Shift gear with this one – it turns the tables – literally! It’s a battle of spirits between High King Lóegaire and St. Patrick. Players sit at right angles to each other, pitting their wits against the unknown powers of the enemy. Get your head around this, take control of the enemy and watch them squirm!

Red built first on E7, so Blue must build on any edge hill, marked with a tick except E1 (opposite E7).||fig. 2: End of Manoeuvres – each player has built one ringfort on each board edge. None are built opposite another.|

|fig. 6: Finished game: Red has 3 kingdoms and Blue has 6, so Red wins. Red scores 2 points (for the win) plus 3 bonus points (for the difference between 3 and 6) which equals 5 points. Note: only Blue has any single ringforts remaining.|
