Chains presents a board full of multi-colored links. Players rotate them to form chains of three or more same-colored links. As the chains disappear, additional links drop down to adding the possibility of new combinations forming that score extra points! Some bonus links multiply points earned while others serve as \"wild links\" that can be joined with links of any color. As players clear links from the board, a meter on the side of the screen fills; when it hits the top, the level ends and the next challenge begins.
