Muffin Time is a chaotic card game collaboration between asdf movie creates TomSka and kings of the party game, Big Potato. It had a very successful campaign on Kickstarter, and it’s easy to see why. TomSka’s animations are popular on Youtube and his simple but lively art looks great on the cards.
Despite the look of the art, the game does has some macabre themes, with some dark humour, and of course farting and bottom humour, but it is not only that and certainly not overdone. To win the game you must get exactly 10 cards in your hand and announce Muffin Time, then if you still have 10 cards at the start of your next turn you win! Of course, you have just painted a big target on your back!
This is because Muffin Time is a game with a lot of player interaction, coming firmly under the take that genre. It also is more chaotic and silly that a lot of modern board games. As such it’s one to enjoy during the sillier moments of game night or on a night with some gaming newcomers. The humour and madness all combining to create a memorable experience with many laugh out loud moments.
Some of the most interesting cards involve mini games where players will be thrust into a mini challenge with consequences for the losers. Learning the game is easy and the instructions for how the cards work are clearly written on the cards themselves.
Muffin Time offers a confident and fun alternative to chaotic party card games, like Exploding Kittens and Fluxx. It’s the kind of game that everyone needs at least one of in their collection and Muffin Time might just be the best.
