Use three factions of miners to dig a tunnel with the most value.

  1. Discover who you will gain a tunnel segment from and who you will give a tunnel segment to. These are your immediate opponents for the round. With more than two players, they will cycle.
  2. Fire two workers. Send one to loiter around each opponent.
  3. Send a tunnel segment to the assigned opponent. Choose either points or protection against a collapse.
  4. Fight two battles. Send one worker to battle over each tunnel segment. Loitering workers will join the battle if their new owner plays a matching faction... whether your opponent wanted their help or not!
  5. If you win the battle in the tunnel segment you gave away, the opponent's tunnel will collapse! The number of segments lost will depend on their order and composition. They might even be added to your own tunnel!
