Board Game Brunch this week Suzanne and Ben battling it out for Russia in Dual Powers. To ensure they had sufficient subsistence to start the day, we enjoyed Syrniki topped with caramelized apples.
The Game…Dual Powers
Dual Powers, by Thunderworks Games is a 1-2 player political strategy game. In the game you are battling it out for Russia. Either trying to start or prevent the Russian Civil War. This is done by playing cards, placing units in regions or moving them and progressing time forward.
For today’s game we had a strong battle between my white and Ben’s red teams. Ben’s team ultimately coming out as the victor by moving the victory point tracker to the end in the month of October.
For brunch we tried Syrniki from Cooking the Globe. This was our first experience with the Russian cottage cheese pancakes. They turned out very light and fluffy. We topped them with some caramelized apples. The pancakes were accompanied by some tea with honey. A nice relaxing and indulgent way to begin our Sunday.
Next week we take Board Game Brunch to GenGon and will play Truck Off! Food Truck Frenzy. If you’re at the Con, we’d love to have you join us for the game! If you can’t make GenCon, we’ll be hosting a special Board Game Brunch playing Tiny Towns at Gamehole Con, be sure to sign up for our event or stop by and say Hi!
