Here a salami pizza, there a Bombastica. Hey, who stole the cheese!
Uwe Rosenberg has a talent for dreaming up new and inventive card games, and this is a perfect example. Each player is given eight different pizza orders to fill, and on his turn adds ingredient cards (pepperoni, mushroom, pineapple, green pepper, olive) and then an optional pizza order to a common pile. After the draw pile is exhausted, the common pile is flipped over and the cards in it are sorted by ingredient until an order comes up. If there are enough ingredient cards to fill the order, the player scores it. If there aren't enough, the player can either make up the difference with cards from his hand or put the order back into his 'to be filled' pile. After three rounds, the player with the most filled orders wins.
Thoughtful tactics, a pinch of luck and a pound of memory can bring victory! Mamma Mia
is an easy, but unusual card game, which whets the appetite!
