Competition is tough in the world of sweets. You need to plant your fields strategically with cacao, coffee, peanuts, and vanilla, then use those beans efficiently to make the best confectionaries around! Using every resource is necessary to beat out your competition.
In Dulce, each player has their own deck with beans on one side of each card and a factory on the other, as well as their own field in which to plant. Every round, one player draws a card and the others search their deck for the same card, then everyone chooses their action simultaneously: plant, harvest, or build a new factory. Planting gains you new cacao, coffee, peanut, and vanilla resources, and harvesting allows you to use those resources in your factories.
Each confectionary made in your factories earns you one point, and at the end of twenty rounds, the player with the most points wins!
In First Take Fridays we offer hot takes on games that are new to us. This week we have Cat in the Box, Dulce, Land vs Sea, Bag of Chips, and The Spill.
