So, I was sittin' around one day, pondering games, and what a variety of experiences they provide, and how it's so difficult to really communicate the experience that one provides...

... and I was hungry ...

... and I started to try to convey the experience by matching foods to games ...

and, ok, maybe I was just hungry, but it worked!


So, here are some I thought of. Feel free to add your own!

A hearty stew

This is a stew with lots going on it in and good depth, with lots of flavors, including the major flavors of veggie, meat, wood-smokey & full-bodied flavors.

All while you're eating it, you just want to keep getting more & more of the different flavors.

The spices are slightly different every time.

Casserole with a good sharp-cheese topping

It has a simple & comforting & consistent flavor, spiked with the tangy pleasure of frequent sharp cheese bursts.

Seems filling, but once you're done, you could still eat more.

There are quite a few variations to the base to keep it from getting "samey" (salmon, sausage, herring, etc.).

Every once a while you get stung by an ingredient in a spoonful that you don't particularly like, but that just makes the comfort of the base flavor and tang of the cheese even better!

Mofongo

Mofongo is a Puerto Rican food "made from fried green plantains or fried yuca, seasoned with garlic, olive oil and pork cracklings, then mashed".

I recently went to Puerto Rico & San Juan, and saw mofongo everywhere, and really enjoyed the one I had.

It was very good, very tasty & filling.

The well flavored plantains provided a good, tasty, filling base that was accented nicely with a filling of shrimp, chicken, lobster, coffee or building.

It is very good, but, after having many mofongo - very many mofongo - some people wish for other fillings.

Any flavor jellybeans

You never know if you'll get something good or a stinker.

It's a very clever concept... but it's still not fun eating "ear-wax" jellybeans.

A clear broth pasta & 11 bean soup shared with a bunch of other folks

Light, just a little depth, not too filling - but tasty.

For some groups, it's a communal thing, with chatting & sharing of beans; others, it's about the personal experience of the soup.

It's about getting as many beans in each spoonful as you can while still only having 2 kinds. (or 3, if you get a bigger spoon)

Best if you use a Southern accent (Arkansas, I've found) while chatting/playing.

Recipe has lots of variations. Using different spices can make it Italian, French, even Carribean, Asian & even "Western". (and apparently Germans like it with Brandy...).

Good Indian Rogan Gosh (lamb stew)

Good Indian curries are made up of many different & varied spices, but blend together excellently into one experience.

Rogan Gosh itself is meaty, filling and just a little spicy.

Hamburger with lettuce & tomato & ketchup

Classic, simple, with just a few parts.

Filling, but it may still take 1 1/2 or 2 to really fill up.

Really exciting growing up, but now that you've discovered other foods, not as interesting.

Can be eaten as a hamburger... but most everyone says it's really meant to be eaten with cheese on top.

Lots of variations!

Very annoying when no matter how much you try, you can't get the roll you want!

A bunch of Jolly Rogers

Clear, shiny candy.

Yes, it's candy, it's not going to satisfy you - but it's not sickly sweet, it's more tangy.

It's all about knowing when to quit: too many and your tummy will get ... ooggie, not enough and you'll be wanting more. How well you balance this determines how well you do - but in the end, it's still a treat!

Its excessive indulgence makes it a bit creepy.

Sandwich with many unusual fixings, like cranberry chutney & blue cheese & roasted red peppers

Good for lunch, not enough for a dinner.

The different unusual fixings take a bit to get used to, but once you do, it provides an excellent experience.

Sometimes one fixing overshadows another - but that's ok, each fixin' is good and you know the next one will have a different standout fixing.

Salad with good extras, like fruit slices, salmon, candied nuts, dried fruit and sharp cheese

Each bite is light, but it's surprising how each one adds up & fills you up.

You try to perfect each bite, with a perfect balance of extras, but one bite has too much fruit, then the protein gets out of control, then there's an outbreak of sharp cheese, and you keep trying to perfect each bite but they seem to be getting more & more out of control, until either you get it just right & have the perfect bite or it all comes tumbling down - which is actually ok, since, in the end, you've still had an excellent salad.

Good Dim Sum where they never seem to bring out enough servings for everyone and everyone's hungry!

Lots of variety! Each item has its own flavor but is also composed of multiple interesting flavors.

Every meal is very different!

Lots of competition for each serving, including alliances, trickery, bribery, whining, bullying, biding time, edicts, lucre, cards (credit/challenge), etc.

A bit chaotic, never really know how long it'll take, but fun.

First person to 5 servings is full & wins.

Fruity, tropical, strong mixed drink

Makes you silly & laugh.

Makes you ... exagerate a little... then forget... and, eventually give up all decorum and lie left & right!

Makes you a little distrustful of what other people are telling you.

Makes you more willing to challenge them about it, which is just fine, because it's all done in good fun!

Spicy, with a little pleasant pain.

A good, fun experience, but not really filling.

And some Jello for blown morale checks.

Ok, I have to add one even though pdahl already kind of used the same idea I had.

Spicy Fajitas with Hot Habanero Sauce on it!

The best flavor you've ever tasted and almost more heat than you can handle. To keep your mouth from disintegrating you have to just keep eating another bite.

You sweat profusely and your heart is pounding but your are loving every single bite!

And later on, there's the heartburn and acid you have to deal with. Not to mention the bad gas...

But for some reason, you go back and order it again the next time!

Spicy Pub-Style Nachos

The jalepenos are hot and spicy like fireballs! Goes great with beer. When it arrive at the table, you can't stop staring at the ENORMOUS mountain of goodness. But sadly, by the time you finish all the cheese, they are just plain "roll&move" nacho-chips.

But hey, it was a great starter! and if anyone were to ever put a plate of nachos on the table again, you'd probably join in, simply because it's a simple snack, and always reminds you of the nostalgia of seeing it for the first time, all over again, in all it's 3D glory!

Oh, and depending where you go, prices can range from average (for OOP) or ludicrously over priced.

Pho Soup

A jumble of flat rice noodles, thin cuts of beef and herbs floating in a bowl of tasty, seasoned clear broth.

It's got a medium-light taste that's more filling than it appears, but still, for me it's just a light lunch (although I hear that's different for others)

It can be spicy or not, depending on the eater, but if it is spicy, it's a spicy that builds as you eat more & more.

Thankfully, no stones included!
(although, actually, disks of cut green onions frequently are...)

A banquet at the Japanese Royal palace.

It's nearly impossible to pick up. (it helps if you hold the hashi like this. You are awed by the thousands of years of history surrounding you, and realize you are completely underdressed and out classed. You probably always will be no matter how often you return.

You manage to clumsily scoop some of the perfectly prepared dishes into your mouth using your fingers. You have no idea when the banquet will end , but your gracious host escorts you out, stumbling because of how full you are. You realize there is no better food in the world.

Mongolian Barbeque

It's lots of fun filling your bowl with different veggies, meats, noodles & sauces, figuring out combinations and seeing what works.

Then it's kind of scary giving it to the cook. The cook takes it & puts it on the griddle - puts it to the test - cooks it up, and when everything's done, hands you back the result.

Your first couple of times... sometimes it works, sometimes it even works well, but sometimes it just falls apart. It's fun, but tinged with a little dissapointment when it doesn't work.
Then you learn some fundamentals, and your combinations rarely fall apart, and you can start to intentionally adjust it and make some really good bowls, and comparing them with other people's creations, and it's fun and satisfying!
