Like the Japanese masters, the players make strategic moves to reach their opponent's camp. There's lot of strategy in this game where you advance step by step.
To win the game, you must be the first to reach the opponent's temple with one of your three "kokeshi" figurine. At the begining, each figurine have 2 beads. The bead of the top of each figure allows him to cross a line of the same color...
In your turn, you can:
-move one of your figurines and pass to an other figurine the beads you used, one by one
-just pass a bead from the top of a figurine to another figurine
-make jump one of your figurine up another if its has no bead on it!
