Welcome to your pizzeria - where you are in charge and the responsibility is on your shoulders! 

Become a world-class pizza chef and test your skills against other competing pizzerias. Pizzeria Boss is a set-collecting and hand management card game with just a little bit of a “take that!” element (let’s face it, sometimes it’s fun to stick it to your neighbor). With limited resources, can you complete more orders than your competitors before the end of the game? Need some help along the way? Great! You can bring in managers and even The Boss to help out! (Let’s just hope that they don’t get fired before they serve their usefulness.) 

To win, you’ll need to play the right cards at the optimal time. The game comes with two decks of cards, the “Boss deck” and the “Order deck”. The two decks work in conjunction with each other. The "Order deck" determines what toppings you need on your pizza for an order while the Boss deck provides the toppings and all the little things needed to help your business along the way. If you play your cards right, you might even disrupt your competitors a little bit. Once you order is prepared, you gotta cook it in the oven--but beware! Until that order is done and the money is in your pocket, that order might get cancelled! That's just how pizza life goes, right? Health inspectors, cancelled orders, not having what you need in stock - these are all possible disasters that could happen. But there are also the good things - helpful managers, a boss willing to lend a hand or customers who pay for their order early. Explore all these things and more in Pizzeria Boss. 

Here's a link to the official rules!

 To give you a little taste, here’s a preview of the Boss deck: 

 And here is a preview of the Order deck: 

It's a fun, light-hearted game. It’s easy to teach with great replay value. For families or groups, this game really fits into all gaming settings. It is fast-paced, but also packed full of choices - just like a real pizzeria!

Risks and challenges

Our Story So Far...

We, Falling Star Entertainment, are a brand new company; instead of going to a bank to ask for a loan, we would rather just take this game straight to the people who want to play it. This isn't a venture we enter into lightly though--we've already done as much leg work as we could to help this process go smoothly. From play testing, to research,to producing art, and everything else in between; we feel we have prepared everything we can to ensure YOU get the game we promise you.

First off, we've already collaborated with our printers and followed their advice on preparing the game for printing as well as how to ensure this project isn’t just a “one-time-thing.” After Pizzeria Boss hits, we will already be primed to get production rolling on our second, super-secret project (more to come on that later!).

Our next steps are building a grassroots infrastructure of friends, families, brick and mortar gaming stores, social media, and business associates to spread the word and help us reach our goals. We want you to be a part of that! Pledging your support not only helps Pizzeria Boss become a reality, but also launches a new company.

We all love games- why else would we be here? We all want to see the hobby grow. So your pledge is something that will help Falling Star Games grow, help the gaming industry grow, and help gamers like us and yourselves grow.

Thank you for your support! Ciao!
