Each round, players simultaneously select, then reveal which venue they will park at placing their food trucks next to that venue. A die is then rolled at each venue to determine how many people actually showed up at each venue. Each player then simultaneously selects which special action(s) they choose to execute this round. Starting with the first player token, players play and execute one action in a clockwise manor until all actions have been played and executed. After players are done executing actions, profits are split between each truck at the venue.
