YAGG is a two-player turn-based strategy game.
Phases are the sequential stages of each game. They dictate what actions a player can perform.
Some game types start with the Recruitment phase, others start with the Placement phase. All game types end with a Battle phase.

Your starting units will be on these first two rows
Your opponent's units will be here. You will not see them until after you both press "ready"
Players take their turns by doing one of the actions below.
Most units can move to the adjacent horizontal or vertical square. Immobile units such as Flag, and Bomb cannot.
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.
The unit can only be placed in the first two rows, same as in the Placement phase.
Units having a special ability can trigger them.
Any units remaining in your hand can be placed on your turn

Triggers are abilities that activate under certain conditions.
This trigger activates after a unit moves. If a unit attacks and is killed, its move trigger doesn't activate.
This trigger activates before a unit attacks. Attack triggers can change how a unit battles, or prevent it from battling.
This trigger activates after a unit dies. If a unit dies in battle, its death trigger activates before the attacker's move trigger.
The board size varies from 5x5 up to 8x8.
Boards have water and block squares. The position of each depends on game type.
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.
A unit can push a block provided there is an empty square on the opposite side.
Blocks can be moved by units' special abilites.
