First, a bit of a warning. I ordered mine from Eric Robinson via Amazon. $39.99

Found it the next day at Fairplay games for $23.45

THEN found it at Cardhaus for only $22.95 (and $5 less shipping).

Ouch. Those differences are huge. This game is not out of print nor is it a high volume seller a la Nintendo Wii. So these prices are just crazy. I came very close to returning mine to save the money.

So, lesson 1 - shop around. Shop the Amazon partners but also the Internet. I'll definitely be avoiding Eric Robinson regardless.

Anyway, on to the game.

Nice, colorful box. Sturdy.

Four pages of illustrated rules. Two sets provided (English and German). They are on rather thin paper but you can download them in pdf format from boardgamegeek.com. Search for Wasabi! and go to the bottom where "files" can be downloaded.

It's basically a "tile placement" game. You manage your ingredients to complete sushi orders before the opponents. Fun with 2. Up to 4 can play. Actually, to learn it I played solitaire (switching roles as if there were 2 players). That was amusing as well.

Play is about 45 minutes. So it's a great start to a more serious gaming evening or a nice "wind down" game. Also works as you wait for others to arrive before you go to dinner. I played with some folks from Japan and learned alot along the way. They enjoyed it. I came in second. :)

The components are very nicely done - eye candy if you will. See the photos (above) I posted from Boardgamegeek.

1. The board is solid cardstock depicting the sushi chefs' preparation area. The number of squares in play depends on the number of participants - so the time required is consistent (nice touch).

2.

This game is perfect! From design to game mechanics, from playing time to fun factor, from strategic to vertiginous.

I cannot tell how much my girlfriend, brothers, friends and I have enjoyed this game. I presume this can be perfect for anybody. It is not a long game but it has the characteristics of more complex abstract strategy ones.
The design are beautiful (at first I was afraid they sent me the german version, but all the materials come in 2 idioms, english and german.)

This game will want you play one match after another and it is suitable for a very large public, from small children to elder people. I totally recommend it.
The game mechanics are so closely defined that it is nearly impossible to find any flaws on them. (Unless you add some home-made rules variants, that is) and yet it leaves nearly 90% of the fun factor to the creativity and planning of each player.

My 26-year-old son, who is a social games designer, asked for this game for Christmas. It's a smart, family-friendly game, not just for "gamers" as he calls it, but fun for everyone. He says it was a 5-star game for him and he's pretty particular.
