- Each player has 4 students and 1 master.
- The master starts on the temple arch.
- The students start 2 on each side of the master.
- Shuffle the 16 move cards and deal 2 to each player face up.
- Put another card in the middle.
- Remove the other 11 cards from the game.
- The player with the same colour as the stamp in the middle goes first.
- On your turn, do these two actions in order:
Move & Attack
- Choose a move card in front of you.
- Then, choose a pawn and move it as shown on the card.
- The square grid will show the possible moves.
- The black square in the middle represents the space your chosen pawn occupies.
- The coloured spaces show where your pawn can move in relation to its starting position.
- You can move your pawn to any one of the spaces indicated.
- Other pawns and temple arches don't block the movement of the pawn across the board.
- You can never make a move that would cause a pawn to move off the board or move onto the same square as one of your own pawns.
- If your pawn moves onto a square that is occupied by one of your opponent's pawns, the opponent's pawn is captured and removed from the game.
- Pieces are captured by landing on an opponent's piece.
- Moving over or through a square occupied by an opponent's piece doesn't capture it.
- If you can make a legal move, you must make it.
- If you can't make a legal move, you must skip moving and must still exchange.
- Add the move card in the middle to your hand.
- You may use it starting from the next turn.
- Take the move card you just used and place it in the middle.
- If you couldn't move, you can choose between the two cards in your hand.
- There are two ways to win:
- Capture your opponent's master pawn.
- Move your master pawn to your opponent's temple arch space.
