Do you have what it takes to win?

April  1, 2019

Have you ever spent more than 40 minutes carefully arranging a cheese board until it's just right? How about intentionally wrinkling a linen tablecloth for an oh-so-effortless look? Do you like games? Do you like food? Do you like games that involve food? Then you might just have what it takes to compete in the first annual Food52 Games.

Contestants from around the country will face off in the ultimate set of challenges that will test their strength and prowess. And the winner could be you.

Read on for the full line-up of competition events.

Mason Jar Beer Pong

The popular party pastime gets a glow-up with chic mason jars and champagne cocktails. Ten rounds in and you’ll be fighting to remember what a “diamond formation” is.

The Rumple-Off

Betcha thought wrinkles were a bad thing! In this arty challenge, creating picture-perfect creases is the task—but rumple too much and your goose is cooked.

The Great Cheese Board Relay

Crafting the most beautiful, abundant cheese board is a feat in and of itself. But now you have to run with it. As fast as you can. Without dropping a grape.

Not Sad Desk Lunch Challenge

Think your PB&J is gonna cut it? Think again. Outdo the best in the biz with the finest lunch you can plate up. Bonus points for vintage silverware.

Shop the Story

So, do you have what it takes to win? To impress the judges with your food-styling, tablescaping, and cocktail-crafting skills? Sign up for a chance to be the Food52 Games Champion and victory will be yours. Oh, and also 75% off our Shop. For life.
