Score Points to Win: After players have placed all of their flasks, a new Event Card is revealed and players collect their flasks to begin the new round. The player with the most health points at the end of the game wins!

Build Your Cell: Players collect Cell Component cards, like enzymes and hormones, that exchange molecules for health points. Players can choose Goal Cards, which give players boosts for building certain Cell Components.

Claim Your Place: Players take turns placing one of their flasks on an open organelle to either collect molecules or to convert them into more complex molecules. Once a flask is placed on a spot, other players cannot place their flask there for the remainder of the round!
