“Sumorals” is a four-player board game about sumo wrestling and placing bets, where the rich get richer and the fat get fatter. Players compete in physical challenges, such as fish-stacking and moving single grains of rice with chopsticks, in order to gain tokens. These tokens are later used to bet on wrestlers in player-to-player combat. The fattest wrestler wins, and the winning player gains their opponents tokens. After competing with all four wrestlers, the richest player with the most tokens wins.
