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
The Game…Star Wars: Outer Rim
Star Wars: Outer Rim (Outer Rim) is a Space Exploration game by Fantasy Flight Games. In Outer Rim, you are an outlaw traveling through space In your travels you’ll hire Star Wars Characters to join your crew, upgrade your ship, deliver cargo, and complete jobs and bounties. You do all this while fending off attacks from various groups and other players and making alliances. You win the game by becoming the most famous outlaw in the Outer Rim.
In today’s game we played 2-player. Conesy played very thematic with Hans Solo attempting (and succeeding at) a Kessel run. I did not play thematic with Boba Fett and that caused me to struggle to acquire fame. Leading to Conesy coming out with the win in this game.
After not having played this game for a year, I was reminded why I am so anxious to get my hands on a copy of the expansion. I enjoy the game mechanics and theme, but after a couple plays, you start feeling like you’re have seen everything and the variety can feel lacking. At the same time, I’ve only played this at 2-player. I am curious to try and play at a higher player count and see if my thoughts change.
For brunch food, I tried my had at Bundt Pan Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Bread. The recipe itself is simple and the flavors are delicious. I don’t know if it’s my particular Bundt pan, but I always have difficulty getting food out of the pan. Unfortunately, this was no different.
As you can see, it came out in pieces, but it tasted delicious. My family ate it up!
