Collect special items for an advantage! The Pickaxe lets you take the shortcut through the rock in the way. The Dynamite lets you auto defeat any 3 Rock creatures. The king's gold is a gem worth 5 points.
Roll 5 or 6 to cross the "Dangerous Bridge", "Mega Gorge", "Breaking Ground", or "Lava Pit" obstacles. The Hardhat lets you automatically cross any 1 of these obstacles.
Place collected items on the left part of your character bin, and return them when you are done using them (But keep the king's gold in your gem bin)!
