How to play Sushi Go! Express Tutorial (English) Board Game -Games On Board-
Imagine you are at an Asian restaurant where
the food plates go on a conveyor belt like the ones at the airport. You’re starving,
but you can only grab a plate when it comes within your reach. What’s more, your favorite
dish might not even be served today, or it’s possible that someone at the beginning of
the belt will grab it before you do. In fact, the cook’s a bit absentminded and completely
oblivious to your wishes. He delivers food in three rounds following no order whatsoever.
On a single plate you might get 1 maki, or 2, or 3. A Dumpling. Dumpling?? But that’s
a ravioli! *SIGH*
A complete disaster. Perhaps you wanted sashimi, but having just enough time for a quick lunch,
you might have to pass on this one and gobble down anything you can.
So combine food plates in the best feasible manner to get the most points possible.
According to the number of players, each player receives 10 cards when 2 play, 9 when 3 play,
8 when 4 and 7 when 5. The game lasts 3 rounds and it follows a draft
dynamic, in which each player plays a card from their deck and passes the rest to the
next player. In each round of Sushi Go!, players play a
card face down from their deck and simultaneously reveal them. These stay face up till the round
ends. After playing a card the players pass their
deck to the person sitting at their left and the process is repeated. The round ends when the cards run out. Then
the points are added up. In our video review you can download these
scoring cards we designed to help you keep track of points.
Once the round is finished, the cards are discarded and new cards are drawn. 3 rounds
are played. There are 8 types of cards.
For every 2 tempuras, you’ll get 5 points. For every 3 Sashini, you’ll get 10 points.
Dumpligs, give you points exponentially. 1 dumpling scores 1 point. 2 score 3. 3, 6.
4, 10. and 5 or more dumpligs score 15 points. There are 3 types of nigiri.
Egg worth 1 point. Salmon worth 2 and Squid worth 3.
If you combine a nigiri with a wasabi by first playing the wasabi then the nigiri, the value
of that nigiri triples. Once a wasabi is used you can’t reuse it or
exchange the nigiri on it for a different one.
In fact, if you play a wasabi, the next nigiri you play, has to go on the wasabi.
There are 3 types of maki roll cards. Cards with 1, 2 or 3 rolls.
The maki rolls don’t score on their own. You have to be the first or second player with
the most rolls at the end of the round to get 6 or 3 points, respectively.
Puddings are like the maki rolls. However, the player with the most puddings gets 6 points,
and the one with the least loses 6 points. But don’t worry, they only score at the end
of the last round, so don’t discard them between rounds. Hoard them on the table until the
end of the game. The Chopsticks are very different.
They are not worth any points and you can’t use them in the turn you play them.
On a turn you play and place them face up and on a later turn you use them.
What they allow you to do is play 2 cards in one turn.
Play a card like you normally would and yell out Sushi Go!,
then play another card and return the chopsticks back to the deck in your hand
so that it continues going around for other players to use.
Well, thats it, enjoy your meal. That was our Express tutorial for Sushi Go!
