Throw Throw Burrito A Dodgeball Card Game Review
Throw Throw Burrito is a 15 minute game, which includes 120 cards, 7 tokens, and 2 adorable foam burritos soft enough to throw at your sweet sweet friend. Well, what’s the gist? Collect matching sets of cards faster than your opponents while simultaneously ducking, dodging, and throwing squishy airborne burritos.
Yes, so that means clear some space and put away those valuables, because it’s going to get a little crazy. Now, the cards you collect earn you points, but you lose points when you get hit by squishy burritos.
Let’s begin… Shuffle the deck of cards and deal out approximately 15 cards face down to each player (don’t bother counting cards exactly- anything close to 15 cards is fine). Put your Personal Draw Pile to your right.
Split the remaining cards into two piles and place them face down in the middle of the table to form the Community Piles.
Place the Burritos and the Burrito Bruises in the middle of the table.
Each player should take the top 5 cards from their Personal Draw Piles and look at them. Leave the rest of the pile face down.
Try to get 3 matching cards as quickly as you can by discarding cards in your hand (one at a time) and drawing new ones from your Personal Draw Pile.
When you get a set of 3 matching cards, put them face up in front of you in a single pile (your Score Pile), and draw 3 more cards from your Personal Draw Pile.
You can NEVER have more than 5 cards in your hand, so always discard before you draw.
There are no turns! All players go at the same time.
Draw cards from your Personal Draw Pile on your right and discard cards face down onto the Personal Draw Pile of the player to your left.
If you run out of cards in your Personal Draw Pile, you may draw from either of the Community Piles. You must resume drawing from your Personal Draw Pile once it has cards again.
If you get a set of 3 matching cards, it is worth 1 point. Put it down in front of you in your Score Pile.
If you get a set of 3 Burrito Cards (Brawl, War, or Duel), it’s worth 2 points, and it ALSO starts a battle.
If you lose a battle, take a Burrito Bruise and put it in your Score Pile. Burrito Bruises are worth -1 point. Only 1 Burrito Bruise is given out per battle.
