How to play Canteen
Canteen is a shop simulation game focused on selling items, buying stock and managing profits. You have 30 days to make as much money as you can selling items to campers. Discover the strategy of selling different items on different days. Like all Accessibyte Arcade games, Cateen is super accessible and a ton of fun.
Canteen is a game of resource management and predictive skills. You play as a camper running the canteen shop and the camp wants you to make as much money as possible in 30 days (game days, not real days). You must balance purchasing new stock while making sure you turn a profit.
Skilled canteen players strategize when to open the shop, when to buy stock, and when to stop buying stock. Items will sell better depending which shelf you put them on and how the day’s weather or special events make customers feel. You should experiement to find what works best, but one tip is that customers are more likely to buy from higher shelves.
After 30 days, camp ends and you find out how much money you made. Any items you have stay unsold, and you won’t make any money from them. Plan ahead and try to make as much as possible!
How to Play
Once you begin playing, the game will tell you what day it is and what weather or special events the camp has on that day. You choose to “Open Shop,” “Buy Stock,” or “ Check Inventory.”
The “Open Shop” menu asks you to select different items to put on each of your three shelves. Items will sell better depending on what shelf you put them on and depending on how the weather or special events make customers feel. After you’ve stocked and sold your items, the day is done and the next day begins.
As items sell, you earn money. The “Buy Stock” option lets you spend money on new items to sell. Each item sells for a different price and has a different customer demand depending on the day’s weather or special event. After you’ve sold your items, the day is done and the next day begins.
The “Inventory” options lets you check how many of each item you have and how much money you have. This does not use up the player’s turn, or day.
