It's finals week at SouthEast High, an the pressure has been building up steadily. So, it's really no surprise when a food fight erupts during lunch period. Use your cards to attack, clean up or take cover. Stun opponents with cola cans, or cause an extra mess by hitting them with food that splatters.
Adding to the challenge is a victory system that doesn't guarantee that the player that ends the game will be the one that wins it.
The theme, fast action & varied strategy make this a game the whole family can enjoy.
Atlas Games' Lunch Money has been criticized for being too expensive, too convoluted, too unfair and too violent. Splatter is a simple fight card game that seems to solve all those problems.
Splatter has fewer types of cards than LM so players don't have to spend half the game looking up the rules for each action. Even better, any card can be used facedown for defense or healing unlike LM where players short of 'blocks' and 'first aid' would get creamed.
Splatter uses a die to settle conflicts but still involves less luck than its pricey predecessor. The theme involves a harmless food fight instead of a bloody brawl so young and/or sensitive gamers won't have to shy away.
The only complaint I have is that the card stock is so thin you can practically see through the cards. The stock should be a little thicker even for even a $5 game.
Otherwise, Splatter is a winner and should provide ample comptetition for Atlas and Cheapass Games.
