Quick Take: Kids lose their minds over this party game which is basically spoons meets dodgeball. Speed collect three matching cards and throw some plush burritos at each other. I can't adequately describe how much I hate this game. An overexcited 8 year old threw a burrito in my face within 10 seconds of playing the first time. Not my jam. But if you have a few overexcited kids who can play it together without destroying the room they're in, then it is a fantastic choice. Created by the makers of Exploding Kittens, who seem to specialize in games that delight my oldest son and cause me to question my life choices.
How to Play: You win if you get the most points. You gain points by collecting three matching cards and placing them in your score pile, these are worth 1 or 2 points. You lose points by getting Burrito Bruises after a battle. Battles are initiated by rapidly drawing and discarding cards until you have a set of three burrito cards. At this point you get to yell out the name of your battle: Brawl, War, or Duel. These are just different manners in which people throw burritos at each other. Chaos ensues. Play until all six burrito bruises have been handed out and then tally up the score. The winner of a round gets a Fear Me Badge.
Variations: They have official variants for two player games, how to play in a small room, and how to incorporate two decks if you want to play with up to 12 players.
