Challenge: Day 27/30

Day 26 of the 30 days, 30 ideas challenge where I create 30 ideas for games over the next 30 days. See other days here.

Salad wars

Now a silly prototype!

Game type: card game, 1-4 players, kids

Length: 5 mins / round


A mini game where players have to match 4 cards together to get the winning set. 

Four types of cards – salad, meat, cooked meals, animals (herbivore, carnivore, human/omnivore).

Players get points by matching all the same, all different, with a bonus if they also have the correct animals.

Winning combos in order:

3 of the same with the correct animal

3 of the same without the correct animal

2 the same with the correct animal… Etc

Order of play is:

Deck is placed on table. 

Players pick up one card each turn either from the deck or from another player (randomly).

Players must discard a card if they have more than 4. 

If the deck runs out the discard is shuffled and makes a new deck.

Game ends when one player has a full set.

Alternative rules: game ends when all players have 4 cards.

Card ideas:

Salad – lettuce, leaves, potatoes

Meat – cow, sheep, pig

Cooked – hamburgers, cheese, cake

I was thinking of having cooked as unhealthy previously… Could also be omnivore to fit in with the theme, winner then would be omnivore + 3 different types of food (fruitivore??)
