Beginning with the active player and proceeding clockwise, each participant may attempt to Subdue territories a declining number of times.
The active player may attempt to Subdue 3 territories.
The second player may attempt to Subdue 2 territories. The third and fourth players may attempt to Subdue 1 territory.
Subdue by Force – First, select the territory you wish to Subdue. Then, attempt to defeat the territory in combat (see the Combat Rules section for additional details), using the Defense Value indicated on that Territory tile. The higher the Territory’s Defense Value, the greater the potential reward for Subduing it (see the Territory Tile Reference). If you succeed in combat, claim the territory tile, and place it in your play area. If you fail in combat, do not claim the territory tile. This Failure still counts as one of your allowed attempts at subduing a territory.
Peacefully Subdue – First, select the territory you wish to Subdue. Then, discard the resources indicated on the top of that territory tile. The more resources you spend, the greater the potential reward for Subduing the Territory. After spending the required resources, claim the territory tile and place it in your play area.
After completing all of your attempts to Subdue territories, flip over all the territory tiles you Subdued this turn and claim the rewards indicated.
Territory tiles are divided by resource type and by level. Red tiles are Food Territories, blue tiles are Favor Territories, and purple tiles are Dice Territories. The level is equal to the Defense value on each tile, either 1, 2, or 3.
During the Cleanup Phase, players score 1 Glory for each territory tile they have Subdued so far.
