First, it was Apples to Apples that turned the game world on its head. This time around it’s tomatoes! Say hello to The Big Fat Tomato Game, a wonderfully weird board game with a wicked twist. Collect and trade tomatoes with your neighbors — then turn around and ruthlessly steal their stockpiles and decimate their crops. The every-man-for-himself mentality that pervades this game creates a frenzied alternative to the cutesy board games that your budding teenager played just a year or two ago, and is a great activity for sleepovers and weekend hangouts.
