Hi, a lot of questions! I’ll try to catch them all :)


  • The game ends when there are five attacks on a single border track, ie. 5 on the North track
  • Losing a die also works in regards to a single track, so if there are three undefended attacks on the North track you lose a die.
  • You can (and are encouraged to!) fill defences under an already marked Attack. This cancels them.


  • You must write a number before taking the optional actions.
  • You can have multiple adventures active at the same time.

Losing dice:

  • Correct, there’s not much reason to build a mine in a space with a destroyed die. However, the mines must go somewhere if you bring them back from an adventure, so it’s still possible to fill up all your mines without defending your borders.

Tech tracks:

  • The technologies worth points are a seperate track that must be marked (instead of buying a technology that does something useful). This one I’ll try to fix up the graphic design for so it’s a bit clearer.

Thanks for playing!

Dude, thanks for swiftly answering all of my questions and for making this and Mausritter.  Keep up the solid work.  Just one more quick question.  If you take the optional rule to spend food to push further down the adventure track, can you do that multiple times or just once?  Also, if I'm understanding your clarification on the borders then there's no reason to build more than three defenses in a given border because there are only 5 daggers and so if you build 3 defenses then that border is now safe.

  • Yep, you can only take the Spend Food option once per “Hire adventurers” action.
  • Correct, there’s not much point in building more than three defences on a border. But that’s a big investment of time and gems that could be spent on other things!

Sick.  I played this game solo today more time than I care to admit.  Nice work.  Also, unrelated to this, I built a one shot adventure for Mausritter and I just got done running it for Virtual Kobold Con and the players all really liked it.  I would love to put some finishing touches on it and provide it to you to use as an intro adventure.

That’s great — would love to take a look! Send me an email: isaac [at]
