The game is similar to a board game. Up to four players can play, but must wait their "turn" for their move. On each turn, the computer will either "roll the die" or "spin the wheel" to randomly direct the character to move either one, two, or three spaces. On the first roll or spin, for example, each player will either end up at the Archers' Meet, the Rolling Hill, or the Mill.
Each space requires the player to either compete in a challenge or puzzle or make a strategic decision, as depicted below. If you win or lose a challenge, you will sometimes be moved forward or backwards a certain number of spaces. Purely at random, other things may happen: you may be attacked by robbers, your pack may be stolen by thieves, you may meet the evil wizard, or you may meet other characters with helpful advice such as magic numbers or signs.
