The Game Night Cookbook: Snacks, Noshes, and Drinks for Good Times

Countryman. Mar. 2022. 192p. ISBN 9781682686942. $24.95. COOKING
Savory snacks, desserts, and cocktails are just some of the treats found in Scott-Goodman’s foray into game-night recipes. Fan favorites such as Chex Mix are given spicy updates and join recipes for homemade pizza with an array of toppings to offer more stress-free options when hosting game night. The recipes are organized logically and are accompanied by hand-drawn art with an almost watercolor appearance. Although the drawings give the book a whimsical, lighthearted appearance, some readers may wish for clear photographs. Game facts are also interspersed throughout the book. Readers will learn the best game to play at a casino, how the seventh-inning stretch began, and the origins of air hockey. Included as well are handy guides on how and when to best prepare snacks for movie nights (along with a list of the top 100 movies of all time) and how to game out a game-day buffet.
VERDICT While many of the recipes are not especially unique, they are quick and easy for game nights, parties, or just an evening with friends.
