Players take turns placing tiles on the board in order to create new sets or add to already established ones. A set is any collection of three or more tiles that are either consecutive numbers with same color or those of the same number with different colors. Players are also allowed to manipulate tiles and utilize wild cards, which makes things even more crazy.
