Just played this game for the first time and really enjoyed it. I'm curious what the title means. Can someone please translate? Thanks!

I'm also curious to find out. It has something to do with chickens gambling for the best bites of sushi, but a lot of the Zoch titles seem to be jokes on familiar German sayings and usually with a chicken/fowl theme.

Sushi = sushi
Zock = gambling (moderate slang)
im = in (in the)
Gockel = rooster
wok = wok (that chinese pan)

As a whole, it is obviously intended to sound similar to "Hickhack im Gackelwack" (Pick Picknic) and "Heckmeck am Bratwurmeck" (Pickomino)

dont forget that the publisher is called "Zock" too, but of course it also means gambling.

I sincerely hope you don't always use an "H" instead of a "K", because the name of the publisher is ZOCH.
