### Tokens

This is about a game I'm making tentatively called "Tokens",. It is for two players but can be played by one in solitaire mode as well...
Pieces:
There are 5 types of tokens in increasing value:

And there are 50 cards; each of one of four types: red, orange, yellow, and green. Here are four example cards:

Each round this card can produce a red token, because it's "Takes" area is blank so it doesn't require any token to operate... Of course if you look at the other example cards some of them do require other tokens to operate, in effect changing a certain number and type of tokens into a different more valuable set of tokens...
So to begin a "Store" of ten random cards is flipped up for each player from the deck... The players will both have a red token from the first card they are given, and they can buy any other red card from their store... they can also sell their original card for a token of the color of the card and sold cards get shuffled back into the deck after the turn. Once they own more cards, they can also use any of the cards they own once per turn to exchange tokens according to the formulas on the cards, and additionally they can exchange 2 red tokens for an orange, 3 for a yellow, 4 for a green at any time... For example they could use the orange card from the example cards to exchange a red and orange token for a green one. Ten rounds of this are played, with the players getting 10 new store cards to choose from each round and being able to use each of the cards they own to exchange tokens once per round... Any unbought store cards are returned to the deck and shuffled... The player with the most blue tokens after the final round wins!
