Board Game Brunch: Keeping it Together at the Outer Rim

For Board Game Brunch this week, we travel to the Outer Rim. Hoping from planet to planet, we try desperately to keep our ships and food from falling apart while playing Star Wars: Outer Rim and eating Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Brunch Bread

Board Game Brunch: A Spanish Alhambra Experience

Simple can equal magnificent. We see that this weekend in our Board Game Brunch pairing. We paired a Spanish Tortilla with the game Alhambra.

Board Game Brunch: Celebrating the Monarch’s Journey

Board Game Brunch this week we got ready for the upcoming Monarch migration. Monarch butterflies have been gracing our garden in Wisconsin and are simply stunning. We decided to pair Mariposas with some butterfly waffles to celebrate their appearance.

Board Game Brunch: Digging in the Trash

Fine dining the masked bandit way. This week we enjoyed Trash Can Nachos and played Trash Pandas.

The Game…Trash Pandas

Trash Pandas, by Gamewright Games is a push your luck and set collection game. You did through the trash can to find cards that assist you will stashing away more cards of each set than your opponent. To take actions on your turn, you roll a die. You can roll as many times as you like to try and acquire multiple actions. If you push your luck too far and roll the same action twice, you bust and don’t get to take any of the actions!

Since end game is triggered when the trash can (draw stack) is empty, Trash Pandas takes about 20 minutes rather you have 2, 3, or 4 players. In our game today, Conesy and I had fun stealing each others cards, forcing additional roles and trying to stash cards as quickly as we could. In the end, Conesy emerged the victor with a full stomach and 23 points to my 20.

The Food…Trash Can Nachos

The food inspired by a recipe from Guy Fieri I found online. In empty and clean bean cans, I layered our favorite nacho ingredients: chips, shredded chicken, black beans, tomatoes, onions, and jalapenos. Topped everything off with homemade salsa, sour cream, and cilantro. While it didn’t dump out of the can in a nice column (but really, when would trash do that?), it was a fun twist on eating our nacho brunch.

And Beyond…

Board Game Brunch: Back and Saving Our Oceans

After a short hiatus, Board Game Brunch is back. This week we’re exploring one of our GenCon2022 impulse buys. Conesy and I try to control the oil spill, rescue marine animals, and enjoy some ocean inspired treats.

The Game…The Spill

The Spill, By Smirk and Laughter has you cooperatively trying to contain an oil spill, remove oil from the ocean, and rescue marine animals.

Reminiscent of Pandemic by ZMan Games, The Spill, has each player performing the role of a different specialist with unique abilities to aide in the ultimate goal. Even with a limited amount of action points per turn, the game can lull you into a false sense of competency, until the oil spill starts spiraling out of control. This is aided by the randomness of the dice drop before each turn.

This game was an impulse buy at GenGon 2022 for us. We enjoy playing cooperative games as a couple and and this one caught our eye with the oil rig dice tower and colorful marine animals. Initially, I was not expecting much from it, but a fun, medium weight game to pull out occasionally. Well, I have now played it 5 times in just under 2 weeks. I’ve only won twice, but the losses have not kept me from wanting to try again. Next game I plan to crank up the win conditions to the hard level.

The Food…Ocean Inspired Treats

Brunch consisted of various snack like foods with inspiration from multiple websites. We had banana dolphins playing in a sea of blue gelatin. An orang octopus surrounded by krispy treat star fish covered in oil (chocolate0 and sand (crushed graham crackers). We also enjoyed some fish swimming near the beach (pudding with gummy fish). And of course, a cup of oil (coffee) to wash it all down!
