Cafe World Chefs Circle

By | July 30, 2011

Do you notice any new feature in cafe world ? look on your gift box icon and try to hover it, you will see a new tooltip social : chefs circle, gifts

cafe-world-chefs-circle
however when you click it there’s no chef’s circle option, it changed into social with one of your neighbor’s photo

cafe world social icon
cafe-world-social

and when i tried to find out what is chefs circle by clicking social button, it only pop to special delivery box for friends ??

i look on the forum, and here’s what Pinky Chefcadero the Community Manager said about Chef Circle :
Hiya Chefs! We’re releasing a new feature called Chef Circle in the coming weeks. We are hoping it will be super helpful to everyone who loves to play Café World. It’s going to give you a way to interact with more people who are as interested in playing Café World as you are!

Right now, you will see an icon in the corner that says “Chef’s Circle.” It may even ask you to send Special Deliveries. Well, guess what, this isn’t what Chef Circle will do when we actually mean to release it and this is a bug. Oops! You aren’t supposed to see that icon, so let’s just say this is a “Sneak Peak.”

I hope this isn’t too confusing!

Stay tuned!

update : there’s already chefs circle guide from zynga blog :)

How Chefs Circle Works!
The Chefs Circle feature will pick a quest to start working on together.
You will see your progress and the team’s progress.

The first person to finish the quest will receive the crown! (stars around your picture) After the team finishes, everyone receives the prize shown and you will see an announcement. Then you will move onto the next quest.

Help!
To help your circle, choose “Help” above their image to send them something they need for that quest. This item is a random item they need for that quest. If they have finished that quest, they will receive a special delivery.

You may help each player once a day.

If the players in the Chefs Circle don’t play for (5 days), they will have “zzz” under their image. You may click the “Wake up!” button to send an email to get them back in the game. (You will not see their email. The email will be sent through the game. Email addresses are not visible to other players through Chefs Circle.)

Chat!
You can chat with your Chefs Circle in the Chefs Circle control panel. Ask for help, share tips or completion!

Click in the lower part of the chat window to send a message to your Chefs Circle.

Will any of my private information be shared to non-neighbors ?
The Chefs Circle feature shows only your first name and your profile picture. Your personal information will not be available to other players within Chefs Circle, unless you choose to add them as a Facebook Friend. When you are only on a team in Chefs Circle, your team members will have a round frame around their profile picture, denoting they are only in your Chefs Circle, not real friends. You can visit their café, but you cannot send them feeds or requests unless you choose to add them as a friend.

What happens if I have already completed the Chefs Circle goal ?
It is possible that you may have already completed the chosen quest previously. If that’s the case, you will be awarded a crown for completing the quest first. At this point, you can help your crew finish the quest. Once everyone has completed the quest, everyone will receive a reward.

What happens when I have inactive Chefs Circle members ?
If one of your Chefs Circle members falls asleep, you will see ZZZ’s by their image. You can then wake them up, but if that player is inactive for an extended period of time, they will be removed from your Chefs Circle and another member will be automatically added to your Circle.

if someone that can access chefs circle would like to friend you, you will see this pop up :

    so what if someone hit decline to the chefs circle but now wants to be do it? how do you get the option again?

    • admin

      wait until this full released to everyone, or you can ask your friends who already got the chefs circle to invite you again and don’t decline it this time :P

  • jen

    how do i get chef circle

  • lisa

    I hit decline by mistake and asked a friend to invite me again but she cant find the feature to invite friends? So i still cant get it :(

  • Ves

    How do we ask the friends who have it, and how they can invite us?

  • Heather

    I don’t think you can invite friends. Amelia comes to your cafe with the chef’s circle bubble above her head and you click on that. If she’s not coming, maybe look in your inventory and see if you can find that chalk board.

    What I want to know is if your chef’s circle is lame and half of them are inactive and none of them help you how do you get new ones?
