Review:
Each card has a pinball and four bumpers - red, yellow, green and blue with a number between 1 and 50. The pinball, either large or small and one of the four colors.

Four cards are placed face up in a diamond shape. The "starter" card is then placed in the middle. The pinball on the starter card determines which card to look for next. If the pinball is small and yellow, players must find the lowest numbered yellow bumper. The pinball on the card with the lowest yellow number determines the next color and number (highest blue number for example) and so begins the sequence. Follow the ball from bumper to bumper to figure out which one is the "final" card in a sequence.

The first player to identify the final card in the sequence signifies so by tapping it. Once the other players agree the sequence is correct, the card is removed from play and placed face down in front of the person who was first to correctly identify it. The next round begins by moving the original starter card into play and drawing a new starter card from the top of the deck. Played in a series of rounds, the first player to collect six cards is the winner.
