King Chocolate Board Game
A little bit chocolate, some cooperation, and a lot of strategy, go into become the king (or queen) of chocolate! Lay your tiles strategically, and take control of key steps in the production of chocolate and you might have what it takes. From one reviewer at islaythedragon.com: “King Chocolate is a fascinating game unlike anything else in my collection. Its mix of cooperation and competition, its combination of tile-laying and production chains, its simple rules and short playtime, and its distinctive look and theme make it a worthy package…it is a very good game, one that rewards repeat play and fills the one-hour slot quite nicely, even with a rules explanation.”
*contains no actual chocolate or cacao
Game description from the publisher:
You know there is money in chocolate, but it doesn’t just grow on trees. You need to control the links in the production chain to get your cut of the cash, to make sure the cocao flows through your businesses instead of your competitors’.
Sometimes you need to help your customers and suppliers to help yourself. If you are wily, you can figure out a way for your competitors to do the work for you. Create monopolies, cut off the supply chain, disrupt other players’ finely honed plans — do whatever it takes to become King Chocolate.
The fruit of the cacao tree goes through six steps to become chocolate. You can control only a few of these steps, so you must work with your fellow chocolate makers to keep the chocolate flowing through the production chain. It sounds cooperative and friendly — but did we mention that the chocolate maker with the most money wins? Things always get complicated when money is involved.
To ensure your portion of the production process is used the most so that it earns you cash, occasionally you’ll help your customers and suppliers. At the same time, you will attempt to crush your competitors, force others to help you, and manipulate the supply chain.
You’ll do whatever it takes to become the king of chocolate!
