Games: Foodie Fight or Food Lovers' Trivia?

Has anyone played both (or either) of these games and have a recommendation about which is better or if they are any fun? I belong to a monthly supper club and want to purchase one of these games to bring to our gatherings.

Thanks for sharing any feedback you have about either game!

    1. I love Foodie FIGHT! I bought it on vancouver island this summer and it's just the right mix of food pop culture, cooking and baking, and food science trivia. My friends and I had a lot of fun playing it.

      1. re: Bryn

        Thanks for the reply. It does appear that people like Foodie Fight. Both games are well reviewed on Amazon and there is another Foodie Fight thread on the Chow boards and people mostly had good things to say about it. I think I'll go for that one!

      2. No need to purchase family plays the Food Game all the time and have been doing it for years. One person thinks of a food and gives a clue about it. The other players each get one guess. If nobody guesses correctly, you continue, one clue at a time. It's that simple. The food in question can be a raw ingredient like salt, or it can be a dish, like Beef Wellington. So both bread and toast are possibilities. Anything that is meant to be consumed. The great thing about this game is that it can be played anywhere, all ages, so while sitting at a restaurant or hiking or on an airplane.

        1. To update: We bought Foodie Fight but didn't have the opportunity to play it at the supper club gathering. But, we have been keeping the cards on the dining room table and pulling them out to look at during meals, which is kinda' fun when there is a lag in the conversation. We find them a bit too pop-culture oriented. Lots of questions about TV shows and the like, but they are still fun!
