making a statement, a player must use a card with an appropriate
idea on it, relating it to another idea-card, and label
the new card with the next sequential cube (number side up)
a colored square of the same color as the one related to.
asking a question or making a request a player must speak
right after the relation in question (in "Challenge")
and record the challenge by turning the cube labeling
the relation so that the "C" side is up. A Challenge must
done in the move
following the relevant relation.
An idea-card cannot be related to unless it has been "opened".
A card is open if it is labeled and unrelated, or has a
sequential cube with the "P" or "O" face up.
To open an unlabeled card a player labels it with the
next sequential cube and a square of an unused color.
To open a card that is labeled and related a player
turns the sequential cube to the "P" side (Permit).
To open a card that is Challenged a player turns the
sequential cube to the "O" (Okay).
If a relation is Challenged for triteness and talk
of it goes nowhere a second player may turn the relevant
cube to the
blank side, unlabeling the idea-card.
If more than three people are playing then no player
may make two consecutive moves; no player may Permit a relation
if they labeled either of the idea-cards involved, and
may Okay a card that they labeled. Starred rules describe
