Match cards by colour and creature to score points. Each of the 5 creatures has a special power to give you more control over your hand and card sets.

Join my Discord Server, I'll teach and play the game with you on Screentop!
Your primary objective is to score points by building sets of creatures. A set is 3, 4, or 5 cards of matching colour (e.g. White) or creature type (e.g. Rabbit). Each card may contribute to both a colour set and a creature set (e.g. White Rabbit scores for both the White and the Rabbit sets). See how this works:
You have a hand of cards. Play cards to the table to form sets. These sets score at the end of the game.
On your turn, you draw 2 cards from any piles, play 1 card, then discard 1 card to your personal discard pile:
When you play a card to a set, you may optionally use the creature's special power. This is described further in Creature Powers below.
End Game & Scoring
The first time the deck runs out, shuffle all discards into a new deck, and then play until the deck runs out again. You then finish the round and everyone counts up their scores!
|3-card set||1 point|
|4-card set||2 points|
|5-card set||3 points|
Here is an example of a group of cards that takes advantage of each card's colour and type. This player scores 6 sets (Blue, Red, Purple, Rabbit, Qilin, Dragon), earning 6 points (3-card-sets are worth 1 point each).

The Tortoise has an additional special power: you may play it out of turn if you have it in your hand when someone plays a matching Fox!

Reviews from Board Game Geek profile:
"It's an enjoyable, easy to learn, fun game with cute, locally drawn, art. It's a great group game and plays best with 3-4 players. It's a delightful card game that you can gladly play round after round as it takes about 10-15 mins. Would recommend!" - sassy1415
"Combines vibrant visuals with straightforward yet engaging gameplay. Seamlessly merges charming hand-dawn illustrations with an intuitive color/matching mechanic while offering accessible strategies suitable for casual and seasoned players." - AdamGurski
Note, The icons on cards in the final version have been updated to be more recognizable. This is why the renders on this page appear slightly different than the photos and videos.
