This game looks lame, but as the box says, 'Its good clean fun." Get it clothespins... clean... too funny. Well the game goes like this:
4 cards, 3 starting posts, you can place cards down in any type of pattern...
All shirts, all, pants, all same fabric...
As you go around you try to get as many as you can on each clothes line and then put the other end on it to finish the clothes line. Only playing up to four cards from your hand (or discarding them for better ones... can't do both)
The trick is that there are birds... my kids like to make sound effects, they say, "Tweet, Tweet!" and swoop down and take a piece of clothing from your line and put it on theirs. no clothes are protected unless you have both poles up. Its an exciting, risk taking game that my strategic mind can't figure how to win again a 5 year old.

Here's a 20 minute game for 2-5 players. Play starts with 5 cards per person. On your turn draw two and place up to three cards in front of you. The object of the game is to get three sets of properties. There are action cards that allow you to "steal" another player's property or set and wild cards to help you. You can also demand rent from the other players, as well as pass go, which gives you the opportunity to draw two, or simply place money in your bank.
The directions state, "Start playing and it'll all become clear."
I would have to agree.
