Play involves collecting coloured dice to place on your Window grid, aiming to match both the common and private objectives - things like rows of matching colours, only low numbers or varied colours. The colour and the number of the dice you choose are important, not only do you need to make certain number and colour patterns to score points, but your Window indicates spots that only take a particular colour or number.
As you place your dice and build up a pattern on your Window, you start to create scoring arrangements. But as it fills up it also gets trickier to maximise your points because you aren't allowed to place dice with matching numbers or colours next to each other. This is eased a bit with a set of Tool moves you can use to adjust your dice. At the end of ten rounds you total up the scores, getting points for your objectives completed, Tool tokens not spent and losing points for empty slots in your window. The winner with the most points wins.
It's a game where you are working on your own area, but need to keep an eye on everyone else to see which dice you should choose next. Expert players learn to score the same objectives on multiple rows to maximise their scores. It all comes together to offer both intricacy and simplicity in a way that is rare in these kinds of games.
The first time you play it can help to do the following:
- Leave the special Tool abilities until you have the basics down.
- Choose the simpler objectives to start with.
- Ensure you offset more complex objectives with more Tool tokens.
- Highlight some example ways to score points with multiple objectives.
- Go through some of the ways you can't place dice based on neighbours or the Window card cells.
