Current rules are as follows:
1. Deal out seven cards to each player. (Cards are hidden, i.e. player facing).
2. Place the remainder of the deck face down in the centre of the playing area, then place the top card face up next to the stack.
3. Each player then draws a card from either the stack or the discard pile (which the card that has been placed face down initially forms the foundation of), and then discards either the card they have just drawn or one from their hand.

The idea of the game is to collect pink stars such that you have at least one star for every position on a 3x4 grid (such an outcome being called a Pingo). However, in addition, you must have in your Pingo at least one more nought than cross. During the game players need to collect cards with pink stars in whatever positions they currently don't them, drawing and discarding until the first player to have the win conditions calls out 'Pingo!', whereupon they lay their cards face up on the table to show that they satisfy the conditions (i.e. have the right number of stars and one more nought than cross) and, if the other players are satisfied that they do, that player is declared the winner of that round.

The current file is of course subject to change during playtesting. Folks are welcome to download and try Pingo! out for themselves.

A couple of photos to show that the life of a game designer is not always a glamorous one, and that there's a lot of donkey work involved.
