You have an invitation at 5 pm at the Mad Hatter’s garden.
The table is ready, the cookies taste like buttery heaven, and the tea is strong and spicy.

The Mad Hatter gives you a bizarre look. “Yes pl…”

He interrupts you.
Sugar, cookies, and millions of hats fly everywhere.
Tea spills all over the tablecloth as he proceeds with a huge smile on his face.

In Hats, two to four players compete to acquire the most outstanding hats by exchanging cards in hand with cards on the tea table board. Each card exchange influences how each hat is scored. Naturally, at the end of the game, the player with the highest score will be declared the maddest!

MvM Live Presents Hats


Everyone draws 9 cards. Each player takes their turn by performing one of the following two actions:

Play a single card from their hand face up and exchange it with one from the tea table board while respecting the following conditions:

1A. Both the played and exchanged cards are of the same type.

1B. The number on the played card is higher than the number being exchanged.

Add the card exchanged from the tea table board to the player’s collection by placing it face up in front of them.

Play a single card face down in front of them to add it to their collection.This is considered a black hat. Each black hat in a player’s collection at the end of the game is worth one point.

Optional action: At any time during their turn, players may discard a single card of their choice to draw a new one from the draw deck. In 4 players games, players will exchange cards with their teammates.

End Game Scoring

Players earn points for the hat cards in their collection based on the position of the matching type on the tea table board. If there are two or more hat cards on the tea table board of the same type, keep face up only the card with the lowest plate value, while turning all other cards of that type face down.

Each player reveals the final card in their hand as their “favorite hat” type. Players gain points equal to the sum of all cards in their collection that match the type of their “favorite hat” minus the value of the final card in their hand.

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 as a type. 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.



We are so excited to introduce a new line of games called
Made in Wonderland.

All of the titles published under this line will have a book-like magnetic cover and strong reference to fables and fairy tales we all know and love.

This line will be exclusive to distribution and will pre-release at conventions like GenCon and Spiel Essen.

Not sure what to think yet but I wish you the best of luck. It’s interesting that some of the games are KS and others, like this, are not.


Looking forward to Hats!

Beautiful looking game with interesting ways to score. Can’t wait!

Philip Grant

The game looks amazing, but the rules as you stated them don’t make much sense. but I do love alice and I love card games, so it’s probably a lock from me if the rules make sense and the price is reasonable.


The rules manual indicates that it can be achieved in other languages, however I only find it in English.
I need the rules in Spanish.
Where can I get it?

Hi again Gonzalo, another beautiful looking game as TGG has got us used to! You are one of my favorite publishers 🙂 I continue to say I will try to have the complete collection of your games because their art and the quality of the components are always top notch! Marvellous pieces of joy. The only thing I want to point out about gameplay is that it looks a bit too much like Pot de Vin, so if it wasn’t a game from you and this beautiful I would pass. I just want to be honest and useful 🙂 hopefully… Read more »

The production of this game looks amazing! I might have to try this one out 🙂


At first it looked like Hanamikoji to me, but reading thins helped to understand differences, will follow up 🙂


Looks beautiful. Your productions are always top-notch.


I really like the theme of this game. Fantastic artwork. Reminds me a bit of Parade (that’s a good thing), another game with the Alice in Wonderland theme. Cool box, too.
