Tasty Humans is the latest board game from Pangea Games. In this puzzle-solving tile placement game for 1-4 players, insatiable monsters fill their bellies with unsuspecting villagers. Gameplay will feel familiar to fans of Azul and Sagrada.
Players become dragons and trolls who fight over the tastiest villagers. Players must make difficult choices and take risks on swordsmen and wizards who defend the village. In the end, players who carefully fill their monster’s stomach with the tastiest meals will maximize their score and seize victory.

This joint effort between Brandon Rollins of Pangea Games, Tyson Mertlich of the GameSmiths and designer Ryan Langewisch began when Ryan and Tasty Humans won the 2018 Pangea Games “Panjam”. The game has since been through a rigorous development and playtesting process and you can see the results today via print-and-play files or Tabletop Simulator.
Beneath the cute theme, Tasty Humans is a compelling puzzle of tile laying, where decisions carry pros and cons that must be carefully weighed. Each monster has unique cravings, these coupled with unique leader tiles allow players to customize their scoring and create their own path to victory. The choices of where to place consumed tiles in the player board stomachs come with trade-offs that further impact individual strategies.
