The rules for this game are very simple, each player is dealt no more than 5 cards, and each player must do one of 4 things; play an action card, play an object, use an object that was already played, or discard an object. You keep playing until you’re the last person standing with cards either in hand or on the table. And with only 23 cards it allows for fast paced gaming from 2-11 players.
