Group Attack and Defense strength

Post by Wavelett » Tue Oct 11, 2005 6:41 pm

I just discovered Slay and became immediatly became addicted.

One thing I don't understand is how adjacent pieces affect attack and
defense strength.

It seems like putting knights next to spearmen keep the spearmen from being killed by the knights. Also, putting knights next to an attacking let
the spearman kill a castle.

I didn't see anything in the rules about grouping men. Does thes really
happen or am I misunderstanding something.

Thanks,
Wavelett.

WHOA!
did you just say that you destroyed a castle with a spearman?
Wow I have to try that and confirm what you just said.

Your men protect the hexagons around them (if they are hexagons owned by you). So, a knight protects all the hexagons around him and an attacking spearman wouldn't be able to move onto any of them, whether there was a peasant there or not.
