Fast! Compelling! Simple! Fast because players simultaneously try to fit the tiles in their challenge panel. It's exciting because you can't stop even to cheer. Simple because Ubongo's rules are explained in minutes.
It works like this: each player takes a challenge panel and twelve tiles. A player rolls the dice and flips the hourglass. The symbol on the nut determines the tiles that can be used. Each player tries to fill their challenge panel as quickly as possible with the tiles they have available. The quickest screams: "Ubongo" and can move his pawn on the game plan. Finally, it takes two gems. For others the sand slips away inexorably. They must be able to fill their challenge panel; otherwise, they won't get anything. Who, at the end of the game, has more gems than one color, wins!
Game Item List: 4 Pieces, 72 Gems, 1 Game Plan, 48 Tiles, 36 Challenge Panels (Double Face), 1 Special Nut, 1 Hourglass, 1 Rule Book.
