Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition Walkthrough
Table of Contents
This new land features a new unit. Haunt the shrine in the north corner to see this trickster. The goal here is to fight through the two groups of yellow soldiers and meet the red forces at the bridge in the center of the map.
Use the stone-crossings to get over the rivers, and try to get a Crow Monk by the second turn. The Crow Monk uses a gust spell that can knock anything around. Crows can blow skulls/potions around, blow friendly or enemy units, push units out of a Spirit Wall, and send them into spikes or water. Pretty handy – and like other Monks, he’ll gain new spells after eating more skulls.
Use the Crow Monks to defeat both groups of yellow soldiers. If they stick to Spirit Walls, use the Crow Monk to blow one into the water, and use the other troops to knock-back the rest into water whenever possible. It’s really the best way to handle these guys.
Things get tough near the center. Eight new units will appear in the lower corner, so come to the center prepared. If possible, feed the Crow Monks three skulls to give them two turns. They’ll be able to kill two opponents per turn.
Clear out the enemies, and eat the left over skulls. Getting demons will help the next battle immensely. Cross the bridge at the center to face off with General Higure.
Most likely, Akamoto will start this battle completely outnumbered. If it looks nasty, retreat down the left path to the Soldier Shrine and capture the rice paddies there to rebuild the red army.
Two demonic Crow Monks will make this battle much easier. Target the yellow troops outside of Spirit Walls to easily gust them into the rivers.
With two Crow Monks, don’t bother capturing the Soldier Shrine near the enemy general. Try pushing him into the water, or just finish him off first once his army is decimated.
