Eat the cards, eat the pieces, order more because they're so dang tasty!
I wonder what edible games would do to the industry? Maybe there wouldn't be such a market for it, but then weirder things have happened.

I've seen edible Chess sets. You eat what you capture. But that's about all I've seen. What kind of chaos do you think could be invoked with edible games?

Any game is edible. It just depends on your level of commitment.

I used to play one when I was really little called Dont Eat Pete, looks like its a PnP. Man I loved that game (not really a game per se, but I got to eat candy)

The replayability of those games for sure must be crappy.

There was the commercially available Monopoly: Milk Chocolate Game.

I've seen people play Go using m&m or other mints as the Go stones.

I found a copy of Cluedo Chocolate Edition at Goodwill once.

It was complete and (clearly) unplayed. I probably should have bought it just for the entertainment value of buying secondhand food at a thrift shop. But sanity/hygiene won the day and I left it on the shelf.

somewhere around christmas and the end of the year period, I see edible chocolate versions of monopoly, trivial pursuit and some other games appear in the mainstream shops here in belgium.
Haven't bothered to spend any money on them because
a) I'm not such a fan of those titles
b) there's chocolate of much better quality to get for half the price

for the rest haven't seen many edible games yet.

I keep meaning to make a dessert-game, an Eight Minute Empires-like area-control game with a board made of various cakes, where players fight for the territories they want to eat.

The problem is that I don't like placing those sorts of restrictions on what people get to eat! There should be enough for everyone to have as much as they please of everything! This defeats the point of the game.

Alternatively, you could think about what games you could replace pieces with candy. Sweet tart checkers, skittles chinese checkers, backgammon would be fun when your mouth is where you bear your pieces off to.

Just got a flash in my head of playing Axis & Allies with edible pieces. Trying to conquer the world before you get sick of eating every piece you destroy...

For my 17th birthday I received a tournament size chess set, made of chocolate. The pieces were solid.

It was a lot of chocolate...

I've done "run for your life candyman" with gingerbread cookies instead of the slips of paper. I also like using small candies, like M&Ms, for counters in large magic tournaments.

There was a joke in Knights of the Dinner Table about a DM who'd give out M&M's during the game to mark who had received XP's. And one player never leveled up because he kept eating his XP's during the course of the game.

I've seen a chess set where the pieces were all shot glasses and every time you captured one of your opponent's pieces, you drank that shot. It's an interesting handicapping method - if you did well early in the game, your opponent would have a chance to come back as you sank into intoxication.
