Great Chili Cookoff
From the Publisher...
The great chefs come from around the world for just this competition. Are they making streudel, Peking duck, or chickenalmandine? Heck no! This is real food, good ol’ fashioned American cookin’ from the heartland. These cooks are here to make some stuff that sticks to your ribs and gives a nice warm feeling to everyone involved, so it’s time to see what you can do...it’s time for The Great Chili Cook-Off!
Players try and take tricks to capture the ingredients necessary to complete their secret recipe. Taking a trick requires playing a high card, but if cards are tied, the player who played that value last gets the trick--so there is a HUGE disadvantage in going first.

|Way more fun than you'd ever expect it to be, Great Chili Cookoff takes a fun family theme and mixes in some spicy trick-taking action. Players compete to take the ingredients they need for their recipes; certain high-point cards are useless if they're not in your recipe, but do you want to keep another chef from completing their high-point recipe?
Fast-playing, affordable, nicely produced (the wooden pepper tokens are awesome), and great for families. Definitely a gem you may not have heard of.
