About the game:
Short Order Hero is a devious, cutthroat, and challenging game for friends wanting to flex their master culinary chops. The story behind the game is that you are one of two to five short order cooks working in a greasy diner. The owner of the diner tells the crew that at the end of the night he will only keep one cook in the kitchen, and the battle is on!  You work your rump roast off to serve the best recipe you can, but your competition will do their very best to sabotage you; as you seek to ruin their recipes and their chances as well.

Can you win and secure the job and become the next Short Order Hero?

Five meals have been ordered and each cook vies to create the best. Each cook is dealt seven Ingredient Cards that they will use to both make their recipe worthy, and make their opponents’ recipes the worst. Perhaps add a little Spices Ingredient Card to perk up the final dish? Or perhaps some Hairs and Cockroaches in your opponent’s recipe to make their dish disgusting? You’re the one vying to become the best short order cook possible, so you get to decide.

The cook with the highest total recipe value from all their prepared dishes wins and becomes the Short Order Hero!
