If you don't understand some word used in the documentation or in card text, here is a handy Glossary of terms.

Action: To perform something, such as: To attack, To move a creature, To play a card, To use an ability of an Entity. Players take turns performing actions.

Adjacent: Any of the six spaces next to the given space.

Area of Control: Each player has an Area of Control, usually generated by buildings. This is defined by the big blue line around your buildings, and the red line around your opponent's. If a building is played within your Area of Control, it builds instantly.

Attack: An Attack is either a Melee Attack or a Ranged Attack. In order to melee another Figure the attacking Figure must be able to move into the space of its victim. A Ranged attack can hit anything within the figures range. Attack is also an attribute of figures that determines how much damage it does in an attack.

Base: This is needed to build most creatures. Unless specified otherwise, Creatures can only be built adjacent to a base.

Battle Back: When Figure A melees Figure B, Figure B is given the chance to attack Figure A back even if Figure B normally wouldn't be able to move there. It can Battle back as its attack action. For example a Driftwood Golem in an ocean attacks an Axe Captain. Normally the Axe Captain can't attack the Golem because it can't move to an ocean. But since the Golem attacked first the Axe Captain is allowed to retaliate.

Construction Site: When a building is placed outside of your Area of Control it first becomes a Construction Site. It starts with 4 Work tokens. Each round in which the Construction site remains undamaged a Work token is removed. Once all 4 are removed, the Construction site is replaced with the finished building. Construction Sites don't leave ruins when they are destroyed.
