SNAP Review: Maki Stack
California rolls, cucumber rolls, soy sauce, wasabi – sounds delicious. In Maki Stack, you stack wooden replicas of these items. Does Maki Stack stack up? Listen to our SNAP review in under 5 minutes, or read on below.
Stack that Sushi!
Which card(s) you pull determine how your team will work together to stack the sushi.
In Mask mode (4 or 6 players only), one player on each team puts on a blindfold mask. The other team member(s) direct them how to stack the sushi pieces to match the card.
In Chopstick mode, 2 teammates work together to stack ingredients; each uses only a single finger. If the team has 3 members, the third team member holds the card and directs the other teammates on how to assemble the stack.
If you are playing Maki Stack with only 2 players, all cards are treated as Chopstick mode. Use a single finger from each hand to stack the sushi. The player who finishes first wins the card.
- Well designed wooden pieces and cards
- Quick to play and understand
- A great way to practice teamwork
- Box is deceptively big
- Blindfold masks need to off-gas to be less smelly
- No way to balance odd numbers of teammates
