So glad you like this game. I like it a lot also. Everytime I play it, it makes me laugh. Your wife is correct
You only need 1XP to move to the next space, whether it has 1-3 dots on it. , but if you go over multiple spaces you have to pay all the XP/dots on the spaces between, plus at least 1 more for the space you land on.
Ooh, who won? Who saved the princess?
