Board Game Brunch: Chestburster Beef Stew with Nemesis

Board Game Brunch today featured Nemesis with Chestburster beef stew served in bread bowls.

Board Game Brunch: Chesturster Stew and Nemesis

Nemesis is a recent Kickstart arrival to our home. This is a survival horror board game that plays like a dungeon crawl in space. This was our first full play through of the game. We found that with the high amount of sequence based resolution to actions and events made having the rulebook at the ready is important for your first several games.

We love the theme of the game. The feeling of being trapped on a space ship with alien intruders is well captured. You can feel the story unfold on each of your actions. We will still be telling the story of the breeder intruder of Ben’s captain that shot two full clips of his energy rifle to only have the alien continue to escape death. My scientist rammed her wheel chair into the stubborn alien late in the game as a close combat attack an took it down.

We paired this game with some slow cooker beef stew (it may be the end of May, but we’re in Wisconsin, USA and woke to frost) served in delicious bread bowls. The beef stew is great when you want just something a little different, the seasoning included mustard and brown sugar which provided a nice change from the standard stew we make. The bread bowls were amazing. I found the recipe on one of my favorite bread sites: Sally’s Baking Addiction. The texture soaked up the stew gravy perfectly.
