One player controls the vulture (one piece) and the other player controls the crows (seven pieces). The game is played on a pentagram shaped board. Crows are entered on the board one at a time, while the vulture moves freely and attempts to capture crows by jumping. Once all the crows have been placed, one can be moved on each turn. The crow player seeks to trap the vulture. The vulture wins when only three crows remain.
