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.
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.
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??)
