Build a scenario based on the number of players. You’ll find instructions on the scenario booklet. Scenarios are comprised of hexagonal tiles called areas.
Shuffle all area center tokens face down and place one on each tile of the matching color on the game board. Leave all deployment areas and blocked path hexes empty.
Shuffle the 20 adventurer cards and hand out 5 to each player, face down.
Leave the emblem cards visible and within reach of all players.
Shuffle the objective cards and place them by the game board. Draw 3 cards and place them in a row, visible to all players, next to the remaining deck.
After players have picked a color, each one takes their miniature base and formation tokens.
