The town of Scoville enjoys it hot! Very hot! That means they love their peppers – but they're too busy eating them to grow them themselves. That's where you step in.
You've been hired by the town of Scoville to fulfill their need for heat. Your role as an employee of the town is to crossbreed peppers to create the hottest new breeds. You'll have to handle the auctioning, planting, and harvesting of peppers, then you'll be able to help the town by fulfilling their orders and creating new pepper breeds. Help make Scoville a booming success! Time to get planting!
A round of Scoville is comprised of a blind auction, which determines player order, a planting phase, a harvesting phase, and a fulfillment phase. Each round, players plant peppers in the fields. Throughout the game, the opportunities for crossbreeding increase as more peppers are planted. When harvesting, the players move their pawn through the fields, and whenever they move between two planted fields, they harvest peppers. For example, if they harvest between fields of red and yellow peppers, they crossbreed those and harvest an orange pepper. Harvested peppers are then used to fulfill the town's peppery needs!
