As the newest hires at the local bakery, you have been assigned to work with the hottest selling items - the donuts. Your job is twofold: to arrange the donuts in the display case, and to put together boxes to fulfill customer orders. You’ll also want to make an extra push to sell donuts with sprinkles and coffee, as these can earn you extra cash. Sell your delicious treats better than any of the other employees, and you’ll be walking home with the most money at the end of the day.
In Donut Shop, players will be taking turns placing Donut Tiles in the Display Case, earning points based on how many donuts of the same type are connected. Players then have the opportunity to box groupings of donuts in the Display Case in order to fulfill customer requests from their Order Cards and earn extra money.
Bonuses can also be earned from special orders for coffee donuts with sprinkles. At the end of the game, the player that has earned the most money from their donut placement and order fulfillment wins!
A player’s turn consists of the following actions:
1. Add a Donut Tile to the Display Case
2. Score for donut placement
3. Box donuts (optional)
4. Draw a new Donut Tile and Order Card
