Bookish Boardgames Recommendations #1 + a guest!

Hello bookworms!
Ha, this post is and isn’t about books. How mischievous. For this one, my very good friend Clio @ Clio’s Boardgames and I came together with a few boardgames with bookish themes as ideas for what to give to people for Christmas or, most likely, for yourself. Games are great for getting people together and, contrary to popular belief, boardgames don’t ALWAYS have to end up like Monopoly, with broken families and friends turned enemies, as well as a terrible idea of how going to jail works. No, sir! Games can be actually fun, and to me it’s twice the fun if the game also has a fun theme and you spend the first 20min deciding who you’re going to play because you just wanna be all of them.

While we read some amazing recipe ideas, we decided in the end to go for an adapted version of this Best Butterbeer Ever Recipe.

I have tried the one from Universal Studios, which tasted more like melted vanilla ice cream and, unsurprisingly, was non-alcoholic. We decided to make an adult version with actual beer!
