Description Edit | History

from Rules Translation:
All players, except the director, put their hands under the table. The director turns over the top card of the stack with a fair draw and places it in front of the stack where all players can see it
Fair draw: the director turns over the card so that all other players can see it at the same time (and before he can see it) by turning up the edge farthest away from him first. Of course, he may turn the card over very quickly, otherwise he will be at a disadvantage.

Immediately, all players begin to look for the TohuWabohu shapes portrayed on the task card. If a player discovers a shape, he immediately puts his index finger on it. (Of course, he may use both index fingers in order to grab two shapes!)

Once discovered, players keep their fingers on the shapes as long as necessary until all shapes portrayed on that task card are found. Then each player takes the TohuWabohu shapes that they first correctly pointed to and place them in front of them, where all players can still clearly see them. All other players go away empty handed.
That task card is then set side.

If a new task card shows a TohuWabohu shape that is already lying in front of a player, another player may try to win this shape by putting his finger on it before the current owner can secure it himself.

It is forbidden for a player to intentionally obstruct the view of other players. Hands must be kept under the table except when using fingers to point at TohuWabohu shapes!

Scoring and game end
The round ends when a player has eight TohuWabohu shapes in front of him. That player wins the round. With 5 or 6 players, the round ends when a player has seven shapes. If more than one players gets to this number of shapes at the same time, continue playing the round until one player has more shapes than any other.

At the end the round, each player gets 1 point for each TohuWabohu shape that he has in front of him. The winner of the round gets an additional 4 points.

For the next round, all of the TohuWabohu shapes are placed back in the middle of the table again. The player to the left of the director becomes the new director for this round.
Play as many rounds as there are players. The player with the most points at the end of all rounds is the winner.
