HOW TO PLAY (see below or click the following link to watch our “How to Play” video)
SKIPPING THE COLOR CHIPS
Players skip over chips on the board, just like in checkers, but with the following rules: Red skips Green, Green skips Blue, and Blue skips Red. After a player skips a chip, they remove it from the board flip it over, and place it in a pile which is referred to as their Hand.
THE GRAYSCALE CHIPS
Once a Color chip is flipped, it reveals a Grayscale color (white, gray, or black), which has a special power (see below for information about the special Gold chip).
Flipping a chip to White allows a player to take one chip from their opponent’s Victory Card and place it in the player’s Hand. A Black chip permits a player to move twice on the board (either two skips, two moves, or a move and a skip). A Gray chip allows a player to take one chip from another player’s Hand and return it to the game board. After a player uses a Grayscale chip, they turn it over to reveal the Color side and place it on their Victory Card.
THE GOLD CHIP
On the Grayscale side of the chips, there is also a special Gold chip (there are a total of 3 Gold chips in the game). The Gold chip allows a player to transfer any chip from another player’s Victory Card to their Victory Card. Plus, they get to flip over the Gold chip they played and put that on their Victory Card as well.
During the game, players must make strategic decisions about when to skip Color chips and when to use the special powers of the Grayscale and Gold chips, in order to put themselves in the best position to win.
HOW TO WIN
After a player uses a Grayscale chip, they turn it over, Color side-up, and place it on their Victory Card. In a 2-player game, the first player to collect 3 each of the red, green, and blue chips, wins the game. If 3-4 people are playing, the first player to collect 2 of each color chip, wins.
