Designer – Ellie Dix
Your life-long dream of opening your own restaurant will soon become a reality. But first you must work on the menu, hire some staff, find a location, choose some fixtures and fittings and get the word out across the town. You have money in three different accounts at the bank. Use them wisely, or you may run out of money before you’re ready to open.
Play is simultaneous. On each turn, one player rolls all three dice and each player chooses how to the dice rolls on their own scoresheet.
1 die shows which numbered mini game you are playing this turn. If you choose a six for this die, you may pick any of the five games. 1 die shows what number you will use within that mini game and the third die shows the account you will spend money from in the bank.
The five different mini games all work in different ways…
In game 1 you are creating your menu – by adding elements to plates. In game 2 you are interviewing and hiring staff to work in your cafe. Game 3 enables you to choose the location of your restaurant. In game 4, you’re able to select the best fixtures and fittings and create your own personal style, while game 5 helps you to get the word out to potential customers in the area.
Completing milestones within each games triggers bonuses – giving you extra turns and possibly creating a cascade of chaining actions. Players can also earn rosettes which give extra points at the end of the game.
Total up each of your mini games and add your rosette bonus to give your final score. Most points wins!
