OVERVIEW

The game’s goal is to complete as many customer orders as possible and earn the most tips by the end of the night. Sound simple? With each passing round, your unserved customers will get frustrated waiting for their food and become unhappy with your service; in turn, they’ll give you smaller tips when you serve them. If you continue to ignore your customers, they will walk out of the cafe, and at end of the game, you’ll have to give some of your tips to the owner. If that wasn’t enough, you’ll be competing against other players for those much-needed menu items.

With a smidge of strategy, a dash of tactics, and a pinch of luck, you could be crowned the most legendary server!

RULEBOOK CLARIFICATIONS AND FAQS

Gameplay: Phase 1 - Can I put more than one of my servers at the same food station?

"Players should note that you cannot place a server at a station where you already have a server."

Rulebook Pg. 5

Gameplay: Phase 1 - What happens if I can't legally place a server at a station?

"In the rare case that a player cannot legally place a server at a location, that player may choose one food token from a type that is not blocked by an event card, nor is a location where they currently have placed a server."

Rulebook Pg. 5

Gameplay: Phase 1 - Can I place a server at a station blocked by event card?

No.

Gameplay: Phase 2 - Can you share a tip if there is no one in front of you?

No. "...you can only move your server up in line if there is another server in front of you..."

Rulebook Pg. 6

Gameplay: Phase 2 - Sharing tips, pushing versus jumping servers

If you are in the one spot and another player is in the two spot you can either share one tip with the chef to move to the two spot and push the other player back to the one spot OR you can share two tips with the chef and jump over the other player. The other player is not pushed back in that case.

For clarity, if all three spots at a food station are full and the player last in line (in this case the 1 spot) wants to move to the three spot. They would pay the chef two tips, move to the three spot, pushing the current player in the three spot to the two spot, which would then push the player in the two spot down to the one spot.

Simplified

  • land on another server = push them back
  • land on an empty spot = other servers are jumped and do not get pushed.
Gameplay: Phase 2 - I got pushed to the back of the line, can I now share tips with the chef to change my position?

"Servers who are moved to the back of the line do not get the opportunity to change positions." Each station is resolved only once per round.

Rulebook Pg. 6

Gameplay: Phase 2 - Can the player at spot one just pay one tip to go to spot two even if it would not bump someone, leaving the player on spot three in their place?

Yes, that is correct.

Gameplay: Phase 2 - I'm the last server at multiple stations, can I share tips and move up at all the stations?

No. "...you can only move your server up in line at one station per round, even if your servers are last in line at multiple food stations."
