Behold, Products! Taco Ninja Adventure

Today I'm highlighting a product that's currently on Kickstarter called Taco Ninja Adventure

Taco Ninja Adventure is a card & dice game for 2-6 players, and it's team based! It works for ages 10 and up, and has a bunch of fun art of various Taco Ninjas.

When I asked the creators at Turn Sideways Games to tell me about the product, this is what they shared:

In November of 2016, my little brother William asked me for help with a board game he was working on. He called it "Taco Ninja Adventure" and it's based on a comic book series that he and his friends wrote. William and I have been developing Taco Ninja Adventure together over the past 2 years and it's been a lot of fun and great bonding experience. The little man has a knack for coming up with taco and ninja based puns. We're so excited that the Kickstarter is finally live and we want to share what we've been working on!

Taco Ninja Adventure is a team based, card and dice game that takes 15-20min for 2-6 players. It's definitely inspired by King of Tokyo and Magic the Gathering, and designed to be a light weight game that is approachable for kids and fun for adults. We also put a lot of time and effort into finding an artist that fit the style of the game. Sol Azpiroz (@azpimar) has created some really amazing Taco Ninja artwork and we're so lucky to be working with her. We'd love for you to check out our Kickstarter page to see it for yourselves!

Rusty, who contacted me about the game, has created a game that appears pretty simple, and the theme is silly and fun. On the Kickstarter, the cards and materials all look really nice and they included a clear How to Play section right on the page, plus gif and video options for the rules. The rules are even available in Italian!

Some of the upcoming stretch goals include an embroidered carrying bag and wooden trackers, and there are social media goals for higher production values (like writing haikus!). It looks like this project is on the right track for success, now that it's funded, but reaching higher production values as stretch goals is always awesome, and it looks like a fun product for a reasonable price!

If you think playing taco-headed ninjas with a team of other players sounds like a fun time, check out the Kickstarter today!
