All players start a game of FYFE with the same board. In the course of a game, they decide not only which tokens to use, but also how to score them. In each round, they have the choice of placing one of two tokens. If there isn ´t a scoring board already pointing from the edge of the player board to the token just placed (vertically, horizontally or from one of the two diagonals at the top of the board), one must be placed immediately. Players can choose one of their remaining 15 scoring boards. As soon as a scoring board is completed, it is turned over. Whoever completes a task first receives extra points. Bonus points also await if two, three or even four scoring boards are completed with the placement of a single token.
Good planning in advance and placing the wooden pieces and scoring boards at the right moment are worthwhile in this abstract tile-laying game from Kosch. Lucky charms give the players individual abilities that they can use once in the game. Once all 25 spaces on the board are filled, the game ends. The person who best combined their scoring boards with the drawn tokens will win a game of FYFE.
