About

Introducing, Foodie Kitchen!

Foodie Kitchen is a strategic dish building card game for anyone and everyone that loves food! Become the head foodie of Foodie Kitchen by preparing delicious dishes and collecting kitchen tools. Along the way, you’ll have many action cards, such as Dumpster Dive, Art of Chopsticking, and Steal The Recipe, to stop the other foodies from winning! 

Foodie Kitchen is a light and casual game for 2-5 players and plays in 15-45 minutes.

Foodie Kitchen is fun, quick, easy-to-learn and has just the right balance of strategy and luck so that no one game is ever the same. Play Foodie Kitchen with family and friends!

Why We Created Foodie Kitchen

Before diving into the mechanics of the game, we wanted to quickly share why we created Foodie Kitchen.

1. We wanted to create a tabletop game that was fun and enjoyable for family and friends of all ages. We are big fans of tabletop games because it takes us away from our screens and allows us to be offline and in the moment with the people we enjoy.

2. We wanted the game to revolve around food because it’s universal and brings people together. Because coming together and sharing a meal is the most communal and binding thing in almost every place in the world, we wanted to bring that in game form.

3. We wanted to instill in people a curiosity for different cultures through the dishes in our game. The world is a beautiful place with a lot of delicious food and awesome people with different backgrounds. Through the dishes in our game, we wanted people to become open to other cultures. 

We're hoping Foodie Kitchen does well so that we can introduce even more dishes from other cultures. We'd love to hear what dishes you would love to see next! DM us your requests to @foodiekitchencardgame on Instagram.

4. We wanted to use Foodie Kitchen as a simplified intro into cooking. We understand that our cards aren’t sufficient enough to serve as recipes, but we wanted to break down the intimidation of cooking by presenting dishes as a sum of small building blocks, ingredients in this case.

5. We wanted to help feed the hungry. Being hungry sucks but there are so many out there that have to go through the pain of malnutrition on a daily basis. We wanted to help, so we'll be donating a portion of the proceeds of every game to Action Against Hunger, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to solving this problem.

Thanks for taking the time to read about our story. Now onto the game...

 The First Foodie to 11 Points Wins!

Follow below or read the rules here.

5 Ways To Earn Points

Create Complete Dishes

  • A dish is worth the numbers of ingredients it takes to create the dish.
  • You only earn points if the dish is complete.
  • Example: It takes four ingredients to completely create a loco moco. So you would get 4 points for successfully creating a loco moco!

-----

Create Complete Dishes + Fancy Ingredients

  • If you use a FANCY ingredient to create a dish, add one additional point per FANCY ingredient used.

-----

Collect Tool Cards

  • You get 3 points for a set of 3 of the same tool cards.
  • You get 1 point for a set of any 5 tool cards and one additional point per each additional tool card

-----

Collect A-rating Cards 

  • You get 4 points for a set of 3 A-rating cards. However, you must maintain the highest number of A-rating cards in the game in order to get the 4 points.
  • There is no tie. The first player to have reached the highest number of A-rating gets the 4 points.
  • Example: Player 1 gets 3 A-rating cards first. Player 2 gets 3 A-rating cards after Player 1 has already collected 3 A-rating cards. Only Player 1 gets the 4 points.
  •  You get 4 points for a set of 3 A-rating cards. However, you must maintain the highest number of A-rating cards in the game in order to get the 4 points.

-----

Collect Victory Point Cards 

  •  You get 1 point for each Victory Point card

What Happens Next?

Thank you for taking the time to read through all the details of our game. We hope that we were able to show you the time, energy, and thought that we put into Foodie Kitchen.

From the start of the campaign, we'll be in constant communication with our manufacturer to share the progress. We'll be doing this so we can get Foodie Kitchen made and shipped out to you as soon as possible, so you can start enjoying it with your family and friends.

We'll also be donating a portion of the backing to the nonprofit organization Action Against Hunger. Action Against Hunger fights to save the lives of malnourished children, so we want to support them as soon as possible as well.

Thanks and let's stay in touch: @foodiekitchencardgame on Instagram
