About this project

You are one of 2-5 short order cooks working in a greasy diner. The battle is on when the owner tells the crew that only one cook will still have a job by the end of the night! Work your rump roast off to serve the best recipe you can. All the while still making time to sabotage your opponents and hurting their chances as well.

Can you win, secure the job, and become the next Short Order Hero?

With concept and illustration by former Disney and Warner Bros. artist, Greg Wray, players are sure to delight in the style and design put into this game. 

Short Order Hero is a 2 to 5 player game that can be played in a quick 20 to 30 minutes. Heroes can be aged 8 and up.

 

 

        

 

 
Short Order Hero is a devious, cutthroat, and challenging game for friends wanting to flex their master culinary chops.

The Short Order Hero wins the game by scoring the most recipe points at the end of the game.  

During each 20-30 minute game, five recipes are drawn and placed within reach of all players. Each cook is dealt seven Ingredient Cards that they will use to both fulfill a recipe and make their opponents' recipes fail. 

Cooks may play as many cards from their hand as they wish, but their turn ends when they have to draw a card from the Ingredients Deck.

Once a cook has played all of the Ingredient Cards required by a recipe, they add it to their pile of completed orders. Each completed order is worth different point values. Spices and Seasonings - as well as sabotage Ingredients such as Black Hairs and Cockroaches - can be added to completed orders to bump their point values up or down, respectively.  

The cook with the highest total recipe value from all their completed orders wins to become the Short Order Hero!

Once we reach our goal, we're not done! We have additional Ingredients and Recipes we'd like to add to the game. We'll also add to existing Recipes these Ingredients where it makes sense. Spread the word about the project and help us make a better game! 

 

  ...more to come?

Here are some early independent reviews by game reviewers. We sent them early prototype copies of the game to try out. See what they have to say! Please keep in mind that the end game rules and cleaver rules have been changed since these videos based on feedback.

 


Wyvern Gaming, is three best buddies who have been playing games together since we could roll dice. We've always had many ideas for projects and games and now with your help we can continue the fun. Our day jobs include software development, project management, training, and marketing, so we feel like we have the right skills to pull this off.

This will be our third title for Wyvern Gaming. The previous two, Cthulhu: A Deck Building Game and Onami, only became a reality because of people like you that backed us on Kickstarter. 

 

Since these Kickstarters, we are very proud to have partnered up with publishers and distribution channels. Wyvern Gaming is now a design studio with full-time personal working on our games.

WE NEED YOUR HELP MAKING SHORT ORDER HERO A REALITY

Kickstarter is our proving ground for new games. Our games start here, and the ones that are successful get published into our distribution and retail channels. So we need your help to make Short Order Hero a reality. 

Just like we did for Cthulhu: A Deck Building Game and Onami we plan to launch Short Order Hero at Gen Con. This year we'll be found inside the Ninja Division booth and running demos of all our games in the game room. Gen Con 2017 is going to be great time come join us!

Shipping

Shipping for the Kickstarter rewards will be collected during the pledge manager process. Below are the estimated shipping costs you can expect to pay upon completion of the Kickstarter to get your goods.

Our current estimate for shipping costs are listed below.  

  • Canada: $10 - 12
  • USA: $10 - $12
  • Central America: $20 - $22
  • South America: $20 - $25
  • British Isles: $5 - $6
  • Central Europe: $6 - $8
  • Western & Southern Europe: $7 - 10
  • Eastern Europe & Russia: $10 - $13
  • East Asia: $4 - $9
  • Japan: $11 - $13
  • South East Asia: $12 - $17
  • Pacific: $13 - $15

These estimates are based off of the base game. Please note that these are ESTIMATES ONLY and may change as we unlock more items or if you purchase additional rewards. All pledges which are finalized after the pledge manager deadline (i.e. late) will ship from the United States, and will likely incur additional shipping costs and potential delays depending on your location. Packages which were undeliverable due to an incorrect or incomplete address being provided, or failing to notify us in a timely manner of a change of address, will incur additional shipping costs in order to be reshipped.

If we get enough backers in other regions of the world we'll also make those customs friendly. Spread the word in your country to help lower your customs cost.

Risks and challenges

This is our third title and we now have the backing of publishing and distribution partners so our risks have changed. We feel pretty confident at this point that we can make this project successful! However, there is always the possibility of delays in any project, including:

Development Delays
Manufacturing Delays
Customs Delays
Shipping Delays

Our biggest challenge is getting the word out. People love it when they see it, we just need to put it in front of them. Any help you can provide by sharing our project will help us.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

By pledging on this Kickstarter you acknowledge the following:

1. Items shown during the Kickstarter are prototypes and the final product, including cards, look, materials, and other content may vary from those shown while the Kickstarter is active.

It is your responsibility to provide Wyvern Gaming with a correct address in a timely manner, and to ensure that the provided address is deliverable by normal methods and standard regional postal services.

Further, you agree that you are responsible for import duties or any other duties, taxes, or fees that may be payable to complete delivery of your items.
