Papillons is a card game in which each player has a secret objective: to align four butterflies of a given colour or of a given type.
Players take turns to place a card in the table trying to obtain their secret four-butterflies alignment or to move an already placed card to another place. They also have two tokens which can be used only once; one token removes an already placed card from the game and the other one fixes an already placed card so it cannnot be moved never more during the game.
There are versions for 2, 3 and 4 players, and a cooperative one for 4 players playing in pairs.
The illustrations and graphic designs are by Gérald Guerlais.
