2.) Set up the game cube (dice), there are 3 types of tiles, and each game comes with 3 of each type, it is up to you what types of tiles you want to use, this makes the game very dynamic and difficulty can change depensing on how you and your mates wants to play.  

The 3 types are:

    recommended game: 2 Attack tiles, 3 Reload tiles, 1 Heal tile

3.) When you roll an Attack you can position the harpoon (stud shooter) to hit any one of the tentacle, if you hit one, remove it from the board and collect a gold coin from the chest.
