The Crazy Cookin' Card Game!
It's a hot competition in the kitchen as chefs try to make their signature soups and win the coveted "Gourmet Stars"! Each chef must complete the same set of different soups. But not everyone may be making the same soup each round, and there's only one big pot! Play your cards wisely to get your key ingredients into the pot before each soup is served! Remember, Too Many Cooks can spoil the soup... but a hot chili pepper can ruin the whole pot!
The title, "Too Many Cooks", comes from the popular idiom "Too many cooks spoil the soup." It means if too many people try to work on the same piece of work, it will surely be spoiled. The same runs true for this clever card game by renown game inventor, Reiner Knizia. Players are all chefs, busily trying to complete their own soup, all while sharing the same pot! For most of you, your soup will probably end up being a complete disaster. But, if you make some smart decisions and play your cards right you might just create something absolutely delicious!
