Aim of the game

Miner Willy, fresh from striking it rich in Manic Miner, has held a massive party in his new mansion. His housekeeper, Maria, has taken a dim view of the revellry and finally puts her foot down: she will not let him go to bed until he's collected all the glasses from around his house!
