Knights of the Grid, the Hollow Horse, Jungle Warfare, and a Thief in the Knight. The Earth Star. ''Can't Whistle for a Colt. Colts only load Riders through the Knights' Footprints.'' ''Can you see the strategic advantage of being able to rotate the riding pieces over the Ground Level?'' You can whistle for Peg but not the Colts. What is the winning condition? When getting used to a new game, ask what that criterion is at least. Possessing the Crystal of course here before reaching the Outer Limits. Simple as that. Elimination pieces need not stand in the way, nor even the Shield of Faith, if, and that's a big if, Crystal on the winning side.
