Comments from Reviewers & Gamers
"...for just a handful of cards, it packs a lot of game in there. It really does. I am not generally a fan of lighter fillery type stuff, but this is a great example of the genre...it's actually legitimately fun with both children and adults or a mix of the two as we experienced first-hand...Assuming it's under $25, I would call it a fantastic deal. It's really a lot of fun!" -- Phil Christiansen, Gaming on a Budget (full video summary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbCuPQQ9e54)
"...I really like this game. Fans of games like Burger Joint or For Sale might like this one. I recommend this one for pretty much anyone. This is a really great little game that can be carried anywhere and enjoyed by everyone. It’s simple enough that anyone can learn it in a few minutes. If you need a really neat looking game that’s fun to play, then this one might make your mouth water. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it." -- Jonathan Nelson, Gaming Bits (full review: https://jlnelson73.wordpress.com/2014/08/14/preview-review-of-burger-builder/)
"It is a great blend of Euro and American gaming. With fewer players, it is all about the logic. With more players, it can become a party game of jumping on good deals when they come up. Production value is excellent with eye-catching art, and, as the kickstart progresses, special bonuses such as stainless steel Exclusive cards will become available." -- Jeff Provine, Blogcritics (full review: https://blogcritics.org/card-game-review-burger-builder/)
"The art and design are outstanding. The rule book is very well written so you and your friends will be having fun making burgers in no time at all! Burger Builder is quick to learn and easy to teach. It's a great game to play with friends and family, and the theme and portability make it a perfect game to bring to picnics, camp outs, and other family & friend outings. Just make sure you don't play this on an empty stomach, otherwise you'll be craving for a nice juicy burger!" -- Jim Wittwer, Boardgaming.com
"... I found it to be a really fun game that’s easy to teach and fast to get through, a really nice filler-type card game that you can either play once while a bigger, more complex game is getting set up, or as is the case with my group, they’re perfectly content playing a bunch of games right after the other all night..." -- Josh Willhite, Board Game Geek
"...We had a chance to test the game, and we really like the concept!..." -- Andy Brimer, Board Game Geek

The Burger Builder is a casual card drafting game for 2-4 players about competing to serve customers' burger orders. The game is easy to learn, yet many different strategies could be considered. Players take turns to perform one or more of the following actions: offer to trade ingredients with other players, serve any order(s) in the lineup to generate profit or put any order on promotion to temporarily prevent other players from serving that order, and finally stock up the inventory for next round.
Every ingredient has its characteristic: some are more commonly used, some give greater profit margin, and some are themed ingredient in a combo which gives bonus profit. Always keep an eye on your competitors' hands while maintaining your own hand well-balanced. You may have to flexibly change your drafting strategy to counteract your competitors upon certain conditions such as ingredient shortage or combo completion attempts!

Risks and challenges
With over 10 years of experience in design & production, we are confident in controlling the high quality and printing lead time. However, we have our greatest concern in shipping because it takes some time to sort the different shipping requests for each backer. Also the cargo flight/ship transit schedule may change at last minute especially September is still a hurricane season in Hong Kong. We will try to push our production team and hope to steal some time from here and there so that backers can receive the goods asap.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
