  In On The Rocks players assume the role of tonight's Mixologists, completing multiple drink orders throughout the night.  On a player's turn you will handle complaints, roll dice to draft ingredients, mix the ingredients in the mixing area, place and select one bowl of ingredients to the player board, save any extra ingredients, resolve any special actions, collect and use tips, then pass the dice and shaker bag to the next Mixologist.

Once a player completes all their drinks for that round, collect all completed recipes and place them face down by completed orders tab and place the lemon round marker on their player board. The Player will then select an additional 3-4  recipes, setting up their next order.

Apply any remaining marbles and extra ingredients to the player's board new orders.

Continue play until all 3 rounds of orders are completed and the Last Call is made. Calculate all completed drinks and tips to see who has the highest earned value of the night.

 Four Board Gamers Review

 Throughout the campaign, we will continue to unlock additional signature cards that have been inspired by games that we love and the people behind them.

Signature Card Kraken |  Published by Minion Games
Signature Card Kraken | Published by Minion Games

In memory of James Mathe, a man who was willing to take his time to teach new designers a thing or two about the industry.  He was an honest man and we appreciate the time that he had given us in life. So in his memory, we would like to give one of our Signature Cards to all backers inspired Dead Men Tell No Tells

Risks and challenges

We wanted to thank you all for being so supportive of us during the past year as we continued to design and develop “On The Rocks”. That being said we do know that running and fulfilling a Kickstarter campaign comes with its own risks and challenges. From manufacturing delays, freight, and fulfillment logistics.

At this point, our game art is 99% complete, with only additional promotional card designs and finalizing the box art to complete the project. We have selected our manufacturer, pledge manager and fulfillment company in attempting to stay ahead of any issues that can occur.

We promise that in the event an issue was to occur during production or fulfillment, we will be upfront and transparent with our backers. We will continue to work as hard as we have over the past year until “On The Rocks” is sitting on your game table and after. We are looking forward to continuing this journey with your support.

Thank you,
Michael and Christina Pittre
