Goal of the game
Playing a round of GUATAFAC
If the answers were given within the time and the GUATAFAC Master accepts them, acting as the supreme judge at that moment, the player who answered keeps the card and earns a point.
If answers are missing, or didn’t come within the 8 seconds, or the GUATAFAC Master deems that one of the answers is just way off, then the player who answered doesn’t earn any points, and the card is set aside.
