Description

The game is composed of 54 beautiful cards in a full color tuck-box. You can play our strategic game based on the card colors or play any standard 52-cards game using the top left logo.

The artwork was hand drawn by French illustrator Fran6co (Francis Collie).

How to play

Each player receives 6 cards, the deck is put at the center of the table and the first card is removed to start the discard pile. The goal is to collect 4 cards of the same color to form a « lab ». The first player who forms 3 labs wins.

At the beginning of a turn, the player chooses to take a card from the deck or to take the first card of the discard pile. At the end of the turn, he can only keep 6 cards in his hand, the rest has to be discarded.

To spice up things, some cards have more than one color, and special cards permit to take any scientist from the discard pile, steal 2 scientists from an opponent’s lab (the lab is destroyed and the remains return in the opponent’s hand) or make an exact copy of a scientist.
