The first round will give you example, the instruction to tap the numbers in descending order. If you do so, the boxes disappear. Once the field is blank, you have mastered the level and it goes to the second rule. This could pretend to resolve only blue objects and creatures you for example. You do as commanded you, but quickly realize that you have not swept with the second statement, all fields in the plan. Now your memory comes into play, for in the Rules!
