Real geeks don’t order pizza. It’s not that we don’t want to. It’s that we can’t. Get five geeks together and three of them will have some kind of dietary restrictions.

That’s no reason to give up on dinner and gaming with your friends.

In addition to hextastic homages to everyone’s favorite board game, this cookbook includes over 100 recipes tailored to fit nearly any diet. There are over 80 recipes for vegetarians, more than 60 for people with Celiac disease or gluten intolerance, 50 for people with milk allergies or lactose intolerance, over 30 for vegans and nearly 30 for low carb primal dieters. If that’s not nerdy enough for you, nearly all the recipes are also both kosher and halal.

Get your friends together for a game night. No matter how weird they are, you really can have them all under one roof for one meal while you play one game.

The recipes are split into two sections. The first half of the book is loaded with full scale, highly configurable, edible maps designed for nearly any gaming situation. The second half pays homage to Building Cost cards with recipes chock full of sheep and grain plus creative interpretations of wood, brick, and ore.

Have your friends over for brunch with the home made Breakfast Taco or Waffle Bar maps, impress them on a picnic with the Settlers of the Cold Salad recipes, or even host a Settlers themed Thanksgiving dinner.

If you need more sheep and grain in your life, try the beer marinated Lamb Kabobs, Moroccan Inspired City Lamb, or Panko Breaded Meatballs.

Whether you just want some quick snacks or are throwing a full blown Settlers party, this cookbook has recipes to complete your gaming experience.

Oh the pretty pictures! I am a hardcore Settlers of Catan nerd and this book is fantastic!The breakdown:- The photos are amazing! There are tons of full page photos of food arranged into the shape of Catan–hexes and all! The food landscapes are just gorgeous. They look fun to assemble if I wanted to throw a Catan-themed dinner party (which I have done…multiple times…because Catan is just awesome like that!). The photos are also really fun to just “Ooh” and “Aah” over with fellow Catan lovers.- The recipes all adhere to some aspect of the game rules. There are recipes for everything that can be built–for example, there are “road recipes” where there the two main ingredients represent wood and brick, or city recipes that have two grains and three ingredients that represent ore. In addition to the recipes themselves, there are exciting Catan things to help you to change up the recipe to fit your own preferences (1 victory point–add bacon!) or dietary needs (port–trade…

Wood For Sheep? PLEASE! Amazon recommended this to me based on previous purchases by the author. So glad I discovered her! Once again she writes hilarious, but utterly readable recipes that will appeal to the geek crowd. The recipes push creativity to its limits. I personally cannot wait to try to the Indian-inspired board. I also need to buy blue food coloring!Oseland knows geek culture in and out; she also knows how to cook interesting, delicious-sounding food. I appreciate the full-blown make an entire board food AND the quick and easy recipes. The photos are amazing and inspiring. I believe this is one cookbook with recipes I can actually replicate. I laughed out loud at the sheer number of ways she found to translate the Settlers board into food.Excuse me, I need to go plan a party based around this book. Enjoy!
