Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition Walkthrough
Table of Contents
This battle looks ugly. Akamoto starts with 3 cavalry, 2 infantry, and 2 archers. The enemy is spread out among four large groups, the closest consists of 3 cavalry and 2 archers. In the center there are 3 more archers. Around the left corner of the wall are 2 cavalry with 2 infantry. The general himself is protected by 4 cavalry and 2 infantry.
That’s a lot of bad guys. To handle them, Akamoto will need to slowly work through each of the groups.
Don’t attempt to capture the two Lion Shrines in the first turn. Instead, go for the Crow Monk Shrine and the two rice paddies.
Place two infantry on the hill leading up to the first group of cavalry. Move archers on the hill to shoot enemies above, and fight up the hill with the aid of the Crow Monk.
Clear out the archers/cavalry while avoiding the left Lion Shrine. Try to capture that and the archers in the center will kill. Capture the Soldier Shrine to start replenishing Akamoto’s army.
Play it safe and hunker down. Let the enemy attack. They’ll trickle in with only a unit or two at a time. Wipe them out and eat the skulls – eating skulls will make the final assault on the general much easier.
Keep a few critical units alive with the Crow Monk’s evasive spell. Using it gives the unit a +50% evasion bonus. It usually guarantees a miss.
Kill the General’s guards, and he’ll come down for Akamoto. Finish him off, and it’s on to the final area.
