Dropped a little cash for this one a ways back out of boredom (and because I buy pretty much anything sold by looney labs). The game basically works as follows:

1) a 4x4 grid of wooden nickles is laid randomly face down on the table.

2) starting with the 1st player (rotating counterclockwise), each player picks a corner to move their marker (small plastic chip) onto and reveals the nickle moved onto, which takes effect in one of the following ways:
a) one-way arrow - nothing immediately happens, player may rotate the nickle to face any of the 4 directions on his turn instead of moving
b) two-way arrow - player immediately rotates one face up nickle other than the one he landed on 90 degrees counterclockwise
c) 4-way arrow - all face up nickles rotate 90 degrees counterclockwise

3) play continues in a counterclockwise direction with each player moving in the direction of an arrow on his current nickle (or rotating teh current nickle if on a one-way)

The winner is whichever player manages to reach the opposite corner from his starting corner 1st

Game play is rather simple and quick to learn. It's a good game when you want to fit in a quick 10 minute game while waiting for someone or before you wrap up a night of gaming. Some players may, however, want to alter the turn order if they are planning on playing any other games after, because (and as ridiculous as it sounds, this does tend to happen) the counterclockwise turn order gets stuck in your mind and you end up doing it in other games you play as well. Overall, a good game if you're in the mood for something quick and light.

I believe the winner is the one to return to their home corner AFTER visiting the opposite corner.
