Board Beer Geek 2, What’s that?

The most common question I get when handing out flyers or telling people I’m doing this event is… you guessed it! “Board Beer Geek, What’s that?” Quickly followed by “Is that some nerd thing?”, “Why are you in my house?” and “I’m calling the police” The last one isn’t really a question, but I wanted to take some time outside of your house to tell you guys about this sweet event that Kip, Bo and I are putting on!


It’s happening!!!!

Board Beer Geek is about two things. Games and Craft Beer. Last time we had some of our favorite games for people to play. Settlers of Catan, 7 Wonders, King of tokyo, and a couple more. This time we have games brought to us and you by AEG, Playroom Entertainment, and The Gamesmith!


Playroom Entertainment is bringing us Unspeakable Words, Geek Out, and Killer Bunnies! Here’s a little bit about the games you’ll be playing…

Unspeakable words is a sweet Cthulu themed spelling card game. Imagine words with friends with a sanity check each round. You can find a breakdown of the rules on their website here!

Killer Bunnies is a game where you play as vicious bunnies on the mean streets of bunnyville. The point of the game is to have your bunny gang take out all of the opposing bunny gangs in brutal bunny on bunny combat! You can check out the full rules here.

Geek Out is the nerdiest trivia game you’ll ever play. Where only the truly nerdy “win” by trying to convince everyone else that the Flash is faster than Superman when everyone knows he’s not… Check out the rules here if you really want to, but we all know Superman is faster.

We will have copies of these games on hand for the raffle, in exchange for BBG coins, and just to play in general!

Our next feature game company is AEG. They are kind of a big deal. I will be bringing you more info on the games they will have for us tomorrow. As well as some info on the beer and a couple other special guests we will be featuring later this week!

What the Food?!

Peter Setting Up

Peter Setting Up

We have one new game that we’re adding to the line-up and it’s both fun and made by a local, Peter Vaughan.  This fast paced card game takes between 25-45 minutes to play and is primarily card based.  Players take on the personas of school kids in a massive food fights throwing everything from rotten spaghetti & meatballs slathered in chocolate syrup to peanut butter covered raw eggs.  Successfully pelting your competition with food slaps them with humiliation points and with 10 of those points you lose the game.  Beware, your opponents can duck, dodge, and reflect your attacks, and with random events that completely change up gameplay, the tides of food battle can turn at any minute.

Kip and the PrincipalI had the pleasure of meeting Peter last night and walking through the game mechanics and I’m happy to say it’s fun, easy to pick up, and has a ton of variability – perfect for beginners and advanced players.  The character design is fantastic something both Peter and Character Designer (Nickelodeon/Disney) Sebastian Duclos should be very proud of.

Squirmy BeastPeter’s Company, Squirmy Beast, successfully Kickstarted What the Food in June of 2013 and it’s now available at game shops and online.  Peter is also a regular author on The League of Game Makers, a blog dedicated to design, artistry, and creation of new tabletop/card games.  If you’re in the process of designing your own game, make sure to check it out.

Peter won’t be joining us in person at the event, but he’s given us one of his games along with exclusive promo cards and an expansion pack, which we’ll be giving away to a lucky winner during the event.  But remember, the only way you can win the game is by coming to the event so get your tickets now!
