Quokka Games on Yum Cha and Boba Master

This is a Dark Matter Zine podcast and I’m your host Nalini Haynes. DMZ welcomes Jono from Quokka Games

About Quokka Games

Two brothers from Australia, Jono and Ando, are passionate about games. One day, while talking about some gaming mechanics they accidentally designed a game of their own. They found their calling. They say their mission is to share this happiness with the world. Their Yum Cha game was a PAX 2022 showcase winner and now their new game, Boba Master, is a Pax 2023 Showcase winner.

Quokka Games's Boba Master card pack cover: a cute animal holds a cup of bubble tea

Boba Master by Queensland-based Quokka Games

Boba Master celebrates the team’s love of bubble tea, tying nicely in with their PAX Aus 2022 Indie Showcase winner, Yum Cha. It’s an engaging card game about making bubble tea. It’s full of action, easy to pick up and gets rowdy very quickly. Steal from your opponents and force them to make mistakes. Stir up the game by swapping hands or even swapping bubble teas. Be the first to complete your bubble teas and become the Boba Master!

Yum Cha is a cute little card game based on everyone’s favourite Chinese brunch, also known as Dim Sum. The objective of this casual card game is to accumulate the most points so that you get the honour of paying the bill.

All dim sum cards include Traditional Chinese characters.

Thanks

Thank you to today’s guests, Quokka Games! This was a Dark Matter Zine podcast and I’m your host Nalini Haynes. Next week’s podcast features Baden and Jye Stone, creators of fun card game Alien Frenzy. Thank you for listening, stay safe and have fun.

Acknowledgement of Country

Dark Matter Zine Acknowledges this recording is taking place on the unceded Country of the Bunurong Peoples’ of the Kulin Nation as Traditional Owners and Custodians of this Country. I pay my respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

(I have occasionally acknowledged Country in podcasts. This year I aim to lift my game in many areas, so I plan to Acknowledge Country in every podcast. An Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners can be done by anyone. It’s a way of showing awareness of, and respect for, the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of the land where a meeting or event is held. For more information about Country and respect for Australia’s First Nations, read this post that also has links to useful websites.)
