When the player is an attacker, his board’s party will be mirrored on the other party’s board, taking the horizontal middle line of the board as the central axis.

Mahjong tiles that the player buys from tile boxes will be placed on their bench. Players can drag the tiles from the bench to the corresponding square on the board. The tiles can only be placed on 4 rows below the board. During the phase, players cannot put or move their tiles but can sell tiles or take them back to their bench. If the number of tiles on the board exceeds the maximum, the last tiles installed on the board will be returned to the bench according to the number exceeded.

The first grade is activated when there are 3 ninjas, and the second grade is activated when there are 6 ninjas. (At this point, both effects are in effect.)
