The 2-4 player card game asks players to visually communicate through the images provided.  The game is about seeing and communicating based on persuasion not winning. By taking turns putting down a card the players create a sequence of images.  The sequence, which usually comes out to look like a web with multiple storylines, becomes a temporary record of the visual dialogue.
