Orccon 2019 Days 1 and 2

We're here at Orccon in Los Angeles and boy has it been fun!

It still amazes us when people come up to our table and say "Hey! You're the guys from Kickstarter!" It's been an absolute whirlwind of a journey as first time creators and we are so humbled by how enthusiastically Rival Restaurants has been received by all of you. Thank you so much for welcoming us into your community. :)

For those of you in the LA area today, please feel free to stop by and say hello! We'll be at the LAX Hilton in both the vendor and open play areas starting from the afternoon.

Also, because many of you have been asking...

Here are the chefs (and their POWERS) in all their glory!

One of the best parts about playing Rival Restaurants is having 12 chefs to choose from, each with his/her own unique power! Even though they're listed in the rule book, we realize that some of you haven't seen all the cool things your chefs can do, so here they are for you to see!

Which chef are you most excited to use?

Welcome to the Restaurant Business!

Now that every backer is going to receive their very own blank restaurant, we can't wait to see what kinds of unique eateries you all will come up with!

And finally...

New Stretch Goal: No need to whine, we have WINE!

Even though we were already fully stretched, as a special thank you to all of our backers, we have added one final stretch goal--something that should really lift your spirits: WINE!

How do you make a Gourmet Recipe even more gourmet? With a little wine of course! Add this newest Mystery Mart ingredient to your Gourmet Recipe and earn 1 extra popularity point when you cook. Now that's what we call a wine pairing!

Thank you again for being the best backers around! We are so excited for how far we've come and cannot thank you enough for your support. Let's have a great final few days!

      I got to meet them at Stategicon and try out the game. I loved it!!

      It’s a really good game for new and returning players. The game is really in the buying phase. You have 1 minute each round to buy what you need OR you can bargain with other players for it or to get it for you! I can only see this getting more and more fun, the more you play it.

      This game is NOT cooperative, but without cooperation, no one will get any where fast.

      I have over 500 games and I have never met a game like this. I see it staying in my collection for a long long time and getting lots of play.

      The only complaint I have is that I don’t have the game already. But, since one of the designers is local to me, who knows.
