Whenever a player comes across a group or an enemy army or a monster, tapping on that will take you deeper into the battle zone where you will have to successfully defeat them in order to progress. Once in the battle zone the player will have to deploy his troops. How is this done? Players will have to choose the card which contains the troops that he wants to deploy. Once this is done, you can strategically place them on the arena from where you wish to launch the attack.
