    Default What do you eat when you play tabletops?

    What do you eat/drink when you play D&D/other roleplaying games?

    I play D&D across from a Wienerschnitzel ... so you can probably guess.

    We do a potluck, since we always have a fair number of players and have 100% attendance!

    Last time we had wraps with spicy chicken, some pop, and some fruit salad (just a mix of fruit).

    Before that, we had tacos, and snacks.

    Before that, chili!

    My groups tend to start right after dinner, so usually not much. We've ordered pizza a few times. And occasionally I'll use M&Ms or something as minion tolkens-- kill a mook, eat the candy.

    The other week I made rice crispy squares for my group - and then it was canceled due to weather so family and I ate it. But then, when we played the next weekend I wipped up another batch the night before. Really quick and simple to make.

    Tea and lemonade also made the list for that one, and then later we had some pizza.

    Default Re: What do you eat when you play tabletops?

    Since we play at my house, I mostly take charge of snacks and suchlike. Some nights we order pizza. When we don't, everyone either eats before they come or picks up fast food on the way. During the game, we often have chips, pre-packaged cookies and the like. (One of our group has some pretty serious food allergies so we tend to stick to things that we know are safe.) I keep the fridge stocked with sodas and beers and everyone pretty much just helps themselves over the course of the night. Some nights someone will decide to bring some kind of drink or snack along for the group. I was actually introduced to my favorite liquor to add to sodas and such when a player brougth a bottle to share at D&D night.

    Since I enjoy cooking and especially baking, some nights (once every two or three months) I'll put together some homemade cookies, pie, brownies or something (with all recipes and ingredients being approved by the player with the allergies, of course.)

    A few years ago, the husband of one of our players was making sausages. He changed his mind at the last minute, shaped the meat carefully before cooking, and served us rat on a stick.

    Cheetos and mountain dew
    Ok jokes aside we usually get some sort of party snack mix or like chips and dip for dnd night. Although we usually have cola of some kind (a favorite is generic brand mountain dew). We usually eat before the game so nothing super heavy. Occasionally we order out.

    Chicken Shawarma. There's a place right where I get off the bus when heading to my DM's house for game, always grab it on the way by.

    In terms of munchies, that varies, but with a Bulk Barn nearby, the answer is usually "What do I feel like this week".

    Previously it was yogurt covered raisins. Yum!

    A few years back when I was taking part in weekly game sessions, I would usually pick up some coca cola, potato chips, and something sweet on the way over to the DMs place, sometimes I also picked up a pizza or other similar take-away foods.

    My dm lives in a duplex. The owner of a very good pizzaria rents the other unit. So, we order form them most of the time and almost always get some sort of freebie. At worst, a giant order of (deliciously sugar and fat covered) cinnamon sticks, at best a pizza. I used to order their broccoli, garlic, and shrimp pizza (which became my favorite pizza ever.) But, then I discovered their giros when I was too short on cash to order a pizza. I haven't ordered the pizza since.

    It's random for my group. Being the chef in the group Sometimes I barbecue anything from burgers to kebabs, we make stir fry or we shout back and forth for about two hours trying to decide what we want for dinner, and inevitably end up going to charleys Sandwich shop.

    we generally don't start til midnight on saturday nights, and sometimes we just drive over to dennys after the game; with so many place around where I live (we play at my place) theres pretty much anything we could want in the area.

    Pizza and soda of choice.

    Pizza is a great-tasting, high-energy food, as is soda, and the pizza offsets the caffeine symptoms, leaving players from being all hyperactive.

    Occasionally I get chinese, but then I'm hungry in like two hours.

    We usually don't eat and play. We take a break to eat ordered food or what I cooked as the games are held at my place. I make everything from sandwiches, to steaks, lasagna, all kinds of pasta and salads. One of my gamers is also loves to cook so he occasionally takes over the cooking duties.

    The groups I've been a part of have generally taken food breaks, going to some fast-food restaurant or to a grocery store and getting snacks (or ingredients for snacks).

    It actually makes me shudder a little bit. So much greasy food.. Ugh.

    Alternatively, I've seen a lot of games that are actually played inside of a Denny's or some other restaurant that's open 24 hours a day. The waitstaff enjoys the tips, and as long as you're not gaming in the middle of the day (most gamers I know are night-owls) the management doesn't mind.

    Usually pizza if we play for a while. Always try to have coke on hand.

    Snack wise, usually trail mix or something like that. I try to stay away from stuff that leaves orange crud on my fingers.

    what do we eat when we're gaming? beer. oh, and coca-cola for the teatotallers.

    regarding actual chewy food, dried meat in all its glorious, mouth watering forms *drools* mostly (southern france will do that to you, turns out it's great for gaming well into the night, being high calorie)

    Agreed!

    Actually sounds like something I'll try to get my folks to do when I teach them to play (either this weekend or next, just waiting for their dice to come in the mail.)

    What specifically do you suggest?

    truly depends where geographically you are, and if you trust your butcher's quality (i know i've got 3 different ones based on my needs).

    i'd recommend dry- or semi-dry saucisson (less grease on the fingers), especially if made with real guts (not plastic, you can't eat that), bayonne ham, chorizo (mild or spicy, to taste), salami (pretty greasy though), aaaaaand toasted whole-wheat bread with a paté of your choice (pheasant, boar, pork, hell, even duck mousse). then again, i'm most likely speaking gibberish to you guys, seeing as how i don't know where you guys live.

    when in doubt, deli meats and jerky should help you yanks out. remember one rule: screw the price, quality before all. you're roleplaying, make sure it's as memorable to the palate as to the imagination! [/gourmand]

    Usually we get together to game on Thursdays after everyone has dinner with their families, so most nights we just have 3-4 six packs of craft beers (I generally bring Imperial Stouts or Scotch Ales, others bring more hoppy offerings) and usually chips and salsa or pretzels.

    Back before everyone was married, we'd usually eat dinner together while preparing for the game. I'd usually make a huge pot of spaghetti bolognese.
