Situation 7 is a game in which two players or teams race with each other to put together the pieces of a puzzle. Each player has a complete puzzle which, when assembled, covers the entire playing board. The two puzzles are identical except for the background shade and the pieces of each puzzle are interchangeable with those of the other.
The object of the game is to win more points than any other player. Points are won by completely covering sections of the board which are outlined by black grid lines on the board and by covering special objectives that have additional point values.
