This abstract boardgame is made completely of wood and is quite beautiful. The object of the game is to score the most points before one of the types of pieces are all gone. There are Roofs in each of the players' colors, which are used to score points when they cast a Shadow. A Sun token is placed next to a Roof and will score the Roof's owner points for each Shadow placed on the other side. The Shadows score points for the Roof's owner, and can be scored multiple times if surrounded by multiple Roof/Sun combinations. Each turn, a player places three pieces in any combination, but must score at least one point per turn. The game ends when one player plays his last Roof or the last Sun or Shadow is played.
The included English translation of the rules incorrectly describes Double Siesta scoring. Neither those rules nor the "Real Siesta Rules" by Carlberg adequately explain scoring shadows again when they become part of a new Siesta. Carlberg's rules don't mention that "diagonal" is not considered adjacent. Neither set mentions that roof orientation doesn't matter. Both sets are kind of verbose about when the game ends.
