I would love to be able to play with the dwarves and actually kill a troll or two, but simply cannot figure the tactics out. I am a reasonable chess player and can normally see how the tips can be executed, but this is jst baffling me and preventing me having fun with what i believe could be a fabulous game!
Ok, i get the idea that you need to make blocks, but as soon as i get anywhere near doing so, a pesky troll has stepped up and destroyed its potential. Likewise, i cannot take a troll who is standing next to me...becaiuse there is NEVER a troll standing next to me...as soon as i move to wirhin one square, he will move next to me and take me. If i move next to him, he will then move and take me. If i am more than 1 square away then i am too far away to take hime!!! ARGGHH!!
But the rules advise forming blocks and this is obviously where the secret lies. I have seen advice about diagon al moving, changing your movement around th eboard, forming more than one block etc, but ot no avail!
Please help this frustrated Pratchett fan figure out how to use the dwarfs!!!
Thanks in advance and if you do find a chance to post a reply, Please spell out the answer as if i was a child as i am feeling pretty stoopid after all this!!!
