Wow. This one’s hitting pretty hard on the Nostalgia button. I’m sure a lot of you reading this weren’t even around when the Burger Time video game initially came out. Hell, I was barely around when the original arcade cabinets were making their way to the public. But now, for those that have played it, there’s a card game that plays just like the classic. Of course, those that haven’t played it can play the card game, too. Either way, the game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Data East’s Burger Time the Card Game takes you back to the arcade of the 80’s. When we were all young and had pockets full of quarters! Burger Time is a 2 player (can be played by 1 player) card game in which each “chef” tries to build the burgers from their menu first.
Players draw cards from the deck and build their burgers in order. Each burger is different and requires unique ingredients! Watch out for the bad guys… Mr. Egg, Mr. Pickle, and Mr. Hot Dog will try to steal your ingredients and slow you down! Each “chef” starts the game with 3 pepper cards in their arsenal to shake away the baddies.
If a player runs out of pepper cards they are in danger, unless they can get their hands on a bonus! A cup of coffee, an order of french fries, and an ice cream cone will restore a used pepper card to keep them cooking!
The campaign is already over its funding goal with still 19 days left to go.
