Crazy Circus

Players take on the role of the animal tamer whose objective is to be the quickest in finding the sequence of commands to move the three circus animals. Players must loudly dictate the sequence of commands that the animals must do based on the objective card. The first player to find the right sequence of movements wins the objective card. When all the cards have been collected the game is over. The winner is the player with the most objective cards.
