What is Sweets Stack?

Sweets Stack is a competitive puzzle game where your goal is to overfill your opponent’s candy buckets first while cleverly placing candies into your bucket to prevent it from overflowing.

Each round you will start with a new candy bucket sheet. Players will be passing around candy cards and each player must mark the shape of the candy they receive in their candy bucket sheet. If you plan well and stuff your candies efficiently you will be able to put many candies in your bucket. Each candy you successfully put in your bucket will score you points.

After three rounds, each player adds up their total score, and the player with the highest score wins!


On the Halloween night, Jack prepares lots and lots of candies for children that visit him. “You can take as many as you can fit in your bucket” says Jack, and makes the kids play his game of candies. Tonight the kids will learn that there “friends” next to them are “threats” and “obstacles” that they need to pass by. Jack is waiting for the moments when a small demon is born within the hearts of these innocent looking children.

Jack now dressed as a pumpkin ghost was once a prodigy but spent his life playing tricks on people. As a punishment for his mischief, his soul couldn’t make it to heaven nor hell and is still wondering in this world, looking for children to become his “friend”…
