From the publisher's website:

A modern classic, Barbarossa is a great game for family and friends! Enter the fantastic world of this casual riddle-solving game. Share laughs with your friends or family as you create and master riddles! First, each player forms objects out of clay. Since the item is a riddle, your clay figure will only show rough contours. So there's no need to be an artist when you mold the rough shape of a dinosaur or a bug! When you solve a riddle, you are rewarded with points. You can also earn points when your riddle gets solved, but only if it's not too easy and not too hard! You earn bonus points if your riddle is solved in the middle of the game, but you lose points if it is answered early (too easy) or late (too hard)! Earning points is the key to victory, so put your thinking cap on and mold your best riddles in the clay of Barbarossa!
