Move all of your pawn pieces from the Start circle to the Home circle by navigating through the squares on the game board. Move by drawing cards from the deck, which instruct the player on how many spaces to move. A Gomen-nasai card lets one of your pawns in the Start circle knock an opponent back to their Start circle and take its position. Some cards have special properties such as 2 for draw again, 4 for moving backwards, and 7 for splitting the move between two pawns. The player who gets all of their pawns to the Home circle wins. Use slides around the board to slide additional squares and knock any pawns on the slide back to their Start circle.
