Each player starts the game with 6 blocks and take turns to place them next to others in the centre of the table. To play a block (or series of blocks) you must match either colour or shape of other blocks and it must not repeat a colour or shape in any row you are adding to. Doing this, you extend rows of colours or shapes to score points each go.
You score one point for each block played plus all blocks adjacent. It is possible for a block to score in more than one direction. You can score additional points by adding to both horizontal and vertical rows at the same time. You also get an additional six points if you complete a row so it has one of each shape or colour.
After placing your block you draw more from the bag to bring you back to six in hand. Once you have run out of blocks in the bag you keep playing until one player plays all of his remaining blocks, which earns another six point bonus and finishes the game.
