Gameplay in Brief:

Dweebies are cute creatures and one of the reasons this card game is so entertaining. Players begin with a hand of five Dweebies, and each turn could not be simpler: play a card and draw a card. The card interacttion makes Dweebies shine as a children's game.

When you place a card next to another Dweebie, if it and a matching card are both at the end of a row or column, you collect those two cards and every card in between to score at the end of the game. The player who collects the most Dweebies wins. The strategy is not deep, but it is more than enough to keep children and adults thinking while they have fun.
