Board Game Brunch: Digging in the Trash

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.

And Beyond…

This Game has nothing to do with Ducks: Quacks of Quedlinburg

Quacks of Quedlinburg is a game that has nothing to do with ducks, as the name might make you think! Rather you take on the role of a doctor who throws potions of random things together and sells them for money. The better a quack you are, the greater chance you can make a great potion that scores you not only points, but plenty of cash to buy even better ingredients! Just be careful, or your pot will explode and then you have to make due with whatever goo was left in the pot.

Rolling the Dice for Dungeon Roll

Dungeon Roll

Dungeon Roll is an interesting game with some unique components. In the game, you muster an adventuring party for 3 ‘delves’ into the dungeon. Your party is built from a set number of dice that you roll at the start of your turn. One of the other players then takes control of the monsters. You then start your delve with level 1 of the dungeon and try to see if you can make it through level 10 of the dungeon. For each level, the player controlling the monsters rolls one dice for each level. If you can defeat what is rolled, you can choose to advance or take your winnings and run. In order to defeat monsters and open chests, it requires using up your hero dice in your party so you have a bit of limited resources.

On top of that, each player starts the game as some unique character. It could be a tough as nails viking or a stout and stubborn dwarf. There are a lot to choose from, especially for those of us that originally backed the Kickstarter. This character gives you special abilities that you can use while you are on your delve. Perhaps when the dragon is woke up, you can escape for free or you get to use an extra dice when generating your adventuring party!
