“The Great Chocolate Chase” is about a chocolate shop as you might guess. It’s advisable that you are a chocolate person to play this game, otherwise you’ll be sick for sure! Too much chocolate everywhere!
This fun and easy-to-play game turns you into a very busy chocolate shop owner, trying to keep your customers happy, and that could get way more difficult than it sounds. People keep coming for their orders. Once you get their orders they want it to go fast. Then, they want the bill! Everything has to be made fast and correctly, otherwise the customers will be mad and won’t tip you well. Chocolates will come in different flavors and shapes and have different ingredients and toppings. You have six stations to prepare the orders:
- Sauce station: orders from the sauce station are the easiest, but you’ll have to wait for it to refill before you can deliver another.
- Flavors: The color of the chocolate will tell you if it’s Dark, Milk, or White chocolate. Match the color of the chocolate to the button of the mixing station.
- Shapes: the chocolate press can mold chocolates into one of three different shapes.
- Ingredients: the colored stripes on a chocolate will tell you what ingredients you may need to include.
- Toppings: toppings include everything from cashews to coconut.
- Infusions: round chocolates with a hole in the center. Match the color inside the hole to the button on the infusions station.
