HOW TO PLAY


A game simple to learn, but difficult to master!


  1. Each player will draw 5 cards from the deck. Each card in their hand will have 4 numbers on it, one number on each facing of the card. North, East, South, and West.

  2. The first player ( chosen randomly ) will then place a card somewhere on that 5 x 5 grid. Next they will place a double sided token on the card marking that they own it, with the color of their choosing facing up. They will then draw a card from the deck, signaling the end of their turn.

  3. The next player will then go, doing the same thing.

When placing cards you must choose to place them in such a way that you can capture another players card while at the same time defending your own.

RULES FAQ


The following are clarification on the rules as described in the Instruction Journal.


  1. When I lay down a card and the wave created off of my card can go into multiple directions, what happens?

    Waves can split. If a wave can go in multiple directions it is the choice of the capturing player which cards to capture. It's possible in some cases to actually capture less cards if you choose the less optimal path.
