Who would love this: Anyone who loves donuts/ delicious treats/ strategy games
A strategy card game with delicious donuts that brings sunshine to the room - this game is irresistible! “Go Nuts for Donuts” from Gamewright has been around in the market for a while, and it has always been THE game that I really wanted to test out. Thank you Jedko Games for providing a copy.
Why I love ❤️ this game:
(1) A Strategy Game With FUN Moves
I’m a BIG FAN of strategy games - anything involves crafty planning and calculative moves. In this game, players need to figure out which donut they want while also trying to read your opponents’ minds. Each round, a number of donut cards are set out face-up, each beneath a numbered marker. Players simultaneously reveal which donut they have secretly picked; if two persons selected the same donut then neither players get it. If you were the only one who pick a specific donut, then you get to keep that sweet treat. Each card would either reward you with a certain points, or comes with special actions (eg getting an extra card from deck, or from discard pile etc). The player with the most points when the deck runs out, wins the crown. We love those funny “mind games”, quiet plans to defeat another’s victory scheme, outsmarting each other whilst trying to keep our eyes on the prize (or donut). Should we aim for the larger goal by collecting “Donut Holes” (15 points if you collected 5 in a set), or should we go straight to a single “powdered” donut and claim a decent 3 points? Should we go for “Strawberry Glaze” to discard a player’s card, or should we go “Sprinkled” and throw our worst card at the biggest rival? This game is frustrating, fun, and (thankfully) non-fattening!
(2) Recommended Family & Party Game
I love that the game can be played by 2 to 6 players - which make this a great family game and party game. This is a great filler game that is easy to teach, fast to learn, quick to complete. Amazingly, sometimes, the player with the least strategy might turn out to be the ultimate winner (e.g. my 4 year-old who just repeatedly selects the best-looking treats).
(3) Card Game With SUPER Cute Artworks
I love the adorable artworks: donuts with cute faces, delightful graphics, lovely bright colours, tantalising pastries. Irresistible - 100%!
