Danny from ZiaComics.com teaches us how to play Sushi Go!
Sushi Go! is a super-fast sushi card game. In this game you are eating at a sushi restaurant and trying to grab the best combination of sushi dishes as they whiz by.
Score points for collecting the most sushi rolls or making a full set of sashimi. Dip your favorite nigiri in wasabi to triple its value! And once you’ve eaten it all finish your meal with all the pudding you’ve got! But be careful which sushi you allow your friends to take. It might be just what they need to beat you!
Sushi Go! takes the card-drafting mechanism of Fairy Tale and 7 Wonders and distills it into a twenty-minute game that anyone can play. The dynamics of “draft and pass” are brought to the fore. The rules are kept to a minimum.
As you see the first few hands of cards you must quickly assess the make-up of the round and decide which type of sushi you’ll go for. Then each turn you’ll need to weigh which cards to keep and which to pass on. The different scoring combinations allow for some clever plays and nasty blocks. Round to round, you must also keep your eye on the goal of having the most pudding cards at the end of the game!
Sushi Go! is very easy it is to teach to anybody. It incorporates “drafting.” Drafting is when you have a hand full of cards and you select one while passing the rest of them. You continue doing this until you have a pile of cards that you have selected. If you ever have a question the cards themselves will generally answer it. All of the scoring information is printed on the cards.
