Maki Stack Game Review


This month as part of the Asmodee Blogger Board Game Club we have been playing a game called Maki Stack!  It's basically a race to build a tower of sushi the fastest, and we are loving it!

Maki Stack is a game for either 2 players or 2 teams to play against each other and is aimed at children from ages 7 and up.

In the box you will find a couple of wooden pieces of sushi, a bowl, and a bottle of soy sauce.  There are also 2 mats, 2 masks and 2 stacks of challenge cards.  The two different types of cards are the chopstick stacking ones (in which you use your fingers as chopsticks and follow the pattern on the card to stack the fastest), and the mask cards (in which you wear your mask as a blindfold and have to try to build your stack the fastest while someone tells you which pieces to use).

Each player or team has a sushi mat, a mask and a set of wooden pieces.  The cards are all shuffled up together so the two different types will alternate.  

The top card is then looked at to see which type it is.  If it's a regular chopstick card then it is flipped over and both players teams try to build that stack the fastest using their two index fingers as chopsticks (or their two pinky fingers for more of a challenge).

If it is a mask card next in the pile then both players put on their masks as someone tells them which pieces to stack next.  Again the fastest player wins.  

When a player wins a round they then take that challenge card and add it to their pile.  The player or team with the most cards at the end is the winner.

We have really enjoyed playing Maki Stack, it would be the perfect game for a family game night as it really is great in teams to take turns and to have someone to give instructions for the mask cards.  This will definitely be a fun addition to our family game nights!
