Starting out as a breakout hit card game in 2013, the Sushi Go! universe of games now contains three titles as of writing:
- Sushi Go!
- Sushi Go Party!
- Sushi Roll
All three games are built on the same cute art style and addictive gameplay. But which version should you get? Or can you justify owning all three? The answer depends on what you’re looking for.
For a market that was fixated on large games, Love Letter bucked the trend in a big way. Containing only 16 cards in a small satchel, it provided a great game that travels well and was cheap to purchase. Thanks to the success of Love Letter, the entire subset of small tabletop games is booming.
Choosing just three games for this list is a daunting task, as there are so many great games in this category. I will have to come back to this one in the future to cover more of them. For now though, here’s a trio of terrific tiny titles to consider for your next board game night!
The inclusion of Sushi Go onto this list even caught me by surprise. Though the review only recently went live, I’ve had this game for a few months now and have played it a lot. In most cases, the game worked well, though it wasn’t anything that blew me out of the water.
That is, until I broke out it out with my coworkers. Maybe it was just the crowd that I played it with, but the game shined that night in a way that I didn’t think it could. On that night, the sushi moved around the table for hours as my coworkers wouldn’t stop playing it. Whether it hits that super nova level of awesome again remains to be seen. However, even at it’s “worst”, the game is still going to be fun any time you break it out. Congratulations Sushi Go for making the list!

I’ll be the first to admit that seafood isn’t my cup of tea. Aside from certain kinds of white fish, I’m either not a fan of the taste or allergic. In Sushi Go! from Phil Walker-Harding and Gamewright, you don’t have to eat anything, though you are tasked with creating the most delectable sets of sushi around. Is this food-inspired card game worthy of a spot at your dinner table or wherever you happen to play tabletop games?
The thing that separates great DJs from the pack is their ability to play the music that people want to hear, when they want to hear it. Those DJs can keep a party rocking all night long, while most others will struggle to keep a crowd engaged for an extended period of time. I never chased my DJ dreams with any real vigor, though they ultimately died on the vine when I realized that making a living as one would basically mean that I would have to put the musical tastes of others before my own. Sorry, but your music sucks and I’d rather play Taylor Swift and Wu-Tang all the time. 😛
Ever since I got serious about collecting board games, I’ve unintentionally become the go-to guy that my family and friends look to in order to bring out games that they’d find fun to play. Much like a DJ, it’s become very important for me to gauge the group and pick out the right titles that will work for that group.
