Short intro
The first card on your left is the Rock & Roll Ride. It is an attractioin in the music theme (see music note on the bottom). This attraction has a popularity of 7 likes (likes = victory points) and will generate income for your park if a value of "8" is rolled with the two dice. The megacoin is the means of payment in Adventure Land. If the value of "8" is rolled, this attraction delivers 7 megacoins (the number of likes can be found on the right). If a player succeeds in attaining a second attraction in the same theme, he will get the VIP card. The second card Daddy Love, is the VIP in the category SciFi. This card will bring him income of another player takes a card in that theme. It is possible to take away a VIP card from another player by having the most attrations in that theme. The value of a VIP card is 5 likes. During the game several actions can be executed, it is possible to employ staff members and there are (secret) assignments. Card number three, the Service King, will deliver likes if a specific condition has been met. Last but not least is the Award card. As soon as this card has been drawn, the game ends immediately, and all players will count up their number of likes with the notepad which has been added to the game box.

Smart mechanics
The jump start creates a really quick start up. The secret assignment cards make sure the winner of the game is unclear till the very end of the game. And last but not least, the end of the game is unpredictable so each game is exciting from the beginning till the end. The smart auction system decreases the level of luck, but still some things cannot be planned completely, although experienced players will learn to plan the use of certain cards, as staff members, exactly at the right moment. Timing is everything in this game.
