to play on. At the start of the game each player is given 12 Shape-Shifter tokens and 1 Warrior King/Queen token. Each players’ King/Queen is placed on the black star in their pie section. Each player places their Shape-Shifter tokens, BLACK side up,
on the white stars in their pie section.

The dice role determines
the number of moves a player can make with his Shape-Shifter tokens. Example: if a player roles a five, then that player may move 5 Shape-Shifter tokens one space each or move 1 token five spaces or 1 token two spaces and 1 token three spaces or any combination
of moves that add up to five spaces.

Moving the Shape-Shifter tokens:
Each star in a players’ pie section is a space that the Shape-Shifter tokens
can move to or through. The black Shape-Shifter tokens cannot move backwards, they can only move forwards toward the CENTER STAR, within the players pie section. A player cannot move his King/Queen Token [Quan] until all Shape-Shifter tokens [Wans], black
or white, are out of their pie section. Shape-Shifters cannot jump, so if a Shape-Shifter token is on a space, another Shape-Shifter token cannot land on it or move through it.
The Red Center star:
When a player moves a black Shape-Shifter tokens through the center star that player has the choice of removing the black Shape-Shifter token from the game or continuing the
move into an opponents pie section. Example: A player roles a 6 and it is only 3 spaces to the center circle; the player can move their Shape-Shifter token two spaces into an opponents pie section or he can remove the Shape-Shifter token from the game. When
a black Shape-Shifter token moves past the center star into an opponent’s pie section it must be turned over so the white side is turned up in the opponent’s pie section. The white Shape-Shifter token is now part of your opponent’s Shape-Shifter
token group. White Shape-Shifter tokens can move in any direction in a pie section, and are removed from the game once they pass through or land on the center star. If a black Shape-Shifter lands on the center star it has to be removed from the board.
STARTING the game:
First, place the playing board on a table; the players sit around
the board. Each player sets up his tokens to start the game. The first player rolls both dice and moves his shape shifter token or shape shifter tokens. Play then moves clockwise.
How to win a game of Quan Wan:
A player cannot move their King/Queen token until all the Shape-Shifter tokens, black or white, are out of their pie section. The first player to land their Warrior King/Queen
