Creating the Perfect Board Game Ambiance

Vicky's Nerdy N Dirty Blog

Happy Wednesday everyone! 


It's been a long week already, BJ and I just made it back from Las Vegas for the Dice Tower West Con and as much fun as it was, I am beat! Gaming really takes a lot out of ya! 

(PS: Expect a blog on all our shenanigans later this week)


That being said, I want to go back and talk about the latest episode of BJ Shea's Board Game Alliance!  


One of the things we talked about was how to make the perfect ambiance for board gaming. I mean, yeah a snack tray and games are always a great way to spend an evening, but we talked about spicing it up! 



This is a given. Who doesn't love the perfect soundtrack to anything they are doing? Playing a medieval game? Boom: Lord of The Rings Soundtrack! Playing something on the open seas? Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack! 



Or check out a game that already comes with their own music like the games from Flying Frog Productions!

Whether it's some tasty creative desserts or a full meal centered around a game, you can't go wrong! It's a simple and tasty way to get into the game more!

It's a double dose of delicious today with specials! Over at Mox Bellevue this weekend we have a lamb loin, pan seared in garlic oil, with sauteed kale and rainbow carrots. That delightfully pan seared lamb loin is then finished with a red wine and balsamic reduction and a rosemary sauce. With all of those rich flavors, you'll need something a bit bold to pair. A Forbidden Red from Patterson will do the trick. A blend of Rhone Varietals, Forbidden Red, opens with a lush nose of blackberries, dark cherries and plums, with hints of rosemary, strawberries and vanilla.

Doesn't dressing up make everything better?
