Sushi Go! is a unique and engaging card game with 108 fun illustrative "sushi" cards like wasabi, tempura, dumplings and chopsticks. Described as a "pick and pass" card game, the object is to snatch the best combination of foods that comes by. Collect a full set of sashimi cards, make the most maki, spice up your nigiri with wasabi. Cards have points; combos have even more. Each game consists of three rounds.

In a 2 player game, each player gets 10 cards; 3 players get 9 and so on. Simultaneously, players choose a card they want to keep and place it face down in front of them. Ready? All players turn their "chosen" cards face up and pass their remaining hand face down to the player on the left. Each new hand becomes smaller and has fewer cards to select to keep.

At first, the instructions took a little time to really interpret and understand, but after one trial round followed by 3 rounds (one game) of play, we got the hang of it and moved from understanding to trying more strategy.
