CMON Feature Friday: Game Night Grub

Gaming is a social event. For some, it’s all about the game, itself. For others, it’s about the people they get to spend time with. Either way, you’re enjoying face-to-face interactions with friends, feeding off of their energy and sharing an experience with them. Eating a meal with a group of people has many of the same elements as gaming. It’s a social time spent gathered around a table, having a collective experience. It’s only natural that there’s a lot of crossover between board games and the culinary world. We eat and drink while we play (although that may be sacrilege for some readers), and there are countless games themed around food and drink. Games are a reflection of life and food is a huge part of our lives.    

For this week’s CMON Feature Friday, we decided to look at some recipes that work really well with certain games. You may not want to play and eat, but these dishes will get you in the mood to game, or serve as a good source of sustenance during post game discussions.  

Unfair and Homemade Corn Dogs  (Source)

The sights, sounds, and smells of an amusement park are very visceral. They immediately transport us back to a time in our youth when we can envision flying through the sky on a rollercoaster or futilely tossing balls to knock over a tower of bottles. Unfair hilariously captures the fun of building your own theme park, with all of the rides, attractions, theatres, and food vendors you’d expect to see there. Nothing says fun fair food to us like a corn dog. We tracked down a homemade recipe that you can enjoy while you play.  


• 1 cup yellow cornmeal  

• 1 cup all-purpose flour  

• ¼ teaspoon salt  

•1/8 teaspoon black pepper  

•1/4 cup white sugar  

• 4 teaspoons baking powder  

• 1 egg  

• 1 cup milk  

• 1 quart vegetable oil for frying  

• 2 packages beef frankfurters  

• wooden skewers  


•In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, sugar, and baking powder. Stir in egg and milk.  

• Preheat oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat. Insert wooden skewers into frankfurters. Roll frankfurters in batter until well coated.  

• Fry 2-3 corn dogs at a time until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels.  

You can begin perfecting the recipe now and be ready for Unfair’s release in Q2 of 2017 from CMON and Good Games Publishing!
