In the end if you succeeded in the level the other players would get some points. This was the main way to unlock new recipes. You could also get them by finding recipe cards which you could claim every so often. The people you were paired with were random. You had goals that you and the people you were paired up with could complete if you succeed you all got some coins or something like that.
