Playing the game

You are at a fancy sushi restaurant which doesn't have 食べ放題 tabehoudai (all-you-can-eat). So you need to order each item separately, creating 惜しい oshii (delicious) combinations and grabbing a few desserts if you wish.

Create your own menu consists of Nigiri (egg, salmon, squid), 1 type of sushi rolls (Maki, Temaki or Uramaki), 3 types of appetizers, 2 types of specials and 1 type of dessert (Pudding, Fruit or Green Tea Ice Cream). 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 at the end of 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 1 fewer card to choose from. After the 3rd round, the game is over and the player with the most points wins. Tiebreaker is most desserts.
