Played on a hex board with 120 equally sized pieces, each consisting of two joined hexes. There are coloured symbols (with a shape to aid recognition if colours are difficult) on each hex that make up the piece – some pieces have two identical symbols, some have two different symbols – similar to dominoes. 'All' you have to do is claim points by placing a piece so it's symbols match already placed pieces with the same symbol – earning points in the appropriate colours. The trick is that at the end you only score your lowest scoring colour – it's no good if red, blue, green and so on are over fifteen, if orange is only at two that's what you score. Therefore you can't ignore any of the colours and must try to score them in a balanced way throughout the game – making for interesting emergent game-play as the relative values of the colours on the board keep shifting for each player.
