Country buttons show who they sailed for. Explorers buttons click and the spin wheel button makes a spinning noise. Have the spinner get the action started by clicking the SPIN button. A clue will appear and have your challenger click the correct explorer. Let the picker click the correct answer or which ever comes from the challenger. Feedback is given for both right and wrong answers. Don't like the bad start you got or did you miss one? The game has a RESET button and if you accidentally click the RESET button, you can always cancel it.
