game (meats)

A game is a structured form of play, usually undertaken for enjoyment and sometimes used as an educational tool. Games are distinct from work, which is usually carried out for remuneration, and from art, which is more often an expression of aesthetic or ideological elements. However, the distinction is not clear-cut, and many games are also considered to be work (such as professional players of spectator sports or games) or art (such as jigsaw puzzles or games involving an artistic layout such as Mahjong, solitaire, or some video games).
Games are sometimes played purely for entertainment, sometimes for achievement or reward as well. They can be played alone, in teams, or online; by amateurs or by professionals. The players may have an audience of non-players, such as when people are entertained by watching a chess championship. On the other hand, players in a game may constitute their own audience as they take their turn to play. Often, part of the entertainment for children playing a game is deciding who is part of their audience and who is a player.
Key components of games are goals, rules, challenge, and interaction. Games generally involve mental or physical stimulation, and often both. Many games help develop practical skills, serve as a form of exercise, or otherwise perform an educational, simulational, or psychological role.
Attested as early as 2600 BC, games are a universal part of human experience and present in all cultures. The Royal Game of Ur, Senet, and Mancala are some of the oldest known games.

    Spatchcocking chicken (or game birds)

    I've just been watching James Martin (UK TV Chef) spatchcocking a chicken. He used poultry scissors to cut either side of the back bone and removed the bone, then flattened the bird out and pressed down. He made this look very easy. I confess I've never spatchcocked any birds before - but now...

    The food and drink pairing game

    This is along the same lines as the Alphabet food and beverage game except that it requires a little more culinary skill. :D The idea is that you add a food or drink ingredient which pairs well with the preceding item. So, for example: potatoes - butter - garlic - bread - cheese - etc. Not sure...

    A few years ago two friends and I started playing The Crisp Game. Not sure how it all started but basically we try and find the most outrageous/unusual/strange/obscure crisps and try and out do each other with our finds.

    Answer A Question With A Question

    This is a fun game (I found on another forum) where you just type a sentence responding to the previous post - the condition being that it must be in the form of a question. It can be very amusing i.e. let's keep it light hearted. :okay: (For example) - Have you noticed how some clothes no...
