Cavern Tavern is a worker (dice) placement competitive board game for 1-6 players. The players work in a Tavern serving drinks, working in the kitchen, doing chores and on top of that trying to maintain good relations with the barkeep which is a very nasty and greedy dwarf.
Your mission is to be the best employee Nasty the Dwarf has ever had. Why? Because Cavern Tavern is the best place to meet heroes of the Northlands, hear stories of epic adventures and when the time is right, go on quests that can shape the world. But before you go adventuring, you need to keep your job at all costs.
And your job is to serve the most drinks, spend time in the kitchen and maintain the Tavern in top shape and try not to step on Nasty’s toes. You think that’s simple? Well your opponents want the same and they’ll backstab you, rat on you to Nasty, steal from you and pretty much make your shift at the tavern miserable.
Through clever usage of the dice and items picked up on tables left by the patrons, blocking the opponents and having good relations with Nasty, you can rise at the top and live to work another day at the Cavern Tavern.
