Has anyone ever assembled their assigned breakfast in honor of their review?


We should totally do that. As a matter of fact, we should make it compulsory, a sine qua non condition for IFComp participation :lol:

You wrote this, now you gonna eat it.

I would be okay with making pancakes and serve it in a tray that has a secret compartment which contains... more pancakes.

A lovely idea, but I'm not even sure where you can buy an egg coddler these days! XD

I do not want to be the author who has to make up a game matching "manna from Heaven with an accompanying chalice of ambrosia".

In sweden, we call the centre of wheat-seeds "mannagryn" and we also make pudding out of it, so combined with Robin's suggestion, that'd make it pudding with a side-order of pudding.

In that case, I guess such a game would be the one that sounds like it should be Beyond Amazing and then turns out to be a mundane, gloopy mess!

I ate my breakfast review in 2011. Since then these reviews had been one of the highlights of the comp for me.
