Pie Town is a game about competitive baking in which players try to create the most spectacular pies while keeping their secret recipe secret from the competition. The game uses a dice-based worker placement mechanic, which players use to collect materials, bake pies, and sell them for profits. Along the way, they try to deduce the secret recipes of their opponents.
The game comes with 7 game boards, 16 dice, 81 pie ingredients, 78 markers and tokens, 4 secret recipe boxes, 1 cloth bag, and 4 dry erase cards with markers. Pie Town is the first published design from Daniel Fremgen, and features illustrations by Charlie Bink (Wildlife Safari, Trekking the National Parks). It is intended for 2 to 4 players, ages 14 and up, and takes a little over an hour to play. MSRP is $45.00.
