Today’s board game brunch featured a two-player game of Village (base game only) paired with homemade biscuits and gravy.
Village is a 20-year old, worker placement game that continues to see the table. Each player is responsible for growing the family through multiple generations. There are multiple paths for points, and to have the most famous and prosperous family, you best pay attention to them all.
The base game plays 2-4 players, scaling excellently to each player count. Total play time is just under an hour for today’s two player game. Even with four players, this does not take much longer. Of course, my husband eeked out a win going heaving on the religious points.
Brunch was biscuits and gravy, a delicious treat for us. Today we tried Chef John’s Buttermilk Biscuits, which had lovely flaky layers. the biscuits were topped with Ben’s sausage gravy: cooked pork sausage simmered in made from scratch gravy (flour, onion, milk, garlic, black pepper, and butter).
Village with Biscuits and Gravy was a great way to start our Sunday. If you have any suggestions for food and game pairings you’d like to see, let me know via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Enjoy your Sunday

It’s the time of the year to be festive. With many of us, we are looking at our favorite online retailers this year to purchase and possibly ship gifts to our friends and loved ones. With so many games out there, WiscoDice is here to provide some guidance as to what to buy your board gaming friends.
It’s worth noting that we have not played any of these titles. These are games that we are excited about ourselves. After reading reviews, watching game play, and doing enough research to make ourselves a little jolly, this is the list that we settled on.
For this list, we have looked at the top games that have either just released or are expected to release before the Christmas (December 25th) holiday. The list will feature both stand alone board games as well as expansions to popular games. Gamers can be very difficult to buy for. Anything that has just released going into the holiday season is something your gamer just might not have in their collections yet!
I hope you are excited for our holiday board game top 10 shopping list!!!
