CUDO Plays Recommends
Continuing our focus on black game designers for Black History Month, today CUDO Plays recommends Discount Salmon by Cara Heacock, and Marcus Ross.
Discount Salmon is a light, speed-based card game where players take on the role of fishermen at a very disgusting lake. The salmon caught in this lake all have issues like, ugly, or smelly, or radioactive. Once a salmon card is flipped up, all players simultaneously play cards from their hand to fix the salmon’s issues (like playing perfume on a smelly salmon) or to make the salmon even less desirable (like sticking rotten eggs on it to make it smelly if it wasn’t already before). The first player to resolve all of a salmon’s issues takes the card, and most salmon at the end of the game wins! A quick 10 minute game for 2-6 players.
