Game in French
You have an invitation at 5:00 p.m. to the Mad Hatter's Garden. The table is ready, the cookies taste like butter heaven and the tea is strong and spicy. "More sugar?" asks the Mad Hatter, giving you a weird look.
"Time is up!" he shouts, interrupting you. Sugar, cookies and millions of hats fly everywhere. Tea spreads all over the tablecloth as it moves forward with a huge smile on his face. "It's time to play a game."
In hats, two to four players compete for the most remarkable hats by exchanging cards in hand with cards on the tea table. Each card exchange influences how each hat is marked. Naturally, at the end of the game, the player with the highest score will be declared the craziest!
To play, everyone draws nine cards. You take your turn by doing one of two actions:
Hat exchange - Play a single card with your hand face up and exchange it with one of the same type (color) of the tea table or exchange it for a card of any type but of a lower value. Add the exchanged tea table card to your collection by placing it face up in front of you.
Create a black hat - Play a single card face down in front of you to add to your collection as a black hat. Each black hat in a player's collection at the end of the game is worth 1 point.
Optional action: At any time during your turn, you can discard a single card of your choice to draw a new one in the deck of cards. In a four-player game, players will exchange cards with their teammates.
END OF SCORE
Hat Collection: Players earn points for hat cards from their collection based on the position of the corresponding type on the tea table tray. If two or more hat cards on the tea tabletop are of the same type, find the hat card of this type with the lowest position on the tea table tray and keep it face up, while turning all other cards of this type face down.
Favorite Hat: Each player reveals the last card in his hand as his type of "favorite hat". Players earn points equal to the sum of all cards in their collection that match the type of their "favorite hat" minus the value of the last card in hand.
The last cookie: There is only one cookie left at the table. Players compete for the cookie by having the most different types of hat cards in their collection. Black hats count like a guy. During the game, pass the cookie to the player who has the most different types of hat cards. The chocolate chip cookie is worth five points at the end of the game.
