•There must be one (and only one) of each shape.
•There must be at least one of each color. There will be two of one color because there are only three colors.
•The superbug must be a different color than any of the other microbes.
As you play and solve each puzzle you will have to keep in mind the four shapes and the three colors. The challenge cards show either three microbes in a dish, two microbes in a dish, or one microbe in a dish. The player must use the color and shape rules to figure out the missing microbes. To set up, give each player a set of tweezers and a petri dish, put the large petri dish with the small rubbery microbes in the middle of the playing area, and stack the challenge cards face down next to the large petri dish. To play, turn over the first challenge card so all can see it. Everyone works to solve the puzzle at the same time. The first one to correctly solve the puzzle wins and takes the card. There is also a variation where players can place extra bugs into other player's dishes during the game. Players will have to keep picking these extra bugs out as they play. This sounds like a fight waiting to happen to me. There is also a purple bead (virus) included that players can pass to the person on the left as they play, hoping they are not the one caught with it at the end of the game.
I have to say that I was very disappointed that this game wasn't more difficult, since the age range on the box says 8+. I have used it multiple times in therapy and, as I suspected, it is no challenge for the higher functioning individuals. On the other hand, I have used it successfully (all challenge cards) with individuals with mild to moderate cognitive disabilities who sometimes can start a logic game but not get through very many of the challenges.
