Safe – The Newest Addition to A Taste for the King

In my efforts to make A Taste for the King more interactive between players, I have added a new mechanism to the game. This comes in the form of an ability: Safe. Each player starts with the ability and can use it to score one dish from the current player (the taster) when they discard a dish. This is like them saying “Oh no, I know for a fact that dish is safe, see? I’ll eat it!” The hope is to increase taunting and give players more incentive to do so.

Players can regain the ability when any other player completes a course on their menu or by revealing the Safe action card during their turn. The hope is this will also speed up the flow of the game a little as players will be able to score dishes outside of their turn, thus resulting in fewer rounds for the game to be complete.

My hope is that Safe will give players more incentive to interact outside of their turn. It remains to be seen how this pans out.

If you would like to test the game, feel free to contact me on any social media platform.
