“Food, glorious food
What is there more handsome
Gulped, swallowed, or chewed
Still worth a king’s ransom”
from Food, Glorious Food by Laurence Jeffcoate
from the movie Oliver!
Whether you’re a gourmand or finicky, a diehard foodie or simply see it as an annoying necessity, we all have our own relationship with food.
All animals eat. Some have very limited diets, others eat what and whenever they can. While all eat, some have to try harder than others to keep from being eaten. As humans, we like to think of ourselves at the top of the food chain—although I’ve known some lions and leopards who would happily show you otherwise.
Here’s a list of games about food. Not games that feature food as part of the economy of the game, not games about the economics of running a restaurant, but games about food items themselves.
But, wait, I can hear you say. There are hundreds of games about food, so why this list of food games? Because they each have reviews right here on Meeple Mountain!
