How to play
1. Play Nujum Cards
Choose a Nujum Card from your hand and place it face down in front of you. Your opponent chooses a Nujum Card from their hand and places it, face down, on top of your card.
2. Reveal and resolve
Reveal your opponent's Nujum Card first and resolve it by moving the Star Token the number of spaces shown according to its suit. Repeat those steps for your own Nujum Card.
3. Star Token movement
If you can move the Star Token the full number of spaces shown on the card you put that card on top of your score pile. If you can't, your Nujum Card is discarded and the token doesn't move at all.
4. Playing Eclipse Cards
At any point during a player's turn after a Nujum Card has been revealed, you and your opponent may play Eclipse Cards from your hand to influence the movement of the Star Token.
5. Winning the game
The game immediately ends when no more Nujum Cards can be drawn. The winner is the player with the highest sum of numbers in their score pile!
