Fluttering Souls is a 2 player game, made up of 3 - 5 rounds. In each round players take turns collecting butterflies from a partially open layout of butterflies, attempting to limit their rivals next choice as they go. They earn victory points for sets of butterflies. The player that collects the most victory points at the end of a round is awarded a White Butterfly Token; a visit from a lost loved one. The first player to collect 3 White Butterfly Tokens is the winner.
