In this video, you will learn the basics of Navigation with your game.  You will create a home page with a play button which takes you to your game.  Then, when the player loses the game, he is navigated back to the home page.  You will also start to use functions, which is a great way to save yourself some time when you are repeating actions over and over.  You can simply put those Actions in a function, and then call that function.
