One way we play is to number each of the 6 exits and have each player write down the number of 3 of them - these are the exits that they want the jewels to leave by. We play the game, storing the jewels at each exit, then everybody reveals and we score up.

And what do you do when two players have the same exactly set of goals?

I imagine that would give the same feeling as the standard game, someone helps you to achieve your goal without knowing...

Except that right from the start of the game, those two people either lose, or draw. They can't win.

We play more than one game. It's unlikely that people will duplicate over multiple games. But I take your point

Is this way to play a 6 player game?

Instead of writing down numbers, how about use cards with prewritten sets of numbers, chosen to assure no duplicate sets?

You can do that, but you need to avoid asymmetric overlaps. If two players mostly share goals while another languishes off to one side, you'll have bias. Similarly if one player gets their goals right next to each other while the others have their separated. I suspect that if you strictly avoided all those cases, you'll end up with very rigidly defined sets that will be trivially deducible anyway.

Better, in that case, to simply play openly and save a few minutes of fruitless dancing about
