Aloha and welcome to the Zen Tiki Lounge. This week we visit another lounge, in spirit anyway. The Swinging Jivecat Voodoo Lounge is a cocktail themed board game currently on kickstarter.com that we are backing. David MacKenzie of Game Designers Clubhouse reached out to us and let us know about the game. Sunshine checked it out and backed the game right away. And, we hope after you follow the link, watch the video, you will too.
One of our favorite add ons to Swinging Jivecat Voodoo Lounge is the Cocktails in my Pocket journal. Not only filled with drink recipes, but you can take notes on the opposite page or just keep track of the shenanigans you got into when you mixed the drink.
Here is a description of the game, direct from their kickstarter page:
You and your fellow voodoo spirits have traveled back in time to poke a little fun at the hepcats of the 1950's and 60's cocktail culture.
- Power your mystical influences with voodoo skulls to link these lounge-goers into social cliques that give you access to the coolest party-people that all the hipsters want to be near.
- Score magical monkey points (YES, THE GAME COMES WITH COCKTAIL MONKEYS) to hang on your martini glass (YES, THE GAME COMES WITH MARTINI GLASSES) by adding jivecat contacts to your clique.
- Claim trend cards through timely and skillful manipulation of your lounge contacts.
- Be the player with the most monkeys at the end of the round in which a player scores their fifteenth monkey and be crowned King of the Swinging Jivecat Voodoo Lounge.
Intriguing. Fun. Inebriating. Help back this game so we get ours and you'll get yours. Visit The Swinging Jivecat Voodoo Lounge
Theres plenty more conversation on this episode of the Zen Tiki Lounge. Listener mail, tasting some new rums, citrus tree Q&A, pickling lemons and much more.
We recommend Captain Morgan 1671 for the bottle alone. This bottle is a beauty, a keeper to decant your own infused rums or spirits after you finish off the CM. The rum itself is a little smoother than the traditional Captain Morgan, with more caramel and vanilla notes. But no secrets here, it still isn't one of our favorites. But decent enough. At approx $17.99 its worth the bottle. Cheers.
