Target Audience: Children aged 8-15.

The game is played with 4 players. The game is played with 25 square tiles, each with 4 colors. One tile is placed in the center of a shared game board, and each player is given 6 tiles. Each player chooses a color and tries to create groups of four of their color by bringing together four corners of their color during their turns throughout the game.

According to the game rule, each player must place their tile in a way that the corner bearing their own color matches the same color on the previously played tiles. Players do not gain or lose points for forming groups of four of their own colors (aside from forming pairs or triples). They gain points if they form pairs or triples of another color and lose points if they break them. The score of each player is calculated when all players have placed their tiles.

Players try to win the game by keeping themselves and their friends in either the "peace" or "permanent peace" zones, depending on the move they make. There are four different courses on the game board. Players use their pieces on the four different courses as "forward" (toward peace and permanent peace zones) or "backward" (toward the war zone) moves.

While each player makes a "backward" move from their own game board, they can make a "forward" move from another player's game board. In addition, the "letter" stops on the game board provide a "joker" move that can be used by all players.

There are three different decks used in the game. The "rainbow deck" is used when all players are in the "peace" or "permanent peace" zones, the "nightmare deck" is used when any of the players are in the "war" zone, and the "pigeon" deck, which can be won by any player by reaching a piece to the "letter" stop, is used.
