Place the board on the team side. Take the permanent medals (Desert Monster, Rune Monsters and Penalty) and find their location on the board. Form a first pyramid with the desert monster medals by placing the 2 team medals at the base and the individual medal at the top. Do the same with the 3 monsters runes medals. Then place the 2 penalty medals on top of each other on the mid-runes mid-desert location.
Then complete the remaining 2 pyramid locations by choosing the type of medals that match the type of landscape.
