The game has been carefully designed - it is a 'mathematically sensible' version of the game Ghost Blitz (Geistes Blitz) - featured here: https://www.board-game.co.uk/product/ghost-blitz-geistes-blitz/. In Ghost Blitz the objects do not appear the same number of times across the cards. In our version we've fixed that! Find out more in 'The Maths of the Game'.
