Rick bought this cute boardgame, Wasabi to add into his repertory. He is a boardgame geek (shhh.....) and he owns like 70 boardgames!!! (O_O)!! But no monopoly! Hehehehehe

Wasabi, the name so cute, and the game itself is also very cute. Basically, in a nutshell, players compete to make different type of sushi to earn points. The first person who manages to finish making 10 different types of sushi wins the game.

See, got menu somemore!

The sushi mat

And these are wasabi cubes!

The ingredients

Sushi anyone? Order, order!

How to play (in very brief summary):

This game is for 2-4 players

1. Each player draws 3 recipes (of whatever difficulties you wish) and slip them into the slots in your Screen i.e. the menu so other players would not see what you having.

There are 4 different types of recipe to choose from, 2, 3, 4, and 5 combination of ingredients. E.g. if you choose 5, that means you need to collect 5 ingredients (as stated in the recipe) from the ingredients pile. The longer the recipe, the higher the points you will earn towards your winning score.

2. At your turn, place one of your ingredient on the sushi mat until you complete the set. (Just like playing Scrabble lah)

3. If you completed the set in style, meaning in the exact order as per the recipe then you get a wasabi cube.

4. All player need to complete 10 recipes and whoever completed first wins.

5. If the mat is full before a player manages to complete 10 recipes, the game ends immediately. The player with most points wins. In the event of tied, the winner is the tie player with the most wasabi cubes.

Of course, there are also other elements that help spice up the game, e.g some special cards that you can take to give you special actions.

How to play? I just keep thinking how to make the sushi with the card????

Doreen said...

I simply too lazy to explain I guess. My bad. I will try.

Hehehehe, of course not really like rolling them up into sushi. Think of it like playing scrable where you place your ingredients on the sushi mat. I will try to put up a quick explanation later.

emotionalistic said... cute. I learn something new today. So you put the whole chunk of wasabi cube on the sushi card? Isn't that too much wasabi for a sushi :P.

MisSmall said...

Those wasabi cubes look SO cute! I don't think I'll be able to finish this game without taking many "sushi breaks". :P

jezalmy said...

Oh like this. Now I know how to play the sushi game. one thing i sure that before start I must fill up my stomach first else I will hungry during the sushi game....(can see n touch but cannot eat T_T)

Doreen said...

Hahaha, it definitely will be in real life. No lah, the wasabi cube you just keep it in the dish as you earn. The cubes give you bonus point in the end.

Exactly my thought! Never play while you're hungry!

Hahaha, true loh. They should be a warning on the box "Play only when you are not hungry" LOL
