Reading Rulebooks is a podcast dedicated to reading through rulebooks and teaching games! In this podcast I directly read the rulebook as well as discuss the game and try to clear up potential areas of confusion.
Check out the Game section of MCG for more episodes of the Reading Rulebooks Podcast or check out the MCG YouTube Channel for Videos!
This week we are going to cover the rules for Food Chain Magnate. Food Chain Magnate is a game designed by Joroen Doumen and Joris Wiersinga. It is illustrated by Iris de Haan and Ynze Moedt. The game is published by Splotter Spellen. Expansions include Food Chain Magnate: The Ketchup Mechanism & Other Ideas (2019).
