Yummmm … Eat your veggies … POINT SALAD is a very simple card game taking over the gamers tables who are looking for those filler games with plenty of strategies, short on time, that can be used as a warm-up or cool down in those long game sessions or a quick one for that family gathering. The game is played with two to six chefs making their salads and takes about 5 minutes per person in the game.
There are 8 different veggies in the game on one side of the over 100 cards. On the other side of the cards – there are over 100 different ways to score points to win the game. The number of veggie cards used in the game differs with the number of players in the game so the game scales well with different numbers of players.
The game is set up with a tableau of 6 veggie side up cards and 3 victory point cards side up. One your turn you can take two veggies OR one victory point card. That simple, that easy … or so you think!
Do you take the two Tomatoes out there working towards have the most of those and your 10 point card you took earlier? Or take the card that says score 4 points for every one of your Onions you have but minus one point for all your tomatoes? Each turn of the card gives you and your opponent’s new ways in scoring your “salad” of veggie cards and new paths to victory!
The game is played until all the cards are gone and at the end the person who has collected the best combination of victory point cards and veggies will be crowned the victor while the others toss their salad … reshuffle the cards and set up for the next POINT SALAD war!
