Mixology is a gorgeous cocktail card game for 2-5 players. You win by creating the best selection of cocktails for your bar. Complex cocktails or cocktails that require rarer ingredients will score higher points. The first players whose menu contains 25 points wins the game.
In each turns, players secretly choose 3 out of 9 available actions cards to gather ingredients/make drinks/hiring a bartender or various other actions. The chosen actions cards are arranged faced down from left to right. All players will take turn around the table performing their first action card. Then proceed to the second action card and so on.
Every actions and the sequence you put them in matter as your friends might snatch the ingredients or cocktails you're aiming for. And more powerful actions will have harder conditions to meet. This makes the players try to push their luck as much as possible by sneaking in more powerful actions. Though these moves are easily blocked. But when well placed, even one action can place you in the lead!
