A game simple to learn for the chef in all of us.

  1. Win the game by competing against other players to be the best short order cook. The Short Order Hero wins the game by scoring the most Recipe points at the end of the game.

  2. Five recipes have been ordered, the tickets are available for each player/cook to make. Each cook is dealt 7 Ingredient cards. Cooks in turn, lay down all of the required ingredients, thus making the recipe. In addition a cook can add spices and seasonings to their food to make it better, OR add hairs and cockroaches to their opponent's made recipes to make their food worse.

  3. Cooks can play as many cards from their hand as they wish, but their turn ends once they draw a card from the Ingredients deck.
  4. Each recipe is worth different point values, the added ingredients can either increase or decrease the total point value.

  5. The cook with the highest total recipe value from all their made food is the Short Order Hero!
