You know, why should food blogs be ONLY about food? Today, along with sharing a really cool recipe with y’all, I’m also going to talk about something else that’s really cool – Board Games. #NerdAlert
So, my husband and I have a penchant for board games. We love organizing game nights and truly enjoy a good game of strategy and chance. In fact, we have quite a collection of board games at home. And I’m not talking about Monopoly. No. There are some really amazing board games out there that are mostly mind games and require analytical skills. – The Settlers of Catan (and it’s 10 million variations – my favorite, Seafarers), The Forbidden Desert, Sequence, The Game, Heir of Egypt, D&D, the list goes on……
A couple of weeks ago, I was looking online for a new board game to play and I found, drum-roll…………JUMANJI! The board looked exactly like the one in the movie – really cool, there were danger cards, a decoder, a weapons dice, a really wild-looking rhino, and the reviews were good – overall it looked fun, so I went ahead and bought it. The only thing that I was skeptical about was that it’s the year 2020 and as we all know by now, anything is possible in 2020. I just hoped for us to not get sucked into the game. Ahem.
Turned out, we didn’t. The game, with a little bit of imagination, is quite fun. It’s a 2-4 player game and mimics the movie. I made sure to read the danger cards out loud every single time we got it, you know, for the movie effect. 😀 We actually won quite a few times. I personally did feel that the game could have been designed to extend a little longer – we felt it ended a bit too quickly. Nevertheless, yelling JUMANJI as soon as you reach the game board center is quite thrilling! Oh, and the rhino can be quite the pain.
Anyhoo..more on board games for later, let’s now talk FOOD! Extending on my previous confession of being a major sugar-addict, I’m a huge sucker for all kinds of ice-cream. But when you’re quarantined at home and within 10 feet of your refrigerator (the new bff) that’s filled with tubs of full-fat ice cream – it can prove to be quite dangerous.
