Each player controls a different character in the game and each character has certain unique Special Abilities that can be used during the game. The characters move around the board, normally by rolling a die, but sometimes by the use of Spells or as a result of special events on the board.

Characters can encounter another Character in the Space they land in or they can choose to follow the instructions on the space.
