About

Check out a review of Cooking Customers by the Unfiltered Gamer in the middle of this page!

Thanks for Checking us out!

Was our kickstarter video the best quality? No! Instead of spending a bunch of money on a fancy video we have invested our resources into making you the best game we can! We hope you love it!

Why Support our Game? 

 We have dedicated a ton a time and effort into creating the best quality game we can. We have 85 unique cards in our large 120 card deck of main playing cards and our artwork is fantastic, unique and fun.  Plus we have 36 Table/Scoring cards. We are not doing any stretch goals to increase the quality of the game you will receive. Instead we are producing a great quality game from the start with good quality cards, custom dice and a sturdy box with a plastic insert. We hope; with your support, to be able to put out this great game. 

About us 

My family has owned a restaurant since 1960 and I thought to myself while playing another game "I think people would enjoy a restaurant based game as everyone out there has either worked at or at least eaten at a restaurant." After a couple months of rolling ideas around Cooking Customers was born. I really wanted to create a game that captured all the worst elements of restaurant life and spin them to be humorous. I created the cards and had them printed at a local print shop. The first version of the game used standard dice. After a lot of play testing, tweaking and adjustments we now have a great game with custom cards and custom dice. It's simple to play, enjoyable & very funny. Don't take simple to mean easy, this can be a very strategic game! Although the game is more meant for adults my kids love playing it with us. They're 5 and 8. We gave the game a 14 and up playing age due to some more adultish themes and graphics. There is no foul or questionable language.

In other news we had an opportunity to play our game with one of the head buyers for Games by James in WI and MN and they want to carry our game once it's out. So keep an eye out in those stores after our kickstarter is complete.

Production

We have a manufacture all lined up. They come highly recommended, so that's good. All our files are approved, ready for production and the sample they sent us looks great!   

Game Synopsis 

In Cooking Customers you will need to hire cooks to make meals so that you can serve your customers and win the game. All while avoiding horrible kitchen injuries and death, health inspections, complaining customers and so much more.

Game Content

The game consists of:

120 Custom Playing Cards (85 of which are totally unique) 

36 Table Cards

30 Meal tokens

4 custom dice

and a rule book


Object and Game Play

Each Player will need a cook in play to be able to roll the custom dice. Cooks vary in ability from being able to roll 1-4 dice on your cooking roll. 

 The dice indicate whether or not a meal is prepared to serve your table. But beware, if you roll and all the dice say FIRED you'll have to get rid of your cook.

The Table Cards: 


The front of the table cards indicate how many meals you need to complete the table and the back indicates how much money you earn in tips. You must be the first to earn $20 in tips to win the game. 

Cooking Rolls and Scoring

When you have a cook equipped, you can roll the dice. 

 For every meal you roll you can place one token on your table card to indicate a cooked meal. If you roll all fired dice you must fire your cook and discard them. The blank side of the dice has no effect either way. You can add dice to your roll by equipping positive cards on yourself such as the energy drink card or you can take dice away from your opponents by playing negative cards on them.

Positive and Negative Cards

We have over 30 Plus and Minus cards that add and subtract dice from your roll and all of them are unique... no repeats. This makes for great replay-ability. We also have thief's, health inspectors, kitchen fires and so much more! We have 10 unique customer complaint cards but don't worry you'll have the chance to deflect the cards by attempting to cook the customer or using the instant cook cards such as the Cool Off Card. (shown below) We threw everything we could think of into this game to give you the experience of what it's like to work at a restaurant, albeit a humerus and far fetched one. 


The Cards

As you may have noticed the cards have many different colors. We have done this to help players know what kind of card they have in their hand at a glance.

Risks and challenges

When it comes to mass quantity production the biggest challenge is the amount. The smallest order we can make is 1500 which will cost roughly $10,000.
