The instructions read as follows:

"Turn to match the right color fitting into once circle. Each circle has four portions that you can move.

"Simply turn the circle, then you can exchange the portion with another circle in order to have one circle with the same color.

"A more complicate skill is to play it with numbers showing. Turn and match the correct numbers indicated."

See the third image for a little diagram of the numbering system. I have no idea if the numbers are printed on the back of the puzzle or not.
