The world's first dodgeball card game. Collect cards. Play your hand. Throw things at your friends.
Throw Throw Burrito is what you get when you cross a card game with dodgeball. Try to collect matching sets of cards faster than your opponents while simultaneously ducking, dodging, and throwing squishy airborne burritos. The cards you collect earn points, but getting hit by flying burritos loses them. So clear some space and put away the antiques, because you’ve never played a card game quite like this before.
How it works: Place a pair of burritos on a table and draw cards. Keep your cards a secret. Rack up points by finding sets of three in the deck. Find matches before anyone else does. If someone plays Burrito Cards, a Battle ensues. Steal points from your opponents by hitting them with squishy toy burritos. Declare war on your friends. Some battles only involve a handful of players. Others force the entire table to engage in a Burrito War. Duel to determine the winner. During a Burrito Duel, two players must stand back to back, walk three paces, and FIRE.
What a fun, crazy, whackadoodle game. My 11 year old especially loves it and will often just whack out the burrito and throw it at you without even knowing you are playing which then starts a burrito throwing war. The game is really easy to pick up, with a simple rulesheet, and lots of ways you can mix it up. I recommend having a space that is either large enough to house your crazy family... OR.... make sure the rule of passing it behind you before throwing is in place! Or you may end up with a close call burrito. I recommend this game to all families, colleagues, friends, and arch rivals.
The kids had been bugging me for a while to pick up a copy of this game, so I finally gave in and grabbed us a copy. My kids haven't quite grasped the concept of looking at the card you picked up and QUICKLY discarding an unneeded card, which means I'm often taking cards from the center piles, and it is up to me to tell them who needs to throw the burrito, but this hasn't stopped them from seriously enjoying the game. After all, how often are you encouraged to throw food at your mother...?
