Players are Officer yellow or Sailor blue and, taking turns, nuggets are placed, one at a time, building and/or blocking point-scoring rhumb line combinations: 4 same-colour nuggets in a radius is 10 points, an arc 20 points and a spiral 30 points. More than one combination may be scored at a time. Toward the end, and to avoid a foregone conclusion, players remove any one of their nuggets (once only) and, on their next turn, place it somewhere else on the board. Throughout the game, the score is kept on the players’ end of the board and, when the board is full, the player with the most points is the winner.
