Like Family Friendly Card Games? Try Foodfighters!

Lately, my nephew has been asking me if I could bring over some of my favorite games for him to try out. This is great because I now have a great 2nd player to introduce all my favorites to. Surprisingly, at 7 years old, he is getting pretty good; he’s beating me at everything! He wasn’t always enthusiastic about board gaming. One evening at my mothers house my two nephews came over with my grandparents to watch a few movies. My older nephew brought his Xbox after plug-in–resumed his campaign (I think?). My younger nephew would typically watch his brother play his video games, but this night, instead of watching Xbox I brought over a couple games for him to play. We played Gloobs, Hey! That’s My Fish, and a couple other more classic board games. He really enjoyed the experience of analog gaming and opened a new door for me and my nephew to explore the world of tabletop!
foodfightersI’ve began introducing him into more games like: Elementy by Gamematz, Coconuts, and Exploding Kittens. He enjoyed them all very much! However, there was one title he consistently asked for. This game is a 2 player card game that battles two epic groups against each other to the bitter end. This game. Is FoodFighters.
In FoodFighters you choose between two of our most common food groups, the meats or the veggies (proud to say he enjoyed the veggies team). Equipped with crackers, spoons, and pans you must battle these cards against each other in order to be victorious (kill 3 of 1 kind of produce or meat). The game is simple, you lay out your teams 9 cards in a 3×3 structure. Each turn you choose one of your cards (they can only attack adjacent to their card and can only attack whichever their card is “thinking” about–unless given equipment). Once you’ve captured 3 of one type of card, you win. My nephew absolutely loves this card game and I’ll be buying him a copy of his own for his birthday which should be around the corner (I better check up on that actually).
