Yes… Seafood and Spaghetti!

A deadly combination bound to give you a delicious taste of war. At the head of the army stands the great King Crab: commander of vast seafood armies, breaker of chains and inspirational leader in the most dire of times. The ranks of your army consist of a nicely balanced mix of Mighty Mussels, Cunning Calamari, and Shy Shrimps, topped with some Smoking Salmon and Loyal Lobsters. Frutti di Mare offers a wide palet to satisfy every taste. Except vegetarians of course.


In more detail, the players take their turn in a clockwise order. The player that cooks the best pasta starts the game. Each turn consists of 3 phases:

Income Phase (gain coins to spend in de recruitment phase)

Recruitment Phase (buy fresh Frutti to strengthen your army)

Action Phase (move and attack with your Frutti)

In addition, the King Crab can give one inspirational speech each turn with a variety of effects.

There are three possibilities to win Frutti di Mare: Veni, Vidi, Antipasti!:

Reach the center of the plate with your King Crab

Stay at the center of the plate with a Royal Frutti for 1 full round

Eliminate your opponents’ King Crabs.
