I couldn’t resist making these Millennial Loteria flower pots! If you know my history, I started my design career making Loteria flower pots and selling them to hundreds of shops around the country. I stopped because I couldn’t and didn’t want to spend every waking moment making them. But every time I see a new Loteria version, I like to make flower pots!
Millennial Loteria is a new game by designer Mike Alfaro. He reinterpreted the game through the lens of being a millennial and being Latino.
Also scroll down to see a fabulous video by Subculture Recall! Thania shows how to make a Loteria costume inspired by the game!
So, yeah, I had to cut up the game HOWEVER – I suggest buying TWO games so you can craft with one and play with the other.
My friends, Thania and Jose from Subculture Recall invited me over to play the game. We had pizza, burritos, wine, and snacks. Thania had never seen the game before and she had fun reading all the names on the cards.
The game comes with tablets for up to ten players, the caller’s deck, bitcoins for marking your spaces, and instructions. The game is gorgeous and the cards and tablets are a high quality coated paper, very sturdy and hearty!
