Child’s Play?

Rada received the Dora Explorer PlayPark board game for Christmas.

There are 3 versions of the game: Easy, Medium, and Advanced. We are currently playing Easy. If the players are older than 3 (as both my daughter and I are) they should be able to do Medium and Advanced but I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how. I went to college and am licensed to drive a motor vehicle in the State of Massachusetts, but the directions seem to be written in some kind of toddler-speak that is gibberish to me.

Was there some critical lecture in pre-school that I missed, something on ‘logical gamemanship for the under 5’?

There is the purple backpack with the small cards, the big square cards that go on the board, and the spaces on the board for Swiper. Somehow the small cards end up in the winning player’s hand, unless Swiper gets to them first. But how?  And what about the big square cards? Am I making this too complicated?

Here is the game that has shaken the foundations of my intellect:
