Barbecue Breather

We BBQ Jews take few barbecue breaks. So when we do, you can be damn sure it’ll be to talk about something like…bacon. And not just anything about bacon, but something amazingly cool like:

This bacon board game!

Yup, that’s right, Mr. Bacon’s Big Adventure. Or, as I like to call it, item #1 on my Hanukkah list.

The goal of the game is to maneuver your bacon-piece through the perils of Meatland (the wiener wasteland, the mustard marsh) to reach the frying pan. It’s quite similar to my weekend mornings, minus the wheel spinning and obstacles.

Ignoring the whole cannibalism thing, I particularly like the bacon family pictured here playing the game. Dad with his argyle sweater and junior with his ‘B’ cap. If strips of bacon have this much fun playing the game, surely you will, too.

Not only does the game look entertaining, it just might be the answer to your very own holiday gift prayers (in addition the BBQ Jew stuff, natch). And if board games aren’t your thing, the game maker’s site has a range of porcine present ideas, from the sublime to the ridiculous.
