Everyone wants them: the juicy, colorful, freshly ripened tomato rarities that can be acquired throughout the extraordinary and glamorous Tomatomats. Try to use the coins on the appropriate Tomatomats; but don’t use them too obviously! And for God’s sake: watch out for the hungry thieves who don’t hesitate to steal all coins in order to get the coveted tomatoes for themselves. Fortunately, a couple of cops are whirling around trying to chase the thieves. Who will earn the most tomatoes in this funny and foolish card-game, full of confusion and bluffs, and most importantly… about the beloved tomatoes!
Each player receives 12 cards, which can be coins, thieves, or cops. Each player plays all cards in four columns (face down!), belonging to one of the four displayed Tomatomats – after everyone has played all cards, the cards will be revealed and the effects executed, in this order: Cops remove thieves (of the same color); thieves remove coins (of the same color); coins might bring tomatoes! Only the player remaining with the highest value of coins may receive the corresponding Tomatomat.
The game ends after 3 or 4 rounds (depending on the number of players) – the player with the most Tomatomat-stars is the winner!
