Naova players use their cards to fight one another, but the challenge comes in knowing what to play when. Each player starts with a hand of six cards with values 0-4 and some of the cards have special powers that take effect if the card is played during the proper phase in the round. Each player simultaneously reveals one card of their choice to start the round. If only a single player has the highest card, then that player collects all of the cards played. If not, then all tied players reveal two cards of their choice from their hand. Once again, a clear winner collects of the cards that have been played, while tied players play their final three cards to see who wins the whole game. The game ends when the deck runs out. Each card collected is worth one point, while the Naova card is worth 10 extra points. Whoever has the most points wins!
