How to play
Place all the sticks on the table and agree on a starting point. Taking turns, the children roll the color die for stick choice. For example, if the red colour rolls up on top, everyone with a red stick may place one on the board. If a color runs out, roll again. When the die shows the Hape logo, the players can choose any piece. Completely fill the path. There is no way to "win" in this game since the goal is simply to fill the path.
The sticks are distributed so that each child has an equal number of sticks and colours. There may be extra sticks that are not used. Agree on a starting line and a finish line. Take turns rolling the colored die for stick color choices. As players run out of the coloured sticks, when they roll that colour on the die, they skip a turn. When playing on corners multiple shorter sticks can replace the longer colored sticks. The first child to use up all of their sticks is the winner.
