The goal: Be the first player to collect 5 different sea creatures (out of 6).

*If a player picks up a seaweed card, they must put one of their creatures on the discard pile.
*If a player picks up a jellyfish card, they must trade one of their sea creatures for one sea creature from another player.
*If a player picks up a dolphin card, the next player’s turn is skipped.
*When one player has 5 different sea creatures, the game is over.
