Each player takes turns drawing one card  at a time.  After each card they draw, they place the card in one of the four empty rectangles on their game sheet.  Each player continues drawing in turn until all players have four cards placed in all four spaces on their game sheets.

In this example player 1 has placed his cards on his game sheet in the spots pictured below.  Player 1 will then write their multiplication statement on their paper and solve it. The correct answer that player 1 should write down on his paper for this round would be 8/15 (eight-fifteenths).
