Goblin Phase: In the Goblin Phase, all players gain 4 goblins. They may play these goblins in their Encampments however they like. (1 / 3, 2/2, 4/0). Players may also purchase upgrades at this time.
Movement Phase: Starting with the player with the King's Ear, all players in turn order move their goblins one hex toward the castle. If the goblins are next to a castle unit at the beginning of the movement phase they will not move. At the end of each player's turn if that player has a goblin next to a castle unit, count the total number of goblins surrounding it. If the number meets or exceeds the goblin icon number on a castle unit, that unit is destroyed and that player gets a stone.
Castle Phase: The player with the King's Ear flips the top card of the Castle deck and takes whatever action is shown. (For instance, if they flip a Castle Unit, they would put a Castle Unit hex into play.) Then starting with the player with the King's Ear, players may purchase castle cards with stones that they may play or hold in their hands. Each castle card costs +1 stone for a player to buy, so the first player to buy a card costs 1 stone, the next costs 2 stones, until all players pass.
Conflict Phase: In the conflict phase, the castle will kill 1 goblin in each hex adjacent to it. All castle units will also kill goblins based on their attack regions and range. (See above, the archer kills 2 goblins in each hex in a straight line of 5 hexes. The knight kills 2 goblins in each hex adjacent to it in a 3 region arc.)
Victory: At the end of your movement, if you have at least 1 goblin next to the castle, and there are 5x the number of players in goblins surrounding the castle, the castle is destroyed. (If there are 3 players and I have 5 goblins next to the castle at the end of my movement, and the other players have 10 or more, we have hit the victory condition of 15 and I win because I was the last player to end my movement phase at the target number.)

Risks and challenges
Some of the risks we have taken have been to dedicate our lives to creating amazing games. We tried a different game before, but Kickstarter just wasn't the right platform for the game.
We know that you guys love board games, so this is our attempt to show a passion project to you guys, if we finally succeed we will officially be game designers and publishers and our families can give us the thumbs up to keeps pursuing our dreams.
Of course there are always the challenges of creating, shipping, and making games and I am sure you know what those are...changes to costs, shipping changes, delays, and the like. We plan to get this game to you as soon as we can, and your support means so much to us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
