SECOND CHANCE OVERVIEW
In Second Chance, each player starts with a 9×9 grid that they want to fill as completely as possible. To begin the game, everyone receives a different card with a starting tile and marks off its spaces on their grid.
Every turn, two puzzle tile cards are revealed, and each player chooses one of them, then marks off squares on their personal grid that match the shape of the image shown on their chosen card. Multiple players can choose the same card. If a player cannot fit either revealed shape into their grid, they get a second chance and reveal one card from the deck just for them. If they can fit this shape in their grid, they do continue normally next round; otherwise, they are eliminated from play.
The game ends when all players have been eliminated, the deck of puzzle cards has run out, or a player has completely filled their grid. If someone has filled their grid, they win. If all players have been eliminated or the deck ran out of cards, then whoever has the fewest empty spaces wins.

SECOND CHANCE REVIEW
6 out of 10
All and all, this Second Chance review is a recommend to anyone who likes puzzles and roll-n-writes and a big recommend for anyone who loves Tetris. This game is incredibly simple by design but has enough strategy to keep in fun. As for other games it is kind of like, this has better replayability but slightly worse player interaction.
SECOND CHANCE HOW TO PLAY
You have your own player sheet, which shows four columns of symbols (square, circle, triangle, hexagon), with eight symbols in each column. On a turn, each player draws a card from the deck, then (if possible) you write the number on that card in the column matching the depicted symbol. Big chains mean big points.

SECOND CHANCE FAQ
Who Goes First In Second Chance?
No one. Turns happen simultaneously so there is no need for an order.
In Second Chance, do I need to color in a shape with the colored pencil of that color?
No, the colors are meaningless. They are just a nice way to spruce up the board.
In Second Chance, what are the three reference cards for?
This is to show you overall how many of each shape are available in the pool of cards. This way you can plan probabilities of what might come.
Can I change the position of a piece I have already drawn in Second Chance?
No, once a piece is down it is down.
Can I have more than one “Second Chance” in Second Chance?
Yes. There is only the possibility of one per turn but you can have them multiple turns in a row. You would just keep needing to get saves and move on.
