OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Masks On. Hands on. Game on. The New  game MAKI Stack from Blue Orange(Hot Games, Cool Planet) is for ages 7 and up. Players can challenge each other or form teams to build the sushi inspired sculpture. Maki Stack comes with 10 wooden objects. 2 cucumber sushi rolls, 2 California Rolls, 2 Fish Rolls, and 2 soy sauce bottles and 2 plates. There's also 2 sushi mats, 2 masks with elastic and 40 challenge cards.  The detail is the key. The first team to stack designs dictated by the cards and get 6 cards wins the round. Directions show variations on these games from beginner to advanced, so with many ways to play, Maki Stack will have players rolling with laughter. 

Is It Fun?

Players form 2 teams, and each team is given a set of wooden sushi shapes. Once a challenge card is picked, it's up to each team to complete the picture using their own skills to win the first challenge and the card. The harder challenge comes when the masks are added. In this version, one player wears the mask and has to complete the picture using only one hand, while the picture is described to them by a fellow team member.The chopsticks challenge is even more difficult as two team members use one finger each to lift pieces into position. Directions show variations on these games from beginner to advanced.
