The Nerdalogues have started a Kickstarter for their second game (after Fisticuffs), Competition Kitchen, a delightful mash-up of cooking competition shows like Iron Chef, and rotating-judge card games like Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity.

In Competition Kitchen, 3-7 players will pick a hand of cards representing a protein, a vegetable and a flavor. One player judges, and will pick a Challenge Card for the competition theme, and a Secret Ingredient card. Players must make their case to the judge, describing their dish using all the ingredients and matching the theme. The judge picks the winner, and the role of judge rotates around the table. The player who wins the most competitions is the victor. Guest contributors for cards include such culinary superstars as Mario Batali, Marc Summers, Graham Elliot, and many more.

The Kickstarter for Competition Kitchen continues through May 12, and is expected to deliver in August 2017.
