From the back of the box: Be the first player to duplicate six of your dot patterned cards to the playing board.
Players are dealt 6 cards. Each card represents a specific pattern that a player will attempt to recreate on the board with their color of pawns. All pawns are placed on the board, which leaves one open space at any given time. Players take turns moving one of their pawns into the vacant space in an attempt to match one of the 6 patterns found in their hand of cards. If a pattern is matched, the card is set aside and the player draws back to 6 cards in their hand. The fist player to match 6 pattern cards wins.
