In South Park, Chef's Luv Shack is Chef's own game show that airs on local cable access. The show was to feature swimsuit models competing to win a weekend with the love master himself. Unfortunately, the swimsuit models were not booked in time so the talent coordinator booked local residents Cartman, Kyle, Stan, and Kenny instead. As one of the kids you will go head-to-head in a number of events in an attempt to win a whole $12!
Every game opens with trivia. The questions are general trivia, not South Park trivia. There are three categories with one question per category. Each question is a multiple-choice question with four possible answers. Players buzz in to guess, with a correct answer resulting in points and an incorrect answer resulting in a loss of points. After buzzing in players have the option to "Shaft" a player rather than answering the question. This means that the player who buzzed in selects another player to answer the question. If the selected player answers correctly then that player earns double points but if they are incorrect they lose double points.
Occasionally when a category is selected a Special Situation will be uncovered. Special Situations can simply be questions related to the category or The Wheel of Fortuitousness. Spinning the wheel can result in either a pressure round, a gameplay round, or nothing at all. Pressure rounds last 20 seconds and feature ten true or false questions. Double Down can occur during pressure rounds as well. That simply means that you will either win double points or lose double points. Gameplay rounds lead to one of a number of mini-games.
The mini-games included are: Asses in Space, Avalanche, Beefcake, Bees at the Picnic, Bad Kitty, Chicken Lover, Eat This, Frog Toss, Parachute, Pizza Patrol, Rodeo, Scuzzlebutt, Soda Shake, Snow Forts, Go Karts, Spank the Monkey with Mr. Mackey, Stampede, Tug Oh War, Round Up, and Whack a Zombie. Some games are takeoffs on retro games of the 1980s. For example, Asses in Space is a takeoff on Asteroids except that players shoot Ass-teroids instead of asteroids. Another example is Bad Kitty where players control Kitty who must reach the top of the screen while avoiding Cartman's pot pies not unlike the barrels in Donkey Kong.
After everything is said and done a tally screen will appear. Everyone's scores will be added up and the player with the highest score wins. ~ Jonathan Sutyak, All Game Guide
