BUN-BUN is a hamburger-based set of games aimed at both children and adults.
Here are some of the games that you can play using your BUN-BUN Deck of Cards.
SECRET BUN-BUN (2-4 Players)
All Action Cards and Order Up Cards are removed from the Deck. The Order Up Cards are placed in a pile face down.
Each player selects a face down Order card at random. They are then dealt five cards.
The player to the left of the dealer asks the person to their left if they have one of the ingredients they need to complete their
Order Card. i.e. “Do you have any Cheese?”
If the answer is no, the player that asked must pick up two cards from the Deck.
If the answer is yes, the player with the Cheese card says yes and hands over the Cheese. If a player has more than one
card of any ingredient they still only hand over one card.
If a player successfully gets the ingredient they asked for – they place it down in front of them. The next successful ingredient
is placed overlapping the first and so on so that all ingredients are partially visible.
That is the end of their turn and the next player repeats the same process.
Play continues until one player gets all of the ingredients they need for their Order. When their Order is complete in front of
them they yell “Bun-Bun!” and reveal their Order card.
Other players check the accuracy of the order and if it is correct, the player with the full order wins Secret Bun-Bun.
BUN-BUN SNAP! (2 Player)
All Action, Wild and Order Up Cards are removed from the deck,
The Order up cards are shuffled and placed face-down in a pile. Each player selects one card and places it face up in front of them. This is the order they must try to build.
A single grill is placed down between the players.
The rest of the deck is split into two halves and placed face-down in front of the players and either side of the grill.
Players take turns flipping over a card onto the grill as fast as they can without looking making their own pile of cards on the grill. When a match of two ingredients is found, as quickly as they can players must slap their hand down over the matching pair and yell Bun-Bun! The first player to put their hand down over the cards wins the pair.
Players can bun-bun any pair of ingredients provided they are listed on their Order card. The first player to bun-bun matching pairs for all of their Order ingredients, wins Bun-Bun Snap!
SOLO BUN-BUN (1 Player)
Can be played against The Kitchen or without.
All Action, Customer Cards, Order Cards are removed from the deck.
Eight Menus are selected at random and placed face up in a row. 1-3 Orders Card are placed off to the side – this is The Kitchen. (More Cards for The Kitchen make it easier)
Four Base Buns are removed from the deck and placed on any of the Eight Orders.
The deck is shuffled and three cards at a time are drawn and placed face up in front of the player.
The player can only use the top card and must first offer it to the Kitchen to complete its orders. If the Kitchen cannot use it, the player may try to match it to one of their own Orders. If they match it to an order it is placed overlapping the Base Bun, and then subsequent ingredients. See fig. A. Players may then try to use the next face-up card, first checking that it cannot be used in the Kitchen. If they cannot place the face-up card on the Order Cards, they must draw 3 more and repeat the process.
Players can keep up to 4 Top Buns aside to finish orders. The Kitchen gets neither starter BASE BUNS or finishing TOP BUNS and must rely on these turning up in the game.
When an Order needs only its Top Bun, a player can use any free Top Bun to finish their order, stacking the cards up and out of the way in a neat pile to score 1 point. Similar piles must be made for the Kitchen when it scores a point.
Players must try to complete the same amount of Orders as the Kitchen before the Kitchen does it first. A Standard Game uses Three.
Variations (Fixed Grill) – In Fixed Grill a player may not move the Base Bun cards to try their luck building another burger if stuck. The Standard Game is played with Fixed Grill in Play – but players may also opt to play Free Grill and move any unoccupied Base Buns to another Order.
Kitchen 1st. - Kitchen 1st is an additional rule during Free Grill that requires any moved Base Bun to be sent to the Kitchen first. If it cannot be used in the Kitchen a player may use it on another of their own orders.
BLIND BUN-BUN (2 player)
All Action, Wild, and Order-up Cards are removed from the deck. So are Base and Top Bun Cards.
The Order up cards are shuffled and placed face-down in a pile. Each player randomly selects three Order cards and lays them face down in front of them below three grills.
They are then dealt seven cards.
Players each choose one of their ingredient cards to play against their opponent.
Ingredient cards are laid down on the first grill side by side and then Player One turns over their Order Card for the grill revealing the list of ingredients.
The player whose chosen ingredient is closest to the top of the list scores a point. If there is a tie, no-one gets a point. If a player scores a point they must turn the winning card face-down and select another ingredient from their hand to play the second round.
The second player turns over their Order card for their grill revealing the list of ingredients and a comparison is again made of whose ingredient is highest on the list. The player whose chosen ingredient is closest to the top of the list scores a point. If there is a tie, no-one gets a point.
If a player scores a point they must flip the winning card face-down. Points scored are removed from the grill and kept beside each player.
The process is repeated for the next two grills, each player trying to blindly win as many points as they can.
