Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • If you have 1-6 total Speed, use Cocaine to gain Cocaine Burnout in the Effects Phase, lowering your Speed to 0 or less. Then, turn Sampo counterclockwise and gain 2 stacks of Empowered Dice. If you are a Warlock, you can then Chaotic Energy Sampo for 2 more stacks, then Harvest Power 3 more times for either 2 more stacks or for Chaotic Power for 1 more stack + the 3 bonus Speed; either way, you reach the 5 stacks needed for a 6x Roll Streak, the per turn cap. Then, use Cocaine again to go a large amount of spaces forward when you roll.
