How to Play
Each player gets a set of the same colour cards with the key signatures written on them, puts it in front. Players roll a die to determine who goes first. The board is placed in the middle. Each passenger car represents a key signature with the accidentals and their total number listed. One player rolls her die, counts the dots, finds a passenger car with the same number of accidentals and covers it with the corresponding key signature card. For example, rolling number 4 will cover a red passenger car with 4 sharps or purple passenger car with 4 flats. When the player rolls 5, one covers the red no-accidentals car with C Major card. When the player rolls 6, she rolls again. Note that you cannot cover the same passenger car more than once. The game ends when all the passenger cars are covered except the passenger car with the number 6.
Winning the Game
The winner is the person who covered most of the passenger cars.
