This fun card game is one of our favorite games for the whole family because it’s so quick. My kids will happily sit and play this one for an hour or more – round after round after round.
To play, you pick one card from your hand to keep for yourself, then pass your cards to the next person. Everyone keeps doing this until all cards are picked. Then you score points based on which cards you kept: Did you get the most maki rolls? Did you dip your nigiri in wasabi to triple its value?
When my second child was 3, she loved this game, even though she didn’t get the strategy of which cards to keep. In fact, she didn’t care who won because she had so much fun just picking her favorite cards and passing the rest along. Now that she’s older, she’s starting to pick up on the strategy – and her younger sister is now in that “having a blast picking cards” phase.
Pro tip: When you’re playing card games with your child, this card holder is a must have for little hands. Your child can hold it to see their cards, or they can set the holder down on the table for a break. (This particular card holder has stood the test of time, as opposed to other card holders we’ve tried!)
Note: The manufacturer says this is for ages 8 and up, but according to several other families (including mine!) most 5-year-olds are ready for this game, especially if you help them out a bit at first until they learn the different cards.

Pass the sushi! In this fast-playing card game, the goal is to grab the best combination of sushi dishes as they whiz by. Score points for making the most maki rolls or for collecting a full set of sashimi. Dip your favorite nigiri in wasabi to triple its value. But be sure to leave room for dessert or else you’ll eat into your score. Gather the most points and consider yourself the sushi master!
This card game is easy to learn, quick to play, and yet engaging for all ages. Just like a great meal at a sushi bar, this game will have you coming back for more, time and time again!
