A Poetica egy nagyszerű társasjáték, 3 - 4 játékos részére, az átlagos játékidő rövid, csak 30 perc. A játékmenet erősen épít a ceruza-papír mechanizmusra.

In Poetica, players will compose poems using the illustrations of the Decktet as the source of inspiration for the nouns, verbs, and adjectives of a three-line poem. Then, players will award style points to the other players.
First, you will receive six cards, arranged in a row. You must compose a line of poetry, using some aspect of the illustration from each card as the source for one word. You may make free use of conjunctions, prepositions, article, pronouns, forms of "to be" and forms of "to have". After your line is complete, players rotate seats; you will then write the second line of your poem in the same way with the new set of 6 cards now in front of you. Players rotate seats one more time to write the third line of their poems, and then execute scoring.
You will distribute 5 points among your favorite poem(s), and then evaluate the 6-card row for which you did not compose a line, awarding 4 points among the players for the best line(s), and 1 point for the best use of each card.
The player who receives the most points has composed a poem for the ages!
