Fun Game Night Recipes for kids and adults

We're hosting family game night tonight, and, while I have a tentative menu planned, I'd like to add some fun, game related food. For instance, last time I baked sugar cookies in circles, then frosted them in pink, blue, green or yellow, and served them in a Twister box. My daughter suggested something for Go Fish. Any ideas along these lines?

  1. Well, certainly Goldfish crackers come to mind, in a fishbowl if you have one. Don't they make big PB-filled ones? Not knowing what games you're playing makes it hard to suggest. If you play Pigmania or any version of it where you roll two little pigs instead of dice, mini pigs-in-a-blanket might be cute. Frosted square sugar cookies with Scrabble letters and point values piped on. Take-home goodie bags for everyone with gold foil coins because "you all were winners!"

      great ideas, all. It's not really important to me that we match specific games that we're playing, as that tends to vary a lot depending on the crowd and their mood. Twister, UNO, Apples to Apples (hmmm, could definitely think of something to go with that), Carcassone, Settlers of Cataan, Munchkin, Scrabble....list goes on and on.
