It's game night (still). What to eat?
« on: April 13, 2017, 09:38:15 AM »
Here at PPHQ the team brings round a selection of biscuits and sweets.   For drinks we have tea and coffee (not really any coffee)  How about you?

Never eat over the table - ugh! Usually have a coffee whilst playing.

Great chippy too Stewart!

I wonder if a selection of grapes and cut up melon will ever catch on for games night?

I sometimes take grapes but they get put aside in favour of cookies and chocolates

Always strikes me as weird - You spend a couple of hundred quid on figures, terrain, paint etc. You then spend several months painting them up, terraining the bases, and then time is spent devising a scenario and laying out the battlefield. Then you cover the lot with biscuit crumbs, crisp grease, chip grease, sticky coke and so on. Beggars belief, and gets short shrift on my tables.

Have a 6x4 table, 5x3 playing area, plenty of room around the edge for wine and cucumber sandwiches

Tea and coffee, beer (non-drivers only), Port, soft drinks always available.

Usually have no food whatsoever available unless it's over lunchtime when I do pizza and we stop for half an hour.  Might have cake if the missus has been busy over half term or school hols.

I occasionally have a box of chocs that go round and especially if my son is playing, for extra rewards if someone routs, destroys or disperses an enemy unit, or makes a particularly good roll.
