It's Hanukkah. You're wearing your absolute coolest outfit. Everyone is gathering at your aunt Marsha's for dinner, which means you know there's bound to be some drama. Luckily, the cool members of your family are there to back you up as you work together to perform another great miracle this Hanukkah—a family gathering that doesn't end in disaster.

Latkes & Broyges is a holiday themed hack of Lasers & Feelings by John Harper wherein you take on a variety of roles, all working together to save the party from disaster. Take on such challenges as your messianic cousin, a trite and offensive card game, or keto-friendly noodle kugel as you work together to make this holiday a good one! 

Latkes & Broyges is written for 2-6 players and 1 GM.  In order to play, you will need at least one dreidel or an online dreidel spinner (available via Google https://g.co/kgs/ykjPMX) as well as a pool of discrete objects to serve as tokens (preferably gelt). 

Inspired by a love of fried potatoes and Hanukkahs past, Latkes & Broyges uses a number of Yiddish words or concepts in order to facilitate its story. Most Yiddish used is defined for convenience of play.

cute concept, and I am excited to try it out. However the game description said the Yiddish words would be defined, and I don’t see that anywhere. I was hoping to use this with my multi-ethnic family and not having the definitions is going to make the game harder for some of them to understand. I guess I’ll just write up my own cheat sheet to accompany, don’t bother about me. (See how I’m getting into passive-aggressive character?? 😁)

I just noticed I hadn't added the definitions to the printer friendly and epub versions. That should be updated now! Thanks for the heads-up. That should now be corrected.
