Why we selected it:

It’s known as the world's first dodgeball card game with 3 main goals…

-Collect cards.
-Play your hand.
- Throw things at your friends!

Put simply the cards you collect earn points, but getting hit by flying burritos loses them. I personally would recommend playing this game in a large space, maybe even put away any delicate items nearby. I'd also suggest playing spaced out and some people can throw the burritos just a tad aggressively and you may hurt your friends feelings if they get hit in the face with one (Sorry Rachel lol!!).

I find it's a change of pace to my usual board game nights as this time I'm actually supposed to throw the pieces at my friends and it allows me to develop some sort of strategy among chaos. I've never actually won a game myself yet, I always end up laughing too much at whoever’s been struck, but this game will truly bring some laughs your way.

Official instructions on how it works: Place a pair of burritos on a table and draw cards. Keep your cards a secret. Rack up points by finding sets of three in the deck. Find matches before anyone else does. If someone plays Burrito Cards, a Battle ensues. Steal points from your opponents by hitting them with squishy toy burritos. Declare war on your friends. Some battles only involve a handful of players. Others force the entire table to engage in a Burrito War. Duel to determine the winner. During a Burrito Duel, two players must stand back to back, walk three paces, and FIRE.
