The game is the same as for 3-5 players except for the following changes.
Each player takes 2 screens.
1. Distribute Glass Beads
At the beginning of each round, each player takes a complete set of glass beads: 6 green, 5 red, 4 yellow, and 3 blue, placing them behind one of his screens to hide them from the other player.
In the first round only, place a normal set of glass beads (5 green, 4 red, 3 yellow, and 2 blue) as a supply in the middle of the table and place all remaining glass beads back in the box - they will not be needed in this game.
2. Determine Exchange Conditions
