Setup1. Board set up depends on the number of players.a. For two players the board
is made up of tiles, facedown, in a 3x5 pattern with theplayers at either end of
the long side.b. For four players the board is made up the same as the two player
board withthree additional tiles centered on each side of the short ends of the
board. It willlike a fat plus symbol when complete.2. Each player chooses a set of
coins and places them on their home row (back set ofsquares) face-up in the order
of their choosing. These are a player's pieces.3. The center four squares each get
a large pyramid.4. The next ring of 12 squares each gets a medium pyramid.5. The
next ring of 20 squares each gets a small pyramid.6. Choose two dice, select one
for piece number and one for piece type.
Play1. On a player’s turn he rolls both dice.a. The number die determines which
piece gets moved.b. The type die determines how that piece will move. The piece

otherpieces.d. A piece can capture an opposing player's piece or any pyramid it
lands on as inchess.1. Only five of any player’s pieces can be captured, when a
player is down toone piece it is considered immune to capture.2. Captured pyramids
are added to a players stash.e. Once a piece has left the back two rows it cannot
re-enter them.f. A piece can never enter another players back 2 rows.g. If a player
