In the campaign, you begin with a limited number of pieces. You can purchase new pieces with the gold you gain from beating levels as well as earn some for free. Move your king along the path. As you reach different destinations you can collect gold, unmake, items, free pieces, and battle. You can only move to the right; you cannot move backwards. While battling, hover over a piece and hold down the shift key to see its available moves. Hold down control to see a piece’s card description.
During a battle you can use an unmake token to undo your last move. Items are consumable pieces you can drop onto your half of the board to use for the rest of the battle. Consumed items won’t be available after the battle. Make your way through the campaign and beat the final level to win!
