A quick followup to the previous post! Now that you are aware (I hope!) that there are multiple routes to get somewhere, there is one unique thing to impalers which should be noted. They drag the enemy around! =D Ok yeah you knew that too. But you should also consider what that means - take a look at this situation. I have a scroll in hand, and so can kill and stomp the fully equipped grenadier standing on the attack tile. There are two ways for me to do so, marked as route A and route B in the pictures below.
If you take route A, though, attacking at an angle means that your imp DOESN'T drag the dead grenadier, and thus does not leave the imp open to counter attack!
In the actual game, I chose route A, of course... but my opponent had a drill and finished me off that way. Ah well!
