The discovered XYZ exotic hadronic states with two heavy quarks constitute one of the most important open problems in strong interaction theory. In this talk, I show that an effective field theory derived from QCD, the Born Oppenheimer effective field theory (BOEFT), can describe exotics of any composition. I show the results of the coupled Schrödinger equations that describe hybrids, tetraquarks, pentaquarks, doubly heavy baryons, and quarkonia at leading order, including also nonadiabatic terms. Additionally, I also present the results for the predicted multiplets  corresponding to selection rules, and expressions for the nonperturbative gauge-invariant correlators that are the input of the BOEFT: static energies, generalized Wilson loops, glue-lumps, and adjoint mesons that should be calculated by the QCD lattice simulations.
