Blend-Off!, my favorite game of the year to include strawberry and durian smoothies, ended prematurely, as its creators realized they needed to tweak the funding goals for the campaign. The relaunched campaign is already under way and already 90% towards its funding goal! So if you were curious about Blend-Off! after reading my review but didn’t pull the trigger, now’s the time to do so. The game is still the same:
Blend Off! is a fast-paced, competitive, chaotic dice-rolling and resource collection card game for 2-4 players. It’s designed by Scot Eaton, who has previously designed expansions for Catan and 7 Wonders. With a unique theme and charming artwork, this is a fun, casual Kickstarter game that everyone in your family can enjoy. You and up to three other players roll custom dice (representing Kevin, Becca’s unreliable fruit-supplying son) and try to accumulate enough ingredients in your blenders to complete recipes and claim them for points before the deck runs out.
But this time around, they’ve added a Kickstarter-Exclusive expansion of five mystery smoothies.
So more recipes for the same price! It’s still just $19 to get a copy of the game and there’s a free Print-and-Play version for you to try Blend-Off! at home. It’s a ton of fun and a game that my kids really enjoy. If you’re looking for a fast-paced, casual game with a unique theme, head over to the Blend-Off! Kickstarter page before the relaunched campaign ends next Thursday.
