Each sheet is provided with a speech cloud and shows instructions of the game that may be played. This folder contains 7 different prints colored-in by the artist. Each print comes with 2 extra blank black and white prints, obviously meant for colouring them yourself. This game was designed to be played with other objects or pieces, as stated in Saito’s notes.

Two hundred signed and numbered copies were planned but ONLY circa 20 were made by Takako and sold (hence an early number from the edition). The amount of prints may vary from copy to copy. Fondazio Luigi Bonotto in Colseresa in Italy has a copy (number 5/200) with 8 different prints in its collection.
