are all the same"

I'm more or less sure that Jick has said that all the different hedge maze templates take the same number of turns. I note that the wiki doesn't have any of the maps up anymore and a note in the talk page that it's just random, which I know isn't true.
