Nature/ Type:          A dodgeball card game 

Rating:                     ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Recommended age:  7 year-old ++   

Who would love this: Kids and adults that enjoy chaotic party games (especially one that involves throwing stuffs around - LOL) 

Confession time: “Throw Throw Burrito” by Exploding Kittens “terrifies” me - it’s unapologetically chaotic, extremely messy! It’s the opposite of what I want in life - organised, methodical, orderly neat. BUT life surprises you when you least expect it! 😆 This insane burrito-throwing game has just taken its place as our current favourite game! Thank you VR Distribution for providing this! 

Why I love ❤️ this game: 

(1) Chaotic Burrito-Throwing Card Game

If you haven’t guessed it, this game is not for the fainted-hearted. Be prepared to get active and jump into attack mode! Included are 120 Playing Cards, 2 Foam Burritos, 6 Burrito Bruises, a ”Fear Me Badge”, and Instructions. The aim of the game is to collect as many sets of 3 matching cards (by a series of “drawing and passing cards” actions, simultaneously done by all players). A set of 3 regular cards earn you one point, and a set of “battle cards” earns you 2 points and activates a round of burrito-chucking. Those who got hit get a “Burrito Bruise” which would cause a 1-point deduction. The game is played in two rounds (the winner of the first round gets a “Fear Me Badge”). And let’s be honest: who can resist watching a wild burrito 🌯 flying across the room? 

(2) Quick Game To Challenge Your Reaction Speed

I love that the game doesn’t treat itself (or anything) too seriously. To win this game, a fast reaction speed helps. There are 3 kinds of burrito battles depending on the set a player acquires; Each of the “Brawl”, “War” and “Duel” triggers different attack rules - but all involve throwing a soft and squishy burrito at another. I love that this game forces me to embrace a moment of silliness and forget about tidiness and order! 

(3) Card Games With CUTE Artworks

The two squidgy Foam Burritos with round innocent eyes are the cutest attack weapon I have ever seen. I also love the whimsical artworks and the adorable names given to the goofy characters (eg “MeowCow”, “LickyChicky”, “FloatyGoaty”). 

(4) Game With Organised & Sturdy Game Box

The most ironic thing is, despite the chaotic nature of this game, the package box is super sturdy and organised. Each of the compartments are clearly labelled with a little fun touch and clear arrows - “Burrito”, “Cards”, and “Put Other Stuff Here”.
