 +Number of Players: 2-8
 +=====Object of the game=====
 +The goal of Trove is for each player to lure potential researchers to their island of information.
 +  * Separate the researcher deck into levels.  Shuffle each level and then place the lower numbered levels on top of the higher numbered levels (ie level 1 cards at the top and level 3 cards at the bottom).
 +  * Shuffle the action deck and deal 5 cards to each player.
 +  *  Shuffle the start card deck and deal 1 card to each player - this is that player's island.  This card remains in front of the player as a reminder of their space on the board.  The other cards are shuffled and placed next to the board.
 +  *  Give the starting player marker to the player with the most results from a vanity search on the internet.
 +=====Turn Sequence=====
 +   - Reveal the researcher card
 +    * If there are no researcher cards left, the game is over and victory points should be totalled.
 +    Reveal the start card. 
 +    * If the start card shows the island belonging to the starting player, discard it and draw another.
 +    * If there are no start cards left, shuffle the discards and redraw.
 +    * Place the researcher marker on the appropriate space on the board as shown by the start card.  The starting space has a star on it.
 +    Proceeding clockwise from the starting player, each player may do one of the following:
 +    * Play an action card from their hand.
 +      *  Move the researcher marker around the board as appropriate.  The marker moves from circle to circle.
 +    *  Draw an action card.  There is a **hand limit of 7 card** maximum.
 +    *  Discard any amount of action cards.
 +    *  Pass.
 +   - The turn ends when-
 +    -   **No player has used an action card in a round**
 +    -   A Timeout card is played
 +    -   There are no cards left to draw (ie they are all in the discard pile or in people's hands).
 +    Give the researcher card to the player whose island is closest to the research marker.
 +    *  If the island us not owned by any player, the researcher card is discarded and not counted.
 +    Pass the first player marker to the player on the left.
 +    If there are no action cards left to draw, shuffle the discards.
 +    * This is the only time that action card discards are shuffled back into the deck.  If there is only 1 card left for the next turn, that will be the only card anyone can draw until the next researcher.
 +    Repeat the steps until all the research cards have been used.
 +=====How to win=====
 +Gain the highest amount of victory points for your island by attracting the best researchers.
