How to Play

When you click on the ‘Open for Business’ icon at the top right of your screen, your list of orders for the month appears below it. To start, you’ll have one minute to fill as many orders as you can.

To fill an order, drag and drop the three correct ingredients in any order to line up with the correct container. (This line of three can be horizontal or vertical.) When you have the right ingredients lined up, click the container and it will pick up those ingredients. You have now filled an order! Fresh ingredients and containers will appear as you play. Some orders (indicated by a green bar) are time-sensitive.

Continue filling orders until the timer runs out. You have completed one month of business! Check out the ‘Diary’ page on the left of your screen to see a breakdown of how many coins you earned and how much you paid in rent and wages for that round. You’ll also see how many orders you filled incorrectly. Your total cash on hand is shown in the bottom left-hand corner of your screen. 

As you earn more coins, you’ll have money to spend on skills that will win you the Royal endorsement. Click the parchment icon at the top left of your screen to access the skills page. Here, you can choose from a variety of paths to master every aspect of your business, and also keep track of what you’ve learned. 

Click a skill icon to learn about its benefits and decide if it’s right for you. Start from any one of the four corners of the skill tree and work your way towards the center. You can choose how you want to progress, but note that outer skills are prerequisites for skills that are closer to the center.

As you progress through the skill tree, new ingredients and containers will be added to the game board and more of your orders will be time-sensitive. You will earn more from these items, but on the other hand, you’ll also need to spend more for rent and wages. Good Luck!
