I’ve hosted many game nights. I’ve also hosted many themed dinner parties. So, why not, at last, combine the two with a Settlers of Catan Party Tray?
Using hexagonal containers, I created an edible, 3D Settlers of Catan game board of snacks to nourish the most diligent of road builders.
Of course, not to be confused with the 3D-Printed Settlers of Catan Game Board I played with friends.
To build my Food Tray Game Board, I wanted affordable, food-safe containers. I found just that in these Plastic Hexagonal Weigh Boats and even had some to spare for a Year of Plenty of repeat occurrences. Once they arrived, I used transparent tape to combine them into a larger tray. Due to their flimsiness as a whole, I placed the whole board upon a tray for easy serving.
Now, for the resources. I wanted tasty items that worked cohesively to match game components as well as match each other for tasty party snacks. This was the result:
- Broccoli for Lumber
- Salsa for Brick
- Cauliflower for Wheat
- Green grapes for Sheep
- Black grapes for Ore
- Hummus for Desert
- Carrots for Roads, Settlements, and Cities
- Blue corn chips for Ocean
The Game Night was a huge success, and I’ve still got 81 more containers to build out more boards for future parties. I guess I’ll just have to host another soon!
