So I'm wondering just how I missed the following news, and has to stumble upon an entry on bgg for the game whilst looking for something else!
At my first UK Games Expo last year I think my find of the show was the card drafting, set collecting game Sushi Go!
It's a delightful, very thematic, little game. The card drafting captures the experience of a sushi bar so well. Select your dish (card) and pass the rest of the cards in your hand to the next person, and repeat. It simulates the conveyor belt plates of food in these sushi bars so well.
So when I saw the name Sushi Go Party! on bgg I had to investigate this further. Here is the publishers description of the new game taken from the bgg page.
“Description from the publisher:
Sushi Go Party!, an expanded version of the best-selling card game Sushi Go!, is a party platter of mega maki, super sashimi, and endless edamame. You still earn points by picking winning sushi combos, but now you can customize each game by choosing à la carte from a menu of more than twenty delectable dishes. What's more, up to eight players can join in on the sushi-feast. Let the good times roll!“
Sushi Go Party! Is coming out later in the year. But wow, more players, and the customising of the cards you use! I'm totally in on this one. I can't wait to get my hands on it.
