Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition Walkthrough
Table of Contents
Challenges await! The road to the bridge is treacherous, covered by troops on the left and right path. After one turn, swarms of enemies will appear right where Akamoto started.
The pressure is on. The red army needs to fight through the enemy while being chased down by purple opponents.
Here’s the high-risk strategy. Split the army – send cavalry or infantry down the left path and capture the Soldier Shrine with a rice paddy or two. Send the General too, to play it dangerously.
The left-team are going to have to tank and protect the Soldier Shrine. Summon new troops here to help while the right-team moves down the long path.
The right-team can capture more rice paddies, the Fox Shrine, and the enemy Soldier Shrine before linking with the left-team and handling the Spirit Wall infantry.
The toughest part is taking out the purple infantry and archer near the brambles. Link up and leave the lower Fox Monk to tank enemies below – there’s no need to keep him. Capture the upper Fox Shrine while linking up. Use this one to help heal Akamoto’s army.
Archers can shoot through the brambles. Use this factoid to soften up the cavalry around the bridge near the exit. Now that Akamoto’s army is linked up, move around the brambles while forming a Spirit Wall.
Hitting enemies into brambles does extra damage. The bad guys are going to try to do the same thing, so keep it tight during the final stretch.
Bring the whole army. It may -look- like there are only two cavalry, but get close and an archer with an infantry unit will appear.
Move the rest of the army, leaving infantry (or summoning infantry from the Soldier Shrines) to slow down the spawning army behind.
Finish off the cavalry, use archers to shoot through brambles, and watch out for the ledges! Hit enemies into the brambles/ledges and this battle won’t last. Get General Akamoto across the bridge to finish this mission.
