The leader issues instructions and the player does the actions as quickly as possible. Play for 2 minutes and then change, taking turns to be the leader. If there are more players, the player who completes the actions first wins a point and the one with the most points at the end wins. If there are lots of players, the last one to perform each action can be out so that the winner is the last player left.
