I love that even final weird twist of the "Bonus Ingredients" which is based on the ingredients showing on all of the recepies the player had created that match the random list of 4 ingredients...so it's based on those normally meaningless/unused ingredients on the bottom half of the player's created recipes!
I don't think it's you sucking at all. The AI is really good. I win probably 1 or 2 games in 5! The AI doesn't seem to make a wasted play.

I think, way back, when I read, "'The Jam' is a popular board game for children and adults.", I almost assumed it would be a bit on the fluffy side as we wouldn't want to make it too tough for the kids...but clearly this game says, "Kid or not, get ready for some intense stuff!"

My only minor whine at this point, why not make it more clear which of the AI's completed recipes are already a parts of bonus sets (as they do for you the human player)?

I am really enjoying The Jam. Thanks for the recommendation.

Any idea whether the developer plans to update the game with game saves and the promised multiplayer?

I certainly hope so, but I'm not necessarily counting on it.
