Earn the most points by collecting by collecting ladybugs.
The game board is a coordinate grid. At all times, the board is populated by ladybugs and fireflies. To the left are the transformation tokens used to move the triangle around the board and collect bugs. In the center is the action bar used to build your transformations.
Begin the game by customizing your triangle. The triangle is your game piece, used to collect bugs from various parts of the game board. Drag any vertex to adjust the shape of the triangle. Drag the triangle interior to move the triangle on the grid. When you are finished, click Submit Triangle.
On your turn, build your transformation to move your triangle. Your goal is to capture as many bugs as you can. The fireflies dilate your triangle, making the triangle bigger for every firefly collected. The ladybugs earn points when captured. Each ladybug is initially worth 100 points. With each dilation of the triangle, the point value of the ladybugs doubles. For example, after two fireflies, the triangle dilates twice, so the ladybugs are worth 400 points each.
Each transformation token in your bank performs a single transformation. The choices are as follows:
- x-Translate: Translate (slide) your triangle right or left by some number of units.
- y-Translate: Translate your triangle up or down by some number of units.
- Rotate: Rotate (turn) your triangle some degrees clockwise (CW) or counterclockwise (CCW) about a point.
- Reflect: Reflect (flip) your triangle over a line.
Drag the token for the transformation you want to the action bar in the middle. A settings window will automatically open to set the parameters of your transformation. You can add as many as four transformations in a single turn. If you want to change the settings of a token after its been added, click on that token to reopen the settings window. You can also remove transformations from the action bar by dragging the tokens back to your bank. When you have finished building your transformation, click Go! to perform the transformation(s).
Play alternates as players transform their triangles and collect bugs. Once a token is used in an action, it is removed from your bank. The game ends either when one player has used all the tokens in the players bank or when both players have had 5 turns.
