Gaining Points

Chef points:

  • Chef must make a meal with the stated food type as a base (not an additive) and have the Stat/s within the stated Range/s.
  • Chef gets 1 point per player eating his festival meal if player has not eaten the same meal made by another Chef.
  • If Chef cleans out the Kitchen before all servings are eaten, Chef forfeits all points gained from that meal.
  • Duration of meal is paramount in enticing Gourmands to eat. See Gourmand points below.

Gourmand points:

  • 1 point per each minute of Duration of festival meal.

Two extra rules during the Cooking Festival can mess with getting points:

  • At least one of the added rules below will happen.
  • Adding the rule that each meal eaten must be unique to receive points.
  • Or adding the rule that the Gourmand can eat only one meal per Chef to receive points.
  • Both added rules above might happen.
