Maybe it looks like classical chess, but it's not true. After starting the game you can see a couple of tombs on game field that you explore one by one and collect the figures (your's or oponent's). Your task is to defeat oponent (even in multiplayer) earlier then he do it to you. Each figure has it own level. The exact variation you can find in help. Game ends in that case, when only one side remain on the game field, even if it have only one figure.
