The aim of the game is to place your pieces on a Scrabble- like playing field.
The players draw 3 tiles with values from 0 to 15 printed on them, face down. After the game has started, the players try one after the other to create so-called sets of these values. The value 15 must never be exceeded when adding up adjacent pieces. In addition, no more than three stones may be in a row. The players try to reach exactly the value 15 when laying out, for which they get bonus points, they also get bonus points for laying out all three stones at the same time. The players get normal points by adding up all newly created sets, regardless of whether they complete another player's or place their own set. It is important to ensure that a player does not lay out a new set without adjoining other sets. The fields on the game board hold additional bonus points. When a player has ended his turn, he draws as many stones as he has placed face down. In the end, the winner is the one with the most points.
