I was playing a 4 player game where there were two houses during dinnertime up for grabs.

The house numbered #1 wanted a beer, and another house (Number unimportant in this case) wanted a pizza and a beer.



Now. Assume I am closest to both houses, and have made a pizza and just one beer. According to the rules house number 1 will go off to eat first. Do I have the right to refuse service? Can I tell those filthy commoners from house number 1 to take a hike, so I can fill the bigger order from the other house?

There are no decisions made during the dinnertime phase- it is completely deterministic. So to answer your question: no, you cannot refuse service.

The actions you take during working 9 to 5 and marketing from the previous turn programs what happens during dinnertime. There are no decisions to make during dinnertime - you simply execute the pre programmed steps.

Lol! Imagine going into McDonalds (other fast food joints are available) - asking for a burger, and being told that you can't have one because it's being saved for someone who wants a burger and a drink.

Awesome game!

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

"We've reserved the right not to serve you based on our religious view" is an option in the upcoming expansion FCM: Politically Incorrect.

"We've reserved the right not to serve you based on our religious view" is an option in the upcoming expansion FCM: Politically Incorrect.

This version also has an additional win condition: attain false moral superiority over your competition.

Bonus points if you deny reproductive health to your female employees.

Political discussion IS NOT welcome in the game forums.

Please use the icon when you see disruptive or antagonistic comments or any other violations of the Community Rules. This serves two purposes:

1- using the icon will bring that post to the attention of forum moderators so they can deal with it appropriately. We prefer that you not respond to the post directly. Responding invites the offender to continue, and if you respond aggressively you may end up dragging yourself down with the offender.

2- if enough users flag a post using the icon then that post will be hidden from general view, preventing others from being exposed to it.

Thanks!

You could ask them to find out the answer. Then whatever they answer serve them?
