- Main article: Squad
Squads are a complex game mechanic that somehow just seems natural; they appear on screen as a group of small creatures that move as one unit (whenever possible); an attacking swing by a large creature hits more than one of the creatures, so the unit as a whole takes damage for each creature struck; many of the mechanics related to squads are intuitively comprehensible concepts.
Squads with six members are x6 Squad Cards. Other squads have four members. If a squad is sufficiently damaged, one of the squad members will die permanently, and even if the squad is healed to full, a squad member or members will be missing.
