Recently, I was pleased to be able to review a couple of products for Small Niche Games. Today's review is of Tavern Menus: Fantasy Food and Drink, which is a short (8-page) pdf consisting of 6 different menus suitable for use in a fantasy inn/tavern sort of backdrop.
If you are anything at all like me, sometimes you get stuck on what's being served when your players' characters stop over at an inn for the night. Tavern Menus solves that problem, as each of the 6 menus are unique, with bills of fare ranging from the high-end to the bottom of the ladder (dining at the The Dead Boar, anyone?).
The visual design is nicely done, with the relative quality of dining establishment clearly evident. Prices are not included, since I believe the author recognizes each game is going to have its own cost ratio, but suggested prices are given a brief introduction elsewhere in the document.
It'd be nice to have a fill pdf where you could enter and customize the name of the establishment, but really, that's the only gripe I have with this product. It does exactly what it sets out to do, and at $2.99, is a great bargain for adding a bit more immersive flavor to your session.
A short review for a short product, but hey, what do you want? My players were wowed by this product, had a lot of fun picking out their orders (though thankfully not to distraction), and I feel like Tavern Menus fulfilled its side of the deal. I'll happily recommend it to anyone looking for the same sort of experience/prop.
