At the start of a race, each player secretly bets on two of four animals: turtle, rabbit, sheep, and duck. One animal is chosen at random for each player.
Then players must choose one of their cards from their hand of 6 to place face down (possibly the same animal) as an additional bet.
Players then take turns laying down 1-4 cards, with all cards needing to show the same animal, then refilling the hand to five cards.
As soon as seven total cards have been played or four cards of any one animal, the movement phase starts where each animal has a distinct characteristic that players can use to their advantage to win the round and score.
After three rounds, the player with the most points wins.
