No, this isn’t a post about a new recipe, cookbook or restaurant. There is a new trivia type game out there called Dish It Out Foodie. The packaging is pure genius! The game comes in a pizza box and the game board is in vivid color with great food related artwork. The couple who developed, designed and produced this game, Celeste and Dik D’Anjolell, told me that the entire process was truly a labor of love that took 18 months to complete. They have produced the entire game from soup to nuts. Incorporated in the game board of paintings that Celeste herself painted. The game comes with over 900 questions and answers relating to everything and anything from the world of food. And if you ever get tired of those there are more available on their website dishitoutfoodie.com where you can also order the game. After playing the game with a fellow foodie we both found the game to be so much fun that we laughed till we were silly. I think you will find the game to be challenging, amusing and even perhaps a bit educational.
Inside the 9-inch pizza box you will find:
9″ quad-fold Game Board
2 boxes of Q&A cards
6 ICE Pawns & 1 die in a Peanut Bag
36 ICE Chips in a Popcorn Bag
Pot Luck & Foodie Finish Cards in a Cookie Bag
Menu of Rules
All printed in the USA
To play the game:
2-6 players or teams go around the board earning ICE chips by answering questions from 6 categories: World of Fares, Let It Pour, Ways & Means, Food For Thought, Melange and Happy Endings. The first player to get 6 different colored ICE chips enters the Dish It Out Foodie circle to answer a Foodie Finish question to win. TREAT STREET, a yellow causeway, loops around the board for a chance to move quickly to a category that’s needed. Other stops along the way are POT LUCK, SOUR TURN, ROTTEN APPLE, FISH ROLL and TREAT YOURSELF.
If you are looking for something different as a Chanukah of Christmas gift for your favorite food lover or aspiring chef the is the perfect gift!! Dik and Celeste have cooked up a fabulous new way for us to play with our food so be sure to also treat yourself to a taste.
