Ever been to a restaurant and can’t decide what to order? What’s for Dinner is a light and fast game for 2–6 players, designed to cleanse the palate, inspire hungry players, and bring friends and family to the table.

How to Play

Each player has 2 Trait cards, which represents the kind of Meal cards you’ll try to order.

When it’s your turn, you roll the Food Die, and you can choose from the Food Pyramid one Meal card that has a symbol matching the die.

If you roll a food group you don’t want, not to worry! You can either pay for a Meal card with money from Wallet cards in your hand, or you can play Wallet cards for effects that might help you satisfy that craving.

When the Meal cards run out, count up the points on all of the Meals you’ve ordered, and score additional points if you managed to fulfill one or both of your Traits. Whoever has the most points wins the game!


What’s for Dinner? is a family-friendly palate-cleanser card game for 2 to 6 players. Come to the table hungry and satisfy your Traits, or you might have to go without!

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Feeding America and House of Bread.

A La Carte Games, LLC is based in Dayton, Ohio, and is committed to making games the whole family can enjoy.
