If you’re looking for a quick group game to play without having to spend hours deciphering difficult directions, this is the game for you. Designed for 2-6 players, this Taco Bell-themed card game is easy to learn and takes about 20-30 minutes to complete — perfect for when you’re pregaming a night out or to accompany a late-night Taco Bell run.
Taco Bell fans know that this fast food chain is like a cult of its own and the fandom factor on this game is high, from the cardboard packaging that’s designed to look like a Party Pack to the sauce packet- and tortilla chip-shaped cards. The goal is to earn the most points by strategically gathering menu items to feed your crew while catering to their cravings. The crew cards feature different types of Taco Bell goers, such as Supreme Superfans, Drive-Thru Divas, Happier Hour Heroes, and more.
Players will draw cards that feature either menu items, action prompts, or sauce packets that give them special bonus powers, then earn points by feeding their crew. For example, the Drive Thru Diva might have a hunger for three matching menu items, with a bonus craving for bean burritos. A player can earn points on that turn by putting down three matching bean burrito cards. The special bonus powers might include earning crave chips (the tortilla chip-shaped cards) for extra points, the ability to feed additional crew members for extra points, stealing menu items from other players, or forcing a player to skip a turn. The game ends once all the crave chips are gone, which will happen faster with a larger group of players.
There is a little bit of strategy involved, but nothing too brain-twisting. Players will benefit from planning ahead for future moves or by carefully watching other players to guess what menu items they’re after to beat them to the punch. Like any trip to Taco Bell, you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck with this game. Different combinations of crew cards, cravings, meal cards, sauce packets, and action cards will create unique outcomes each time you play. This game is recommended for kids ages 8 and up so it’s definitely not as challenging as strategy games that are geared toward adults, making it fun for friends who are looking for something chill and easy-going.
Word to the wise: Only play if you have a real-life Taco Bell easily accessible because you will absolutely leave this game craving crunchy tacos, cheesy quesadillas, and the one and only Crunchwrap Supreme.
