The Cards

Rather than using rulers, dice, and miniature figures, KnifeTank has a unique set of knife and movement cards. These cards have symbols that correspond with symbols on your KnifeTank card.

Tread Symbols

Most movement cards have these symbols. If your knife or movement card has this symbol, line up the squares with the symbols on the tank. These types of cards can generally only go forward or backward.

Starting Health

The number in this symbol represents your starting health. Once your health reaches zero, your tank has been destroyed.

Turret Symbol

If you knife or movement card have this symbol, line it up with the symbol on the tank. These types of cards can pivot in any direction, as long as the symbols stay lined up.

Damage Cards

If damage is done during a hit, these numbers indicate what damage cards are needed to see how much damage is done. On this card, three numbers are listed 0,1, and 1), that means the player dealing the damage will take a 0 card, 1 card, and another 1 card and shuffle them up. The opponent then draws one of these three cards to see how much damage they have received.
