The board represents the material world in which the living beings (jīvas) are conditioned. The goal of the game is to collect all four Bhakti cards and reach the Supreme Lord, and thus be free from material existence.
There are various spaces on the board representing favourable and unfavourable situations and qualities that need to be either accepted or avoided.
By landing on the spaces on the board, players get the opportunity to answer questions based on the Bhagavad-Gītā as shown on the Jñāna Cards. If they get the answer correct, then they can pick up a Bhakti Card.
When all four different Bhakti Cards (conch, lotus, discus and mace) are collected, then the player proceeds to the lotus leaf and surrenders to the Lord.

Collect all four Bhakti Cards
“I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad-Gītā. It was the first of books; it was as if an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence which in another age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson –
