Looney Labs makes great family games that are easy to understand and "Just Desserts" is no different. You and friends are waiters at a restaurant, competitively trying to satisfy the customers as they walk in. Each turn you'll draw from the "dessert" pile, attempting to put together desserts that the customer is looking for. If the customer is satisfied, then take that person and add them to your pile of satisfied customers. The first to satisfy three customers of the same suit (border color) or five of different suits win.
My family and I enjoy this game and sneak it into the mix every other week for a competitive card game. Easy enough that my five year jumps in as well. The game rules are simple enough that you're able to add varient rules, like us, we also have drinking rules to it.
Put sleeves on the cards. Like most looney lab cards, they're thin and easy to damage from daily wear. I'm using Fantasy Flight Standard American Board Game Size 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 in sleeves
Although, we played the game several times, it doesn't seem to have as much replayability (is that a word?!) as some other games. It is creative and does have a certain fun factor, but the kids seem to prefer good ol' Uno to this. Still, I think it's a great game to add to the game shelf for family fun night or when we have guests!
Each guest has likes and dislikes and each player gathers dessert cards to try and match what guests like, while avoiding what they don't like. For example Fuzzy likes peanuts and chocolate, but dislikes marshmallows. You can give him a mint chocolate milk shake and peanut brittle, but not s'mores because they have marshmallows.
Desserts and guests have clear icons so you know what they want, and what is in the dessert. Each guest has a favorite dessert that matches all their likes exactly, such as peanut butter cups for Fuzzy. Matching that gets you an extra card!
Matching at most 2 guests per turn (or drawing cards if you can't do any), the goal is to gain three guests of one suit (denoted by color and an icon), or at least one guests from five of the six suits.
The game play is of lighter fare, more orange sherbet than black forest cake. The main choice to make on your turn is if you can serve a guest, do you want to use as many cards as it will take with what you have. There is plenty of luck involved in drawing the right cards at the right time, but if you do have a terrible hand, you can dump as many cards and replace them all as a turn.
The standard rules are gently whipped into a soft creme where you aren't going to do much more to another player than take a guest they were planning on taking on their turn.
Optional rules allow you to try and steal guests, return opponent guests to the center of the table (to be served again) or you can also interrupt and take a guest mid-serve by offering their favorite. All the optional rules all add more "Take that!" to the game, if that's how you want to play. They are balanced out, so as to not make them too hard on the victims. (Haven't played with them personally yet).
Just Desserts is a good game if you just need a small gaming snack, or want something to finish off a game night with a little something else. Or to start it off and play Just Desserts first!
Note: There is a misprint on the Grandma card, but the publisher will send you a replacement free off their website.
