The play area is divided by a horizontal line and contains two halves: at the bottom is your area and at the top, the area of your opponent.
At the bottom left are your 3 hand cards and above that, the draw pile (indicating the remaining number of cards). 10 random cards are removed before the game (Quickstart variant).
Each player has 4 columns of different length (blue, pink, brown, green), where collected animals cards are placed respective of their color (the cards are displayed there in a reduced version). Under the present Quickstart variant are already 4 cards placed there.
Above the toucan on the right are 4 small bonus cards. In the bottom right corner is the overview card for scoring.
Scoring is displayed above/below each column with a current total on the right.

Possible actions are displayed with blue and red markings.
Play or give away a hand card:
If it is your turn you have to ...
... play a hand card in the fitting column of your play area. Take care: Duplicate animals in a column are not allowed. In that case the duplicate cards (hand card and column card) have to be discarded immediately.
... give away a hand card to your opponent.
Given away cards: If you get a card from the opponent you have to place it at the beginning of your turn. If you don't place the card you have to discard a matching column card or a card of your choice from an adjacent column instead.
Afterwards you complete the standard turn as normal.
Full column: If a column is full the cards get removed and stored as a face down pile (above the rightmost hand card). At game end you score points for that pile. The player can continue collecting animals for that column.
Bonus cards: The first player to make a full column, gets the bonus card in that color. There is only one bonus card for each color.
Draw Hand card: At the end of the turn the Hand cards will be filled automatically to 3.

Under the present Quickstart variant the game ends immediately if a player has completed 2 columns, and thus has 2 piles. Otherwise, the game ends immediately when the last card from the draw pile is exhausted.

Scoring: For each column you get points according to the overview card (ex. for 4 cards you get 10 points). The bonus cards count as their value.
The player with the most points will win the game!
