Instructions - Confusion


CONFUSION is a 2-player strategy board 
game. The object of the game is 
similar to that of chess, to capture 
the opposing king, but the gameplay is 
significantly different.

At the start of the game, only the two 
kings are on the board. Additional 
pieces may be placed anywhere on the 
player's half of the board.

The board itself consists of a 12x12 
grid of tiles. As well as plain tiles, 
the grid contains 10 types of special
tile which affect pieces landing on 
them. When the game starts, all the 
tiles are covered, their type is only 
revealed the first time a piece lands 
on them.

The number of special tiles on the 
board is proportional to the 
difficulty level. The difficulty level 
represents the number of each tile in 
each quarter of the board, so on level 
1 there are only 10 special tiles in 
each quarter, on level 3 there are 30 
in each quarter (leaving only 24  
blank tiles on the whole board!)

A full description of all the pieces 
and tiles can be obtained by clicking 
on the "INFO" box on the level select 

The game ends when one of the kings is 
either taken by an opposing piece, or 
destroyed by landing on a Death, 
Convert or Mutate tile.

To skip a move, press the right mouse 
button (picking a piece up and placing 
it back on the same tile is legal, but 
will reactivate the tile). This was 
originally added in case one player 
was unable to move, so decide whether 
you want to allow it all the time or 
just in that case.

To abort a game and return to the 
level select screen, press F10.
