Board Game Brunch: Floriferous and Sweet

April showers brought May flowers to us. Enjoy a flowery game of Floriferous and some sweet cupcakes decorated like flowers.

The Game…Floriferous

Floriferous by Pencil First Games has you walking through your garden, collecting flowers for your arrangements. The game says it is a relaxing game, and it does feel like a nice relaxing set collection game.

Even is another player takes a card you want, there are still at least 2 other good options to choose from. Our game was close, with scores of 25 (Consey) to 31 (Suzanne). I envision Floriferous being pulled out as a nice filler game on game days or when we are playing with less competitive gamers.

The Food…Cupcake Flowers

Brunch consisted of delicious coffee and cupcakes. Fun, sugary, giant cupcakes decorated like flowers. Nice and relaxing brunch.

And Beyond…

Board Game Brunch: Sharing Donuts with Iron Man

What better way to spend Sunday morning than with sharing a Randy’s donut and coffee with Iron Man? No Randy’s Donuts here in Madison, but we enjoyed some delicious donuts from Greenbush Bakery. After fueling up, we went and had Iron Man and Hulk battle Ultron in Marvel Champions.

The Game…Marvel Champions

Marvel Champions, by Fantasy Flight Games, is a cooperative card game where each player is a Marvel superhero, working to defeat a villain. This is a great game where you are immersed in the role you choose and each player deck is built to maximize the hero’s strengths. I played as Hulk and had fun smashing the villain each round. Consey played as Iron Man and spent the early part of the game building his tech up.

Our game seemed to be going pretty well and we felt as if we were gaining ground, until Hulk died. Once that happened, it was up to Iron Man to finish off Ultron. Unfortunately, the suit hadn’t been fully built up before Hulk died, which gave him an uphill battle. He fought valiantly, but ultimately Ultron got away.

The Food…Donuts and Coffee

Brunch consisted of delicious coffee and donuts. The best donut place around here is Greenbush Bakery. We picked up some great donuts and enjoyed our Iron Man inspired breakfast.

Board Game Brunch: Exploring Alien Frontiers

My favorite board game theme is Space. Because of this we have a plethora of space themed games. One of these games that we enjoy is Alien Frontiers by Starling Games. We enjoyed playing it this week and paring it was a simple space themed breakfast.

The Game…Alien Frontiers

Alien Frontiers, by Starling Games, is a resource management game where you are working to develop an alien planet. Dice are used as ships and the randomness of your roles each turn as some unpredictability to the game.

Our 2-player game was a nice back and forth on the scoring track until Conesy pulled out ahead and placed his last colony, while I just couldn’t get my last couple out. There are was to mitigate poor dice rolls, but I just did not get the synergy going as well as he did. Even when you lose, it’s still a good game that we can’t help but enjoy

The Food…Breakfast Crescent Moons and Spaceship Fruit Kabobs

Brunch consisted off a loose interpretation of the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese breakfast sandwiches and fruit rockets made out of strawberries and cantaloupe with fruit dip vapor trails.

And Beyond…
