2) In case of questions (or answers) refer to rule number one.
3) All rocks must be rocks. The referee will inspect all rocks at the weigh-in prior to the game and determine if any are inappropriate for the game to be played.
4) All no-rocks must be no-rocks. The referee will keep an eye on all no-rocks during the game and determine if any are inappropriate for the game being played.
5) Players usually bring five rocks to the game. More (or less) rocks may be played during the game at the discretion of the referee.
6) Players agree on an order of play that will be followed during the game.
7) Each player places a rock on the playing surface in agreed order for each of the first five turns. Each player removes a rock from the playing surface in agreed order for the next two turns (any rock on the playing surface may be chosen for removal). Each player replaces a removed rock onto the playing surface in agreed order for the next two turns.
8) When all rocks are at rest, a source object (often a lit candle) is place on the playing surface by the referee. Following the agreed order, players then have an opportunity to move the source object to a new location. When consensus is reached as to the final location of the source object, the game is over.
9) The referee may (or may not) act at any time.
