For last year’s holidays, my list included a lot of games for the family to play, and this week we finally reached the point in the pile where we ‘opened ‘Taco Vs. Burrito’.  The game bills itself as being created by a seven-year-old, and it’s wildly creative and was immediately fun.  Best of all, though, is the replayability, with each shuffle changing the play of the game without having to deal with excessive complications or too many play pieces, leading us to today’s strategic query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds  asks: What game have you found the most unexpectedly fun, like ‘Taco Vs. Burrito?’

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Daniel Langsdale on

    Burrito over hard shell taco, but soft corn taco over burrito.

    What? Oh, wrong question. Okay, the card game ‘There’s a Moose in the House’ provided us with far more fun than a game of its simplicity should.

  2. Hands down, it’s gotta be Retro Bowl. Just a straight up, mostly free to play 8 bit football game app and all the fun, nostalgia and frustration that ensues from playing a handheld 8-bit football game. The only thing missing is a PVP option.

    And for convenience’s sake, burrito all the way. There used to be a burrito cart set up in a subway station near one of my old jobs that had the most amazing, clearly homemade al pastor I’ve ever had, and often times they’d be totally sold out and packing up to leave by 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Hope they survived all this unpleasantness and are still slinging the good stuff down in Back Bay Station.

    Sit down meal tho, seared tuna soft tacos with a little mango slaw on the side, probably with some sort of IPA
