|Rival Restaurants is the competitive restaurant owning game where food meets fun! Will you beef up your restaurant with maximum upgrades? Make saucy trades and focus on completing recipes? Or chop up the competition with game-changing action cards? The choice is yours. But remember, in the race to become "The Hippest Spot in Town," there can only be one "Wiener!"
The Deluxe Edition comes with acrylic coins and tokens, extra cost guides, point sliders, movement wheels and upgrade clips that are enough components to expand to 8 players and exclusive action cards.
The goal of Rival Restaurants is to be the first restaurant to get to 20 popularity points and be crowned "The Wiener!" Players earn popularity points by buying and trading for ingredients and using them to "cook" (complete) recipes. The more advanced the recipe, the more points it's worth.
In addition, each player controls a chef equipped with his/her own "chef power." Chef powers are asymmetrical and allow players to bend the rules in their favor. There are 12 chefs in the base game of Rival Restaurants. Additionally, at the beginning of the game, each player must choose a restaurant to play with. Each restaurant has a unique level-up structure with rewards for reaching multiple popularity points. Lastly, players can also choose to buy "action cards." Action cards are development cards that are typically for one-time use.
With 12 unique chefs, 8 different restaurants, 48 delicious recipes, and 21 action cards, no two games will ever be the same!
