Video: Food for Thought – The Isle of Cats Review

The cat’s out of the bag, this months Food for Thought review is The Isle of Cats from The City of Games. I created a pet-friendly sushi feast along with a few other treats and provide my thoughts on the game.

There’s currently an expansion for The Isle of Cats on Kickstarter, right now! Plus if you can pick up the original if you missed it:

Valentines Day 2021: Say it with dinner and a game

It’s been a slow month here on the content front with both my wife and my birthdays AND Valentine’s crammed into 10 days. Plus I’m still waiting for a few new games to come in. I decided to go all out on some fancy cooking for the Valentine’s long weekend, without limiting myself to one particular theme. But what better way to celebrate that special day with your loved one than dinner and a game. I created these shitposts mementos for the occasion.

Tempurra & Ramen

Tempurra is one of my favorite filler games, and it’s even better after filling up on delicious ramen. It plays a little like Uno, but with adorable art and theme.

Breakfast Focaccia

I’m rather late to the lockdown bread making club, but have been experimenting with focaccia for the last couple weeks. It’s a lovely weekend treat to prepare first thing in the morning and enjoy for brunch after filling the house with those lovely smells. Plus it’s so easy to customize and decorate. I don’t actually own Fog of Love or Love Letter but either would make for a lovely pairing over a slow brunch.

The One Hundred Torii with Nigiri

Finally as an epilogue to my feast for The One Hundred Torii earlier this month, I sourced some sashimi grade seafood (Sockeye salmon, Ahi tuna and scallops) for some nigiri sushi. Was a lovely light meal while settling in for movie night with my wife. See my previous post for a review of the game and the rest of my feast!

What about you? Do you have any cooking or gaming traditions with your partner for Valentine’s Day or do anything special this year?

Feast as you wander
Through the gardens of beauty;
The One Hundred Torii

Grab a cup of tea and a snack as I take you on a walking tour through the garden and review The One Hundred Torii

Admire the garden
In quiet contemplation;
Is it my turn yet?
