The Apprentice: Los Angeles recreates the original US version of the TV series, starring businessman Donald Trump's attempt to find a new business star. Former contestants and key figures from the show also feature. You face a series of challenges, beginning with a sushi bar and moving onto a boutique.
On each sub-level you must put people's orders together by clicking on icons in the correct order (rice, fish and extras such as tea and umbrellas in the sushi bar, for example). You will usually be managing multiple deals at once, so prioritize those where the customer has been waiting for longest, or which are part of a big order. Some tasks take time to complete (boutique assistants must find dresses, beach balls must be blown up by your surf shop's assistant, for example), so factor this into your thinking. Normal and Expert goals are provided - reach the normal goal regularly to survive.
If your overall performance on a task isn't adequate, you will be dragged to the boardroom, along with 2 other colleagues of your choice. Avoiding elimination then comes down to a Snap game - turn over cards representing attributes such as leadership and responsibility, remember where they are, and find matches. Each Expert goal you reached during the main game will provide a hint card. The player with the lowest score at the end of this will be fired - and will usually complain about it.
