...aber bitte mit Sahne comes with a deck of wedge-shaped pie slices and is played over five rounds. Each round, the active player (or slicer) deals out a complete pie of 11 slices, then divides the pie into a number of pieces equal to the number of players. He can't rearrange the slices, which come in eight flavors and point values, but he can cut wherever he chooses so long as each offering has at least one slice. Each flavor comes with a different number of slices, and those numbers range from 3-11 (with no flavor having six slices). For those who have already done the counting, you'll realize that the game contains 57 slices, which means that two slices will remain out of the game, foiling those who want to count cards.
In clockwise order, starting from the left of the slicer, each player chooses an offering; she can then eat all of the pieces, save them all, or do some combination of both. Eating slices locks in a certain number of points; saving them lets you work toward a majority holding in whichever flavors you're collecting. After five rounds, whoever holds the majority in a flavor (or is tied for the majority) scores for that flavor. These points are added to those gained by consumption, and whoever scores the most is king of the pie.
