Purble Place: rules and basics

Comfy Cakes

Comfy Cakes

This game puts you in Chef Purble's bakery. Your job: to fill an order for a batch of cakes.

The bakery's customers are very particular, so you'll need to make the cakes with the correct combination of shapes, batters, fillings, decorations, and icing. Oh, and work fast because the cakes never stop coming!

Purble Shop

This game tests your powers of deduction. The goal: to make your Purble's face match the mystery Purble behind the curtain. Choose hair, eyes, nose, and lips from the shelves, then learn how many—but not which—features you got right!

Purble Pairs

This goal of this game is to find all the identical pictures before time runs out. Flip a tile to reveal a picture, then try to find its match. Use a "sneak peek" token to get a glimpse of the whole board.
