How To Play:
1) Select a challenge. I suggest you do the beginner ones if it's your first time. I had a hard time winning that first challenge, it actually took me 3 times. LOL!
2) Setup the crabs and stones on the challenge card to match the start position. Place a stone on any gray position that doesn't have a letter. In my case, I prefer to line up my stones in the start figure then I...
3) Cover each crab and stone with a sea shell. Then I drag it towards the middle which is the four (4) gray circles.
6) When you think you've got it, lift up the shells. If the crabs match the end position - You WIN! Again, I prefer dragging the shells down to the end position, I find it more exciting to see if the color matches or not.
|I didn't show the end-result because I didn't win this game. LOL!|
1) No arc between shells. You can only swap shells along the printed arcs.
2) Don't lift the shells to peak underneath unless you think you've solved the challenge!
For young kids and beginners though, one peek per challenge is allowed. *Wink*
When you're playing, do not give up, if you were not able to solve the puzzle the first time, just reset and give it another try. If you're stuck or feeling crabby, you can check the Solutions page starting on page 4 of the booklet.
By the way, I quoted "Fun" in the title because when I'm not able to do the challenge right, I laugh at myself for being so... nevermind. LOL!
I think by the time I reach the expert challenges, I won't feel relaxed anymore! It just gets harder and harder every time! LOL! I need to play with this often so my mind will get used to this jumbling memory game by ThinkFun! My husband will surely like this because he is very competitive and he doesn't easily give up. Ha! I'll have him try this shell game soon!
