It's the eve of Festo in the kingdom of Gloutama. All the halflings are busy cooking and baking, since it's their annual celebration of food and drinks, and we all know how much halflings love both of those things.
They have all been looking forward to this event since the last Festo, and are trying to come up with the most delicious recipes, to celebrate the beginning of autumn.
But first, they must collect the best ingredients for their masterpieces. Needless to say, the market has never been busier, and all the other inhabitants of the kingdom have come to the capital to sell their most precious ingredients. The troll has brought his delicious meat, the pixies are selling amber-coloured honey (which they no doubt stole from somewhere), the orc brought the finest spices from the South, the magician has heaps of wonderful mushrooms from the enchanted forest, the elf came with tons of juicy fruit, and the dwarf brought the necessary potatoes.
It's up to you to collect all the necessary ingredients to surprise and delight the other halflings, and when the Festo ends, to win the coveted title of master cook!
Festo! Is a game for 2 to 5 players that combines worker placement and area control, where players try to gather as many ingredients as they can, but also use the powers of the different races to turn the game to their advantage.
These ingredients are used to prepare and collect different types of dishes, that in turn will yield victory points. The player with the highest score wins the game!
