This is a reprint of the popular game: Balloon Cup, but with the original theme from the designer. In Pinata, the players compete in several short balloon flights (hops) to collect the colored cubes associated with each hop. Four landscape cards -- two plains alternating with two mountains -- are laid out, and 1, 2, 3, or 4 cubes in assorted colors (gray, blue, green, yellow, red) are added to these cards. From a hand of eight balloon cards, you must try to pass each landscape by adding cards matching the colored blocks onto their side of table, although winds (and cunning) may occasionally cause them to play on their opponent's side -- a move that can really ruin the opponent's plans. High-valued balloons are played on the mountains, and low-valued balloons are played on the plains. Whoever is the better balloonist takes the cubes from the card, which is then flipped over -- mountains becomes plains and vice-versa -- and refilled with cubes. Five trophy cards of value 3 to 7 are placed at the top of the cards. When a player has collected enough cubes of a given color, he earns the trophy card for that color. Players may even trade three otherwise useless cubes for one they can use. The first player to earn three trophy cards is the winner!.

It is very easy to learn and includes enough strategy that it doesn't feel like just a game of luck-of-the-draw. It's a great game to play if you are looking for something a little lighter than say Dracula or Jambo. I would probably compare the level of depth to Lost Cities but without the trouble of calculating your score at the end.
The components are very well made, just like all Rio Grande Games. It also comes in a very good size box for both travel and convenience.
The theme fits perfectly to the game and is bright and cheerful without feeling childish.
Overall, I already know that this game is a keeper. It's really fun and offers the perfect amount of depth and strategy for a lighter game. It would also be a great game to introduce non-gamers to the wonderful world of boardgames, while keeping seasoned gamers satisfied.
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy the game.
Since Balloon Cup is no longer available, this is an adequate substitute, nice to have 2 player games from Rio Grande. Easy to learn also.
