In the world of the dead, the Death reaps human souls when their lives are to end.
After a long labor, it will (finally) give up its position to a new Grim Reaper who will have followed a meticulous training… 

     You’re a “Little Death”

… and you’re going to get your Reaping Diploma!

Your goal is to be the first player to obtain your Reaping Diploma by achieving 4 of the objectives shown on the game Diploma.
During the game, each player will have characters in their playing area who will be born, grow, age, enrich their personalities or acquire skills that will bring them strengths and weaknesses throughout their lives.

You will see them live and guide them gently on their Deathbed to the liberating Reap. It is by guiding your characters to their “natural death” that you will have the best chance of achieving the objectives required to get your Diploma.
Regarding your opponents’ characters, unlike yours, you will be allowed to reap them as soon as the opportunity shows up. It’s easier, but it’s less rewarding because, in this case, you’ll have to share the won cards with one or more of your opponents.

The characters in your playing area will therefore be targeted by other players.
