Battle

Players take their turns by doing one of the actions below.

Move

Most units can move to the adjacent horizontal or vertical square. Immobile units such as Flag, and Bomb cannot.

Attack

When a unit attempts to move into an enemy's square its attack is compared to the enemy's defence. If it is greater, the enemy is destroyed and the unit moves to that square. Otherwise the attacking unit is destroyed.

Place

The unit can only be placed in the first two rows, same as in the Placement phase.

Use Ability

Units having a special ability can trigger them.

Any units remaining in your hand can be placed on your turn

Move your units to attack

Triggers

Triggers are abilities that activate under certain conditions.

Move

This trigger activates after a unit moves. If a unit attacks and is killed, its move trigger doesn't activate.

Attack

This trigger activates before a unit attacks. Attack triggers can change how a unit battles, or prevent it from battling.

Death

This trigger activates after a unit dies. If a unit dies in battle, its death trigger activates before the attacker's move trigger.

Board

The board size varies from 5x5 up to 8x8.

Boards have water and block squares. The position of each depends on game type.

Water

Units cannot enter water. Projectiles such as Maycorn's spark or Howloo's horseshoe can pass over water.

Water can only be moved by Busybody's special ability.

Block

A unit can push a block provided there is an empty square on the opposite side.

Blocks can be moved by units' special abilites.
