Fine dining the masked bandit way. This week we enjoyed Trash Can Nachos and played Trash Pandas.
The Game…Trash Pandas
Trash Pandas, by Gamewright Games is a push your luck and set collection game. You did through the trash can to find cards that assist you will stashing away more cards of each set than your opponent. To take actions on your turn, you roll a die. You can roll as many times as you like to try and acquire multiple actions. If you push your luck too far and roll the same action twice, you bust and don’t get to take any of the actions!
Since end game is triggered when the trash can (draw stack) is empty, Trash Pandas takes about 20 minutes rather you have 2, 3, or 4 players. In our game today, Conesy and I had fun stealing each others cards, forcing additional roles and trying to stash cards as quickly as we could. In the end, Conesy emerged the victor with a full stomach and 23 points to my 20.
The Food…Trash Can Nachos
The food inspired by a recipe from Guy Fieri I found online. In empty and clean bean cans, I layered our favorite nacho ingredients: chips, shredded chicken, black beans, tomatoes, onions, and jalapenos. Topped everything off with homemade salsa, sour cream, and cilantro. While it didn’t dump out of the can in a nice column (but really, when would trash do that?), it was a fun twist on eating our nacho brunch.
