In Piñata, the players compete to collect the coloured sweeties inside the piñatas. Playing pieces that might otherwise be "cubes" are instead wooden markers with a bow-tie shape that mimics the shape of wrapped sweeties, coming in five different colours. When a player has collected enough sweeties of a given colour, he earns the medal card for that colour, and the first player to earn three medal cards wins!
The players play their cards next to several mats on the table. Players usually play their cards on their side of the mats, but they may sometimes play on their opponent's side, a move that can ruin their opponent's plans.
