Did you know … the most traditional of piñata styles is the star with seven points?
Each cone represents 1 of the 7 Deadly Sins.
And … while the sole objective is to get to the candy … the game is actually riddled with all kinds of symbolism.
The blindfolded player with the stick represents faith trying to destroy evil … (faith is blind, right)?
The piñata symbolizes hope (hanging over our heads … looking up to the heavens with anticipation).
Finally, the smashed piñata represents charity … (as it rains down with candy for everyone)!
What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s role?
Well … nothing really.
