PHASES

  Repair phase

      If your wall is damaged, you can spend 5 resource to repair a single chip
      of wall

  Resource

      Draw 3 cards from resource deck

  Movement

      Move your units up to three movements

  Combat

      Combat between different units that are close enough to each other. Unit
      range is equal to its movement. You draw a card for each unit on the
      attacking square

      When you attack a building, you have to beat the cards to damage the it.
      So if you can only beat two of the three cards for a wall, then you only
      do two points of damage

  Phases alternate between players. Player 1 takes their resource phase,
  then player 2 takes their resources phase. Then we move to the
  movement & combat phase the same way

Rules

Your resources are a currency that pays for everything: Units, movement, and
repairing your fortress. Dice can be rolled for air strikes
