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!
To play, you’ll need to print a sheet for each player. You’ll receive both colour and greyscale versions of the game to download upon purchase. Print whichever version you prefer. You may like to laminate your scoresheets and use dry erase pens to play. This will reduce your need to print new sheets out. NB: Please print the two pages of each scoresheet on two separate pages, not front and back of the same page.
All the instructions for Restaurantrepreneur are displayed on the scoresheets. You just need 3 dice and a pen. To play, you write directly onto the placemat.
Any number of players can play the game. Restaurantrepreneur is also ideal for playing online via videoconferencing.
