Gnome Games announces the 2019 Stocking Stuffer of the Year – Astro Trash by USAopoly
You’re going to need a slightly bigger stocking this year for the Stocking Stuffer of the Year!
Gnome Games is happy to announce that Astro Trash from the OP Games (USAopoly) has been selected as the 2019 Stocking Stuffer of the Year.
Each year Gnome Games selects one game as the Stocking Stuffer of the Year. The selection criteria include fun factor, replayability, value, and of course the ability to fit inside the normal stocking. The Gnomes do not accept rewards, payment or consideration from the manufacturer in the selection of this award, and evaluate the games by playing them with friends, family, customers, and most importantly with kids as part of the Gnome Games Community Outreach and Family Game Night Program. We do occasionally bend some of the rules in favor of a wonderful choice, as seen in this year’s pick.
Astro Trash is a game in which each player must get rid of all the trash on their planet at the expense of the players to their left and right. Players simultaneously roll three dice and rapidly move the “trash” according to the direction, quantity, and color indicated on the dice. There is no turn taking, so it’s a mad frenzy to try to move all the trash off your planet. The first player to clear all their trash wins the round and is awarded a “Trash Trophy”. Play until someone has 3 trash trophies and they are the winner!
Bonus Stuffer – Bob’s Burgers – Belcher Family Food Fight
There is also a Bob’s Burgers themed version called Belcher Family Food Fight! Same great game, just with burgers instead of planet trash.
For ages 6+ and up to 5 players, Astro Trash is playable in 15 minutes. It’s a great game to play with all ages, but you might need a slightly bigger stocking this year!
Congratulations Astro Trash on being the Gnome Games Stocking 2019 Stuffer of the Year!
Honorable Mentions go out to:
Furry Foodies by the OP Games (Usaopoly)
Bubble Tea by Renegade Game Studios
Point Salad by AEG
