### Description

We investigate to which extent we can exploit the dependence of the order of the chiral transition on the number of light degenerate flavors $N_\text{f}$, re-interpreted as continuous parameter in the path integral formulation, as a means to perform a controlled chiral extrapolation and deduce the order of the transition for the case $N_\text{f}=2$, which is still under debate.
