    Players are scholars and scribes poring over (studying, scribbling, erasing, more scribbling) an ancient manuscript. By playing cards to the free-form play area and then placing cubes on them to record their contributions, they hope to have their work be recognized by the Queen at story time.

    Scoring is similar to Acquire, where the person with the most cubes scores the normal value of a card, and the second-most gets half that value. This scoring is triggered when someone plays a card with a low enough rank -- the more workers on a card, the more likely it'll get scored by a particular play.

    The number of workers you place each turn is based on the number of matching suits touched by the card you play. This leads to natural clusters of suits, shaped implicitly by the opinionated nature of the deck.

    When the deck runs out, or a player runs out of workers, or a player reaches 100 points, the game ends with a final scoring round. The player with the most points is the winner.
