Players have 10 minutes. A dish is a poker hand. Higher numbers are more expensive. Aces high, Jokers low. When time is up, players converse about menu to the Client. If Client is satisfied, gain a Michelin star, Head is promoted to Client, and Client becomes a Prep. If Client is unsatisfied, lose a Michelin star and Head is demoted to Prep. A Sous is promoted to the new Head and chooses someone to replace him.
