Simplified rules:

Taking turns the player with the highest score wins. Each turn consists of three rounds. The player slides all available pucks down the board aiming for the slots. After the first and second round, all pucks that did not go into a slot are returned to the player, the pucks that went in the slots should be stacked in the back of the slot.

After the third and last round the pucks in the four slots are totaled using the following scoring system.

Each puck is counted at face value until the player gets a set (1 puck in every slot) a set doubles the score for those 4 pucks (2+3+4+1=10×2=20) Getting as many sets as possible greatly improves your score.
