In Faqir players try to make specific patterns with nails (cones) that match with the pattern on a card they have drawn.
The first player to achieve this wins. Each card is partially visible to the other players; use this to spike the fakirs of your opponents!
Taken from the publisher website:
Everyone knows about the faqirs lying on beds of nails, but the ones in this game are not so keen on sharp things – they prefer to squirm between the nails! Who is the first player to place the nails so that their faqir dares to come out from his dressing room to perform? Faqir is a great game for the whole family – all you need is some perceptive skills, light strategic thinking and a pinch of luck!
