Very fun game - can be too much violence depending on players Reviewed in the United States on March 13, 2020 Style: Throw Throw Burrito - OriginalVerified Purchase I only took away one star because this has ended with angry players on several occasions. One occasion with crying. I suggest making a house rule that head shots are off limits if you play with kids or anyone who doesn't like getting hit in the face with a foam burrito. We haven't had a bloody nose yet, but I do think you could get a bloody nose if you were hit just right with enough velocity.

Style: Throw Throw Burrito -  A game where you get to throw burritos at each other? Seemed too good to be true. This game is SO much fun. So easy to learn. The premise is simple enough. Everyone plays at the same time, nobody is sitting getting bored while others take their turns. Multiple piles of cards are spread around the table then everyone starts drawing from their pile and discarding to the next until a total of 3 matching cards is achieved. If the 3 cards are any variety of extremely adorable critters then the player places those cards in front of them and keeps drawing tying to achieve another match. If the matching cards are a variety of burrito cards then chaos ensues as two players engage in a burrito throwing contest. Who can take out their opponent first? The burritos are very soft and don’t hurt even if you get beaned by a particularly hard throw. The bigger area you have to play in the better, but we played in our relatively small kitchen/dining area and still had a blast.

Great family fun, with a caveat Reviewed in the United States on April 20, 2020 Style: Throw Throw Burrito -  This is an easy to learn game that our 10 year old son LOVES. It's a basic match three game, but with random dodge ball matches breaking out! The only issue we struggle with is that with a three person game, and around an average sized dining room table, burrito wars resolve themselves without anyone even moving from their seats. I bet this will be an even greater game for our son to enjoy with his friends in a larger group post COVID-19.
