Pass the sushi! In this fast-playing card game, the goal is to grab the best combination of sushi dishes as they whiz by. Score points for making the most maki rolls or for collecting a full set of sashimi. Dip your favorite nigiri in wasabi to triple its value. But be sure to leave room for dessert or else you’ll eat into your score! Gather the most points and consider yourself the sushi master!
We're huge fans of eating sushi, so it came as little surprise that we instantly fell in love with this "delicious" sushi-themed card game. Inventor Phil Walker-Harding created a unique and immediately approachable take on card drafting that makes for a game that's easy to learn, quick to play, and yet engaging for all ages. Just like a great meal at a sushi bar, this game will have you coming back for more time and time again!

Most of the cards are self explanatory, with instructions and points detailed clearly on the cards.
I found when only playing with two people, that game can be quite predictable, as its easier to keep track of what cards are in play as they are exchanged each turn (Leaving us to create our own little variant where we would split each hand in half, to help keep some mystery.)
A nice benefit of this game is that it doesn't eliminate other players, so its a great choice for kids, and is especially appealing thanks to its bright colours and cute/funny designs.
Sushi Go! is a set collecting, card drafting game. Each game consists of 3 rounds followed by final scoring. In each round a player is dealt a hand of sushi illustrated cards. Then each player simultaneously chooses a card and passes their hand to the player on the left - this is card drafting and it's a mechanic used in number of more complex games such as 7 Wonders - in fact, a lot of reviews talk about younger players learning the card drafting mechanic here as a stepping stone to playing 7 Wonders. All chosen cards are revealed simultaneously ... and you begin to get a glimpse of which sets of sushi cards a player may be collecting. Also, the card drafting gives a sense of a sushi conveyor belt, just take what you want from what's passing by. Players continue in this fashion until the hands have been played out. The completed sets are scored and two more rounds are played. The player with the most points gained over the 3 rounds wins. A scoring pad was included in the (Zoch Verlag, see below) edition that I own.
The cards are well illustrated pieces of sushi and associated items - e.g. wasabi, chopsticks. The way each set is collected is differed: some reward single, or paired, or tripled cards, others are collected over all 3 rounds, others reward greater numbers, others reward most collected vs. other players, others allow the taking of two rather than one card on your turn (before being placed back into the had for another player to use on their turn). All in all - the set collecting variety works best when there are at least three players, or more, in the game. It's about 15 minutes for us to play out a full 3-round 3-player game.Read more ›
I think 8 is probably an over estimate as to the age group who could play this once you get the concept the game play comes easily and it becomes quite frenetic as you take the card you need then pressure people to move the hands round rather than give them time to think (with your children you won't want to apply too much pressure).
We played this at work one lunchtime and everyone was sold on it.
The quality is excellent and someone said the cards actually had a Japanese feel too them :D
Given the quality of the packaging, the number of cards and the sheer fun this is a good value card game, thinking about it it is also one where you could lose a card or two and it wouldn't detract from the dynamic too much either.
If you're getting together to play something more serious it can be a fun game to start with while people arrive or just to finish off the evening!
It is played over three rounds so you'll need a way of keeping score from round to round (nothing is included for this) but a pen and paper or smartphone will handle this no problem :)
Worth playing with 4+ people for sure
Lovely cards, lovely tin.
The artwork is spot on and appealing for all ages.
It is also a great warmup game for 7 Wonders.
All in all, if you like your boardgames and want to try something different or just want to have a good time, this game is for you! If you just want to have a good time regardless of playing boardgames or not, this is for you.
