Tabletop Spotlight: Go Nuts For Donuts

Who doesn’t love a good strategy game…with Donuts!

Yes – you read that right! This is a stratgey game that involves donuts. Our friends at Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy brought it over and it’s down right delightful!

Go Nuts For Donuts! is all about choices – which donut do you want? Which one will your opponent want? What’s your master plan to score the most points and win the game?! That’s really what it all comes down to in this game. It’s a simple concept: There are multiple donuts available each round, and you can only choose 1 – however, if you pick the same one as someone else, then NOBODY gets it. But if you don’t go for it, then you’ll miss out on the big points. Decisions, decisions…

Gameplay is super easy to learn because a lot of the rules are actually on the cards. And speaking of the cards, they look fantastic. Anthropomorphic Donuts never looked this good! The art is fun and lighthearted and the colors are bright and inviting. Players of all ages will like this game. If you’re like me and you have more than a few non-gamer friends and you’re looking for something they won’t be intimated by, then you should check this game out. At the same time, more veteran gamers will appreciate the gamesmenship of trying to out think your opponents. Each draw of the donuts creates new options and iterations – it’s surprisingly deep!

Gamewright has a pretty solid track record when it comes to publishing games – so if you’re in the market for a new game that doesn’t take a ton of time to learn or play, but will have you coming back for more, then pick-up a copy of Go Nuts For Donuts!
