This April Build a Sweet Business in Juicy Fruits

A new tile laying, business building game arrives this Spring

Juicy Fruits (Deep Print Games/Capstone Games)This Spring Deep Print Games and Capstone Games are teaming to release a new family friendly tile laying game. In Juicy Fruits, players will compete to collect and ship delicious fruits as they also build businesses across their island home. The game is for one to four players, ages 8+, plays in around 20 to 30 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $39.95 when it hits stores in April.

About the game:

You have a small island paradise where you grow delicious fruit, and you want to supply ships with fruit and add businesses to your island so that your place is better than everyone else’s.

Your turn in Juicy Fruits works like this: First, you slide one of your fruit collector tokens a number of unblocked spaces and collect that many fruits of the token’s type: banana, orange, lime, pomegranate, or mangosteen. Then you may either fulfill the order of a ship on your shores or claim a business from a shared display and place it onto your island (or do nothing). Clever planning and timing is vital because until you supply the ships on your shores, they block valuable island space which could be used to collect more fruit — but if you concentrate too much on the ships, the most promising businesses may get snatched by your opponents. Also, the sooner businesses are claimed, the quicker the game might end.

With each play, Juicy Fruits poses new puzzles of how to move your tokens efficiently and how to balance clearing your island with claiming businesses. The game also includes an additional “juice factory” mode and four modes of solo play.
