Das Spiel mit dem Essen

Know-How on nutrition


The nutrition circle on the board shows comestibles which are sorted into six groups, surrounded by a movement track with task cases showing symbols for Meal, Fitness, Question Mark and Directional Arrow. If you are first to solve a minimum of twelve tasks and placing a “Thumbs up” chip in each of the six groups of food, you will win.

The playing pieces begin on one of the directional arrows. The active player rolls two dice, moves the sum of pips on the track and then solves the task on the arrival case. If you roll a double, a fellow player might be able to solve the task, either the left neighbor, the right neighbor or a player of your choice. For a Question Mark, you answer a question; in case of a wrong answer and a double, the other player may answer. For Meal, you select tiles for comestibles suitable for the task; in case of a double, the active player and the fellow player both complete the task individually, the quicker and correct player wins the duel. For Fitness, you do the respective exercise for 10 seconds; in case of a double, the fellow player may do the same, and both have completed the task. For the Directional Arrow, you select a task.

Fora correct solution of the task, you may place a chip into the group of comestibles indicated on the card, or into a group of your choice. If you solved a second task for a specific group, you turn over the first chip to its „Thumbs up“ side.

The placement of chips in the groups covers food in the group and this makes the solving of some tasks more difficult. Nice mechanism and a good game about an important topic that is of interest for adults, too.
