Power-ups are placed randomly on the game board, shown by this rotating question mark. If you land on one, you will get a special ability!
The power-up you receive is chosen randomly based on your position on the game board. This means players who are further behind will get more attack power-ups to help them get ahead, whilst players in the lead will get power-ups which are more defensive, to help them retain their position.
A player can use a power-up at anytime. It will show in a little box at the top right of their screen, where they can click/tap on it at any point to activate it.
