Tactical shopping madness for 2 - 4 players.

What's Hamsterkauf?

"‬HAMSTERKAUF"‮‬‭ ‬is the German word for panic shopping‭.

We all know this feeling, ‬the outside world is coming to an end and you are standing in the supermarket with this sudden craving for toilet paper and pasta‭. ‬To not have to be antisocial to satisfy your burning need we‭ ‬created this game for you‭. ‬


It's shopping time! The goal is to get as many products as you can.

The more you get of the same product the more points you can get for it.

Rule 1: Move 1 or 3 squares and take the card you are landing on

If you get trapped and can't move it's the next player's turn.

*You cannot move diagonally

Rule 2: Always keep 1 square social distance to the others

You cannot land on or pass a square next to another player.

You can land on a square diagonally from another player though.

Game End

2-3 players: The game ends when all cards have been taken

4 players: The game ends when only 1 card is left on the board

The player with the most points wins.

The chart below shows how points are calculated.

For example, if you got one roll of toilet paper you get 2 points for it.

But if you managed to get 2 rolls they sum up to 6 points!

Have fun!
