A pinch of this and a dash of that and a culinary masterpiece is made! In A La Carte, players take on the role of chefs looking to season their dishes, attain the right heat, and complete various recipes. Each player gets their own mini hotplate and pan that they fill with ingredients. They can spend actions to increase the heat on their hotplate, add ingredients to the pan, or even try and steal a recipe from another player. Cooking is an art, and if the chefs over season a dish or turn up the heat too much, everything will be ruined. Players must use all of their skills to come out on top in this silly, tactile cooking competition.
