The board is divided into 36 squares, each square a different colour. Complementary colours are in diagonally opposite corners. The sequence of colour along the rows is a step towards its opposite. For each square there is a disc of the same colour which drops into a recess in the square. The intention is for small children to match each disc with its appropriate square and is designed to introduce them to the idea of colours being part of a spectrum. Once the child masters matching each disc with its 'home' square, the game can be used to explore colour contrasts and our perception of how colour is affected in the context of adjacent colours.
