What are the rules for clues for this version? What can't you say about a card? It's not straight forward as it is with words that you can't say the word on the card.

Actually it is more straight forward you don't need such a restriction here.

There are really no restrictions about what you can say other than you can't say something like C:4 suggesting all the cards that have something starting with the letter C on them. Otherwise pretty much anything else goes. If there's a dog on the card you can say dog as a clue.

So the challenge is connecting 2 or more words?

The challenge is to use a single word to connect two or more pictures.

Of course you can give a clue for a single picture, but that's boring and won't win you the game (unless you already have a large lead).

on pg. 7 the rules suggest that you may add
a restriction to not mention the shape of picture,
i.e. square or rectangle.

Thanks for the rules link!
