Want to learn how to play Barbarous – Tavern of Emyr? You’ve come to the right place! Learn more about how the game and scoring works, as well as additional tips and tricks to help you on your quest.
How to Play
Barbarous – Tavern of Emyr is a GameHouse Premiere exclusive Time Management game. The goal of the game is to serve patrons of your tavern as quickly as possible and earn high scores while completing side and story quests.
- Serve customers by tapping the item shown in the order bubble above their head. This will add the item to your serving tray, or inventory. Then, tap on the customer to bring them their order.
Tip! If you accidentally put the wrong item on your tray or don’t need it anymore, tap the item on your inventory tray to remove it!
- Combine items made of multiple ingredients by tapping the ingredients in the correct order.
- Cook or pour orders which take time to prepare by tapping the station (e.g. keg or fire pit). A meter will appear showing its progress. Tap the item when the needle lands in the green zone to add it to your tray.
Tip! If you don’t pick up items which require cooking or pouring in time, they may burn or overflow – meaning you’ll need to start over again!
- Check out customers by tapping the register – or Pix the mimic treasure chest, in this case!
Scoring and Customer Happiness
Customers give scores based on the level of service you provide. The more hearts a customer has, the happier they are and the bigger tip they’ll leave! If a customer loses all their hearts, they’ll leave without giving a score.
Earn bonus points by serving all the items of an order in a single trip, serving orders quickly, and checking out more than one customer at once!
The various taverns of Barbarous all hide their own version of mice. But since they’re bigger than a mouse, we’ll call them rats! A rat is hidden in every level of the game. Find them all to earn bonus points and a special trophy! For help locating rats, check out the Rat Locations section.
Everyone knows a girl’s room is her sanctuary. Complete bonus story and side objectives while playing levels to earn diamonds and upgrade Gwen’s room!
Additional Tips and Tricks
Still need a few extra hints or pointers? Don’t worry – we’ll cast some extra support your way with these useful buffs:
- Keep ‘em Happy – Happy customers give big tips, so don’t leave anyone waiting around too long!
- Unleash the Ultimate Combo! – Serve customers back-to-back to earn additional score bonuses. Plus, check out multiple customers at the register at once to obtain even bigger score boosts!
- Hygiene is Important – Let’s be honest, personal hygiene is the mark of a true hero. But for customers of your tavern, clean tables mean a place they can sit and enjoy a meal. Keep tables clean to earn bonus points and keep the customers coming!
- Rodents of Unusual Size – We think they exist! In fact, a rat is hidden in every level of the game and will pop up from time to time. Find them to earn bonus points!
- Assist the NPCs – Complete level story and side quests to earn diamonds to spend on Gwen’s room!
