In each round you predict the number of tricks you will take. Cards have values 1-13, the Mage is higher than any card, the Jester is lower than 1 and never trump. A trick is taken by the highest card in the colour played first, the highest trump card or the first magic card in a trick. In the first round each player is dealt one card; in each round one card is added, the trump colour is determined by turning up the top card from the draw pile. If this is a Jester the round is played without trump, if the card is a Mage, the dealer determines trump. When all tricks have been played, each correct predictions earns 10 points per trick + 20 bonus points; every surplus or missing trick gives you -10 point penalty. At the end of the round, in which all cards were dealt to players, you win with most points.
This edition comes with special cards - Gestaltwandler, can be played as a Mage or a Jester, plus Fee, Drache, Werwolf, Bombe, Wolke and Jongleur - all for influencing trump color and card strengths.
