So, its rare that we get a game while it is on Kickstarter - or even before! But this is the impossibly cute Frenemy Pastry Party that we picked up at Essen last year by Taiwanese designer Jesse Li, and currently getting a US rebrand from Solis Games. You might remember Jesse from the amazing Ponzi Scheme?
Well, these are cute animals having a pastry contest, in a box that you might get a cute Taiwanese pastry in. But they ARE frenemies, right?
In Frenemy Pastry Party, every player takes a role in different animal which have their own preferable taste of ingredients which means every animal card has different scoring conditions.
Every player will take one ingredient card from the table for their collection or choose one cake card to bake on their turn.
Choosing cake card, if you choose to bake a cake, you have to collect all the ingredients shows on the card then cost these ingredients to score for 5, if you don't have all the ingredients, you can ask for other players. But this action will also let your opponent score based on how many ingredients they gave you.
The other players can also give you wrong information about the ingredients they have in their hands in order to prevent you from scoring.
You can also collect specific ingredients according to the scoring condition you have on the animal card and each ingredient counts for 1 point.
The winner is the one who has the highest score.
Let's see how clever and how mean you are!
This is NOT the Kickstarter version. Just to be confusing. So you don't get the extra fox. No fox given, you might say. On the plus side, you do get it right now...
