Could someone please clarify what the correct demonination of color candies out of the 45, for example how many yellow, pink, purple, green, and red.

In ballon cup the color cubes had less per color based on the claim card. Where as in Piñata, there are more candies for the 5 than the 6 and more for the 6 than the 7. It is like 18 purple(5 to claim) 13 green(6 to claim),and 12 red(7 to claim). Is this intentional, or a mistake, is this because of the no exchange rule? Anyway, don't understand why the game was modified so much. Variants would be fine, but to change the game?

Sounds like no, because there are a lot of differences, enough that the two games were initially merged and then split again.

I have the game and here are the contents of Pinata:

Cards:
Yellow: 1,1,2,2,3
Pink: 1,1,2,2,3,3,4
Purple: 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4,5
Green: 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4,5,5,6
Red: 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4,5,5,6,6,7
Wild: 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4,5

Candies:
Yellow: 5
Pink: 7
Purple: 9
Green: 11
Red: 13

Medal cards:
Yellow [requires 3 candies]
Pink [requires 4 candies]
Purple [requires 5 candies]
Green [requires 6 candies]
Red [requires 7 candies]

Note that the # of candies also corresponds to the highest # available in that colour. For example the pink medal requires 4 candies, and the highest card # available in pink is 4.

Thank goodness for this thread. I have just counted my candies and have 18 Purple. I can only assume that the person/machine doing the component drop into the drawstring bag did purple twice (2 x 9). It would have been a different game playing with the incorrect candy balance.

I just found out today that i am missing a red piece! Me and my wife had a tied game with 2 medals apiece, and both of us had 6 red candies. We were both wondering what happens when we get ties!

First game I played of this, most of the game I had 4 yellow cards in my hand and no yellow candies were being drawn until the end of the game! Aggravating...but it kept letting me realize when I was only holding 7 cards, heh.

Must be fixed by now. I can send you a purple or two, if you want to be in the club. Haha

Just opened mine and discovered 46 candies. If anyone desperately needs a red candy, let me know!

I wish I had counted components in my shrink-wrapped copy before attempting my first play!

We were halfway through the game when we realized all the pink candies were missing! We decided to just toss out any pink cards as they came up to finish that play, but looks like I'll need to contact RGG.
