Mardi Gras Madness

Mardi Gras Madness

– A light, family card game where players go to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, collecting sets of beads, cups, doubloons, and other “throws .”  Designed by New Orleans natives, Mardi Gras Madness is a thematic parade experience complete with special “Throw Me Something” cards that give you an edge in boxing our the crowd and securing your favorite throw cards. A great experience for up to six players, just like Carnival itself, the more players the merrier! If you miss the parades, try the dedicated solo mode for single-player fun. Compete against the sneaky Mardi Bot AI to snatch your favorite throws before the crowd steals them away!  1-6 players. 25 minutes.
