 French and Italian Digital Translations: 

The rulebook will be translated into French and Italian and will be available as digital downloads from our website. These digital, translated rulebooks will also have a list of all action cards, restaurants, and any other game components that are necessary for gameplay. Although we will not be printing the translated rulebooks, they will be available as PDFs so you are more than welcome to print them at your convenience 


 Thank you to Mark Streed over at Dice Tower for this awesome preview video!

Full-game playthrough by FunHaus! They may not have gotten all the rules right, but they sure had a lot of fun! Fast forward to the 30 minute mark to see where the action really picks up! (Disclaimer: language may not be appropriate for children)



Risks and challenges

Rival Restaurants is our first game. As with all new ventures, we expect there to be a learning curve. However, we are confident that we’ve taken the necessary steps to mitigate those concerns.

We are proud to say that the game is 100% finished. Everything from the art to the components to the rules has been carefully thought out, tested, and re-tested. Because we want to make sure that Rival Restaurants is being produced and delivered at the highest possible level, we have partnered with two of the biggest names in board games: Panda Games and Quartermaster Logistics.

Panda Games is the manufacturer for publishers such as Stonemaier (Scythe, Viticulture), Z Man (Carcassonne, Pandemic), and Red Raven (Islebound, Near and Far). Quartermaster Logistics is widely regarded as the “go-to” fulfillment partner for Kickstarted board games (Fireball Island, Dinosaur Island). We made sure to entrust our game to logistics veterans who fulfill games for a living.

We know and recognize that some things will always be outside of our control. However, we remain resolute in making it our #1 priority to make sure that the game you are delivered is of the highest quality. We can’t wait for Rival Restaurants to be played at your next game night and we hope to receive your support for this project. Thank you.
