Vlog Ep. 201: Chope! The Card Game

For tonight's #BaduyPride featured tabletop game, we're traveling to Singapore with Chope! The Card Game, a clever little game that celebrates Singapore Hawker Culture through platy. With fewer than 100 cards, the game surprisingly supports 2-6 players, which is impressive for a smaller game. This game is the creation of one Daryl Chow, who has a surprising number of games under his belt, at least based on his BoardGameGeek profile

I really like this game because of its simplicity and yet how much it achieves at the same time. Not only did this lead to a colorful, creative card game with some fun game mechanics, but it's educational. With a few cards and a helpful flyer, it nicely educates players to what hawker culture is and what these different (now adorable) dishes are. And it takes a certain type of game to balance those different aspects effectively.
