OM NOM NOM: FOOD GAMES

Many of us have resolved to eat well in 2017. Sadly, that often means cutting back on our favorite foods; but happily, cardboard is low in calories and high in fiber. Sate your cravings with these tasty games!

SUSHI GO!

$12.99, 2-5 players, ages 8+, 15 minutes

Sushi Go! is a lighthearted drafting game featuring the most adorable sushi we’ve ever seen. After the cards are dealt, each player picks a card, passes the remainder of their hand to the next player, then reveals their pick. The players do this until the dealt cards run out, trying to rack up the most points by making sets and taking high-value sushi as they go. It’s ideal for new and experienced gamers alike.

MENU MASTERS

$30.00, 2-5 players, ages 8+, 20-40 minutes

Tired of limiting your menu planning to kale, almonds, and berries? Menu Masters is here to help! You’ll visit the farmer’s market for fresh vegetables, the butcher shop for steaks and lobster, and the bakery for masterpieces such as fudge cake and raspberry tart. Use your resources wisely to buy the best ingredients to craft the highest-quality menus. The fresher the menu, the higher the star value! Whoever has the most stars at the end of the game wins!

Did you know? Menu Masters was designed by local game designers Zach and Jordan Weisman, and published by Redmond-based Calliope Games!

SLAMWICH

$11.99, 2-6 players, ages 6+, 20+ minutes

Who doesn’t love a delicious sandwich? Build your own by flipping and stacking your cards, slapping the deck when a “slamwich” is made. For example if tomato, bacon, and then another tomato, were flipped, it would be time to slap the deck. Whoever gets there first gets the cards; when you’re out of cards, you’re out of the game. Slamwich is an award-winning fan favorite, having sold over one million copies.

FOOD CHAIN MAGNATE

$139.99, 2-5 players, ages 14+, 2-4 hours

If you’ve ever wanted to build a fast food chain without actually building a fast food chain, Food Chain Magnate is for you. It’s an incredibly in-depth game requiring players to compete on a city map through purchasing, marketing, sales, and hiring  decisions. We recommend it for experienced players looking for an immersive experience.
