  • 2 Player Variant

Players get only 5 cards on the first turn of one round, then draw one extra card at the beginning of each of the 5 following turns.

Playing a round

You are at a fancy sushi restaurant which is not tabehodai (all-you-can-eat). So you need to order each item separately creating oshii (delicious) combinations.

The game takes place over 3 rounds, each with multiple turns. On each turn, all players simultaneously choose any 1 card from their hands that they would like to keep. When each player has done this, the chosen cards are revealed. The cards you chose will remain in front of you on your sushi belt until the end of the round. Desserts are placed in the refrigerator for round 1 and round 2.

Your remaining hand is then passed to the player on your left, and you receive a new hand from the player on your right. Your next turn begins with fewer cards to choose from.
