In Circus, players send their best artists into the ring to perform an act. If your artist is better than the previous one, then there is a deafening applause which earns the most points.
As it should be, the grand finale follows at the end of the performance, after which the points are counted. The player with the most points is the best circus director and wins the game.
The game is played over 7 rounds. In each round, players use their upgrade cards to place upgrade cubes on their artists. Each different-coloured cube represents a different upgrade (for example: talent, costume, impression,...). When you think your artist is ready, you can send him or her to the ring for a performance.
The success of this performance is based on the upgrades your artist has. Each cube that matches a cube of the previous performing artist is worth 1 point, but each cube that doesn't match is worth 2 points. The spectators like variety after all. In addition, each round the poster cards will determine which kind of artist is worth any bonus points.
At the end of the game, players will send all their remaining artists for one final performance and score extra points based on how good (ie number of upgrade cubes) they are.
