Each week, I'll be bringing you the best bits here on the blog and letting you shop the podcast! Today, we're recapping Bush's Board Game Thing Episode 18 that talks all things food from bird feed to sushi!

    Join head chef Andy, sous chef Jess and sommelier Brian in episode 18. This week, the team will be delving into the delicious topic of food-themed games. This could be human or animal food, Wingspan is all about feeding your birds remember! And now we invite you to relax, let us pull up a chair as Board Game Thing proudly presents, your dinner!

    Go Nuts for Donuts!

    Go Nuts for Donuts is a fast-paced card game for the whole family with just a sprinkle of strategy (and sugar.)

    This game of Donuts is all about outsmarting your opponents. In your quest for freshly baked donuts, your aim is to collect as many points as possible. Beware though, if another player also goes after that pink jammie, then nobody gets the baked good or the points.

    Each player has a number card for each donut that is out. Players all pick a donut they want by placing one of their number cards face down on the table. Players simultaneously reveal their number. Will you get the treat or will you be kicked to the bakery curb?

    Throw Throw Burrito

    Brought to you by the creators of Exploding Kittens, Throw Throw Burrito is a game designed to bring fun-filled chaos to your dinner party! This is a game that relies upon quick thinking and even quicker movement, swapping cards with your opponents and trying to be the first to grab a foam burrito to hurl at your friends and family.

    Get ready for a Burrito Brawl. Prepare yourself for a Burrito War. Brace yourself for the ultimate Burrito Duel!

    This crazy dodgeball style card game is quick and easy to learn. The perfect way to have a food fight, without getting too messy.

    Don't forget to check out the Extreme Outdoor edition. Burritos aren't your thing? Throw Throw Avacado is coming soon!

    Sushi Go Party!

    Perhaps you’ve heard of Sushi Go by Phil Walker-Harding, but have you heard of Sushi Go Party?

    Whilst in a sushi restaurant, you'll have to grab dishes flying past you on a conveyor belt. Get ready to keep your eyes on the Maki Rolls as the Sashimi go past.

    Unlike Sushi Go's 8 dishes, Sushi Go Party has 22 different card dishes for you to grab! This is a full meal service so don't let those bowls of Green Tea Ice Cream get past you.

    Brian's Board Game Fact of the Week

    Time for Brian's Amuse-bouche of the episode. With the episode centred around food, Brian is back with another gem of a fact.

    Centred around gathering birds and thus feeding them, Brian has drawn inspiration from Wingspan. This game hosts all of the birds from around the world, including the European and Oceania expansions, but Brian wants to focus on one bird in particular - the starling. If a North American expansion for Wingspan was to be released and factually correct, you would not be able to find a single natural starling.

    Their appearance in North America is all down to Eugene Schieffelin. An avid Shakespeare fan, Schieffelin was responsible for introducing the European starling to North America. An advocate for introducing Shakespeare's work into American culture in the 1800s, Schieffelin was fascinated by Shakespeare's descriptions of Europeans birds and particularly the starling. This lead to him releasing a flock of starlings in Central Park, thinking that they won't thrive but at least people will be able to admire the birds.

    Cut to 2021, there are over 200 million of the birds roaming the skies and are considered a pest. Starlings officially have the same status as pigeons to a Londoner.

    Competitive Prices in today's 2021 CCG/TCG Market. Great Card Shop option to purchase gaming cards compared to most Card Shops that lack a variety of inventory. Gives players a chance to buy and play these wonderful games. Excellent Customer Service. I'd drive here and visit the store if I didn't live that far.
