 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.

2: Roll both dice. Optional Dice Manipulation.
3: DRAFT ingredients from the bag, draft amount shown on dice.
4: MIX: Starting with an empty bowl, place ingredients 1-by-1 until all are dispersed. Disperse ingredient marbles in a clockwise direction.
5: SELECT & PLACE: Select one bowl, place ingredients onto player board matching Recipe Cards.
6: SAVE remaining ingredients from bowl onto extra ingredient shelf.. Save up to three ingredients.

9: END TURN: Pass Dice and Shaker Bag clockwise to the next player.

Once a player completes all their drinks for that round, collect all completed recipes and place them face down by the completed orders tab.  Then place a lemon round marker on the 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.

 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 Sanctuary/ Published Graphill Games

The Sanctuary Signature Card was inspired by Architects of the West Kingdom published by Graphill Games. A unique take on worker placement and the chance to throw other players workers into the prison. Thank you, Shem Phillips, for allowing us to create Sanctuary.

Cosmic Fusion Signature Card/ Published by The Daniel Zayas Company

The Cosmic Fusion Signature Card was inspired by the artwork of Tangled Timelines designed by Daniel Zayas and published by The Daniel Zayas Company. Daniel has been such a great support for us and many other new designers in the industry. Thank you, Daniel, for allowing us to create Cosmic Fusion.

Signature Card Mint Condition/ Published by Talon Strikes Stuido

The Mint Condition signature card was inspired by Vinyl designed by Eric Alvarado and published by Talon Strikes Studios. Eric has been a mentor for us during this process and we wanted to show our appreciation by creating Mint Condition. 

Signature Card Voltage / Published by Metafactory Games

Voltage was inspired by the wonderful engine builder, Fantastic Factory by Metafactory Games, designed by Joseph Z Chen and Justin Faulkner. This talented team of designers is one to keep your eye on that recently was awarded Dice Tower's Gold Seal of Excellence.  We would like to thank both of you for allowing us to create Voltage inspired by your fantastic game.

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 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
