Cards come in six different types of veggies, and the back of each card has a different scoring method. So for instance, one scoring method may award 2 points for every carrot you have, but deduct a point for every onion.

    Point Salad is a wonderful filler game of amassing points in a myriad of ways.

    Cards are double-sided and show up in two ways; on one side is a point card, these are ways of scoring points, if you can fulfill their criteria, and on the other side are vegetables, these are needed the fulfill the requirements of point cards.

    On your turn you either take 1 point card or 2 vegetable cards, that is literally the game. A very simple concept but with the ever-shifting array of point cards and vegetable cards there is are always plenty of options to choose from, and you never feel trapped into a failing strategy, there is always room to adapt.

    What I really like about Point Salad is it works well for both experienced and new gamers alike. For new gamers, open drafting (where people choose from cards that are on the table for all to see) is a lot easier to explain than traditional drafting as all the information is there, nothing is hidden, so everything can be openly discussed. For more experienced gamers, there is more meat to the game, there are more ways to score, plans are more flexible to change and once again, as all the information is all on the table, it is possible to be much more calculating.

    Finally, a game that has come along to take the crown of Sushi Go!
