NUMBER OF PLAYERS: 3 to 8 Players

MATERIALS: A rulebook, 98 card, 2 dice, 16 menus, a sand timer, 28 tokens, and a way to keep score.

TYPE OF GAME: Horror Themed Card Game



Lord of the Fries is a Zombie themed card game for 3 to 8 players. The goal of the game is to earn the most points by the end of the game. This is done by making orders from a menu using cards from your hands.


Players should first determine the menu and number of rounds they wish to play. 4 rounds are typical, but a game can be longer or shorter. The menu will tell you what cards to use to build the deck according to the number of players.

Once the deck is built a random dealer will shuffle and deal out all the cards to players. Some players may have extra cards; this is okay.


The game is started by the dealer, who may call or roll for the first order.

If calling, they may choose any item from the standard menu (this does not include additional items on some menus). Players who cannot make the order will pass to the left.

If rolling they will roll the dice, and this will determine the item made. The green dice is for the menu section and the black is for the item in that section. If rolling, when players cannot make the order, they pass to the player who rolled the dice.

Once an order has been called, starting with the player to the left of the dealer, players will try to make the order. If they cannot they pass their card to the respective person according to ho the order as made and pass their turn. If the order goes around completely without being made, starting with the person left of the dealer, they may make the order with one less item. This continues until someone makes the item or the order can be made with zero items, in which case the order is dropped, and no one scores for it.

When a player completes an order, they play out the needed cards in front of them so all players can see then stack them into a score pile for later.

The player who makes the order becomes the leader and now has the choice to roll or call an order as above. Starting with the second order, the sand timer may be used if all players agree.

Once a player plays or passes the final card from their hand the round immediately ends. All players total their scores by adding all completed orders (aka cards staked in front of them for scoring) and subtracting any cards remaining in their hands. Scores are kept cumulatively over several rounds.


The game ends after 4 rounds (or the number the players determined at the start of the game) are completed. The player with the highest score wins the game.
