HOW TO PLAY SHAmory
DIFFICULTY ADJUSTMENT CARDS
Game play can adjust from easy to very hard, just like Bitcoin mining. There are 14 Nonce cards that say Difficulty Adjustment on them. The more you use, the harder the game will be. We recommend starting by using 3, especially for the younger kids. As your mining skills grow, feel free to keep adding more. Discard all excess Difficulty Adjustment cards prior to game play.
Add 1 Difficulty Adjustment card to the 11 Nonce monster cards. Place the remaining Difficulty Adjustment cards you have chosen to play with in a stack to the side. So if you are playing with 3, 2 would be stacked to the side.
Shuffle the Nonce cards, including the 1 Nonce Difficulty Adjustment card you added, and spread them out face down as if you were going to play a game of memory.
TIP: Leave enough space between cards to add in more Difficulty Adjustment cards as you play!
ATTACK AND REWARD CARDS
Make separate stacks of the Attack and Reward cards and place the 2 stacks to the side where you have the Difficulty Adjustment stack of cards. You should now have 3 total stacks of cards to the side, ignoring the extra discarded Difficulty Adjustment cards you have chosen not to use.
Give the 11 Target cards a shuffle and stack them to the side as well, flipping the top card so the monster side is showing.
Stack all of the Block cards face down. Make sure block height 0 is on top and 10 is on the bottom.
