The dealer selects a calling card which will have 2 categories (e.g.: a city or a word ending in 'us') and then chooses one of the two categories listed. Then players use wands with a gummy end to dig out letters from a big pile of tiles to form an answer that correctly fits into the category selected. The first person to do so receives 1 share of the gold mine. 5 shares are exchanged for a gold bar and the winner is the first player with 3 gold bars.
