Cerealbar 2 Rules.

This game is a research project to study human-human interaction and natural language processing (NLP). It is a followup to this study.

Game Objective

The goal of the game is to collect as many unique sets of 3 cards as possible. Note: this isn't a competition!! The follower and the leader work together.

Unique Sets



This unique set contains:


Each card has a color, a shape, and a number (1-3) of occurrences of that shape. A unique set is one in which each card has a different color, shape, and number. When a unique set is collected, the 3 cards disappear from the board and are replaced with 3 new cards.

Game Over

The game is over when the number of turns runs out.

The Leader's Turn

The Follower's Turn

Live Feedback

The leader can see the follower's moves as they play. The leader can provide feedback to guide the follower by making use of the live feedback UI.

Follower Feedback UI



This game is structured to reward cooperation. The leader can see the entire board, but can only move 5 moves per turn. The follower can move twice as far, but the follower's view is clouded with fog and only first-person. Cooperate to get a higher score!
