Pizza Theory, by Gryphon Games, offers a new way to play with your food. A thick, juicy pizza is hot out of the oven, but there are no toppings — and what good is a pizza without toppings? This is where you come in: be the first to get all of your toppings on the pizza and you’ll be the master chef.

The game rules are very simple. On each round, players place a topping of their own color anywhere on the pizza that is not adjacent to other toppings of their color. They then secretly choose a location near them (numbered 1 through 6) on which they will slice the pizza. Sticks that represent the slices are then placed on the board and each individual section may gain or lose some toppings, depending on which color dominates that section.

Pizza Theory takes the usual battle over pizza toppings to a whole new level. It is quick and easy to learn, yet requires strategic thought and planning. Without exception, it left us hungry for a second helping — can you play it just once?

Now you can win a brand new copy of Pizza Theory to try for yourself! Use the form below to enter.
