A Cutthroat Game of Gluttony

A Churrascaria (chew-haas-kah-ree-uh) is a Brazilian style steakhouse serving a seemingly never-ending supply of succulent skewered meat grilled over an open fire. An all you can eat smorgasbord of fire-roasted chicken, pork, beef and more, brought tableside and cut to order.

ThisĀ game was inspired by a visit to one such establishment with a large group of friends, and the meat fueled shenanigans that transpired as we attempted to one-up each other and stuff ourselves with the amazing food that kept appearing on our plates.

Churrascaria: A Cutthroat Game of Gluttony is a fast-paced game of card collection where everyone is trying to eat all the succulent meats that appear on their plates while avoiding the equally delicious but ultimately less satisfying sides and desserts that just get in the way. All the while food theft, plate swapping, and general backstabbing keep the food flying. The person who consumes the most meat wins.

Churrascaria is designed by David Thomas and illustrated by Ellie Jang.

It consists of 112 cards, 6 chipboard tokens, and a rules manual.

Churrascaria was successfully funded on Kickstarter, raising over $11,500 and began delivery to backers in early January.
