Object of the game

Get more cards faster than the other players.

Game play

On go, each player flips (at the same time) one of the cards around the middle card. The players must find the identical symbol between the middle card and the cards which have just been revealed.

End of the game

As soon as all the revealed cards have been taken, the players place the middle card at the bottom of the draw pile and start a new round.
