player 10-15 stickers (the exact number we'll let
you decide based on the size of your game boards and
how willing you are to allow for a non winner and
the round to be played again.) These are the ONLY
ways they can mark their boards. Begin by calling
out a call space. If a player has that call space
on their board, they have the CHOICE to either put
a sticker on that space or save their sticker for
a space that they are hoping to use it on. The honesty
comes in when you consider the rule that once a call
space is announced and moved on, the players cannot
go back and put a sticker on the space

that everyone has committed to either placing a sticker
on the space or decided to save their sticker BEFORE
calling out the next call space.
