There are no turns in the game. All of the players will play at the same time. Once the fan starts up all of the players will try to catch pigs with their wand.

When you catch a pig with your wand, you will remove your wand from the dome. Take any pigs you caught and add them to your cloud card.

Catching pigs with your wand

You will then insert your wand back into the dome to try and catch more pigs.

Should you ever catch a white pig, you will have to return all of the pigs you collected so far in the game. Open the top slot of the dome and drop all of the pigs from your cloud card into the dome.
