Bow Down to the Snack God Pantheon

Powered by Geek & Sundry

If you’ve been watching Game the Game on our Twitch channel, you’ve heard Becca and Ivan speak the names of a few of the Snack Gods, but who are they? What do they want from you? And what do they want from each other?

Major Deities

Azaque: God of the Barbecue

Also known as: Father of the Gods, King of the Grill

Avatar: Grill

As the Father of the Gods, Azaque hosts the gatherings of the gods. He spends his time with Huuzeer by the grill, making the perfect steak with a beer in his hand and leaving his wife, Rachotep, to make sure the party goes off without a hitch. He keeps the other gods in their place and tending their roles.

Rachotep: Goddess of Hosting

Also known as: Enforcer of Manners, Socialite

Avatar: Apron

Rachotep rises to the challenge of any party, always setting the perfect table. She leaves Azaque  to the grill because she knows people will remember her contributions more. Her ire is raised by bad manners, not rsvp-ing, and arriving late. She throws coasters like throwing stars at offenders.

Ushnux: God of Sweets

Also known as: The Bringer of Sweets, The Decayer of Teeth

Avatar: Doughnut

Everyone’s favorite god, Ushnux is as sweet as pie (and would love it if you had a slice of pie). He makes sure dentists stay in business and is up for anything, so long as it’s sweet.

Sizzlork: Goddess of Savory

Also known as: The Tasty One, The Filling God

Avatar: Bacon

On the other side of the coin, Sizzlork is as tough as Ushnux is sweet. She is all about experiencing life and getting the most out of everything.

Huuzeer: God of Libations

Also known as: Master of Ill Choices, Lubricator of Social Affairs

Avatar: Beer

Always the life of the party, Huuzeer is laid back unless there is a keg in need of being tapped. He is the first one to do a keg stand and can be found mixing drinks behind the bar (and having a few sips for himself). If you want to invoke him, just say, “Watch this.  Hold my beer.”

Bistoe: Goddess of Leafy Green

Also known as: Our Green Lady, The Untouched

Avatar: Veggie Tray

Bistoe is the most overlooked of all the gods. She can be found in the corner, arguing with her sister, Bana-ra.

Bana-ra: Goddess of Fruit

Also known as: Mistress of the Melons

Avatar: Melons

Bana-ra is just a step or two above her sister in the hierarchy of gods. People don’t go out of their way to avoid her offerings, but neither do they go for it first. There is an ongoing argument between Bana-ra and Bistoe over who gets the tomato.

Minor Deities

Carbonella: Goddess of Yeast

Also known as: The Yeast Master

Avatar: Bread

Carbonella is the daughter of Ushnux and Sizzlork. She was conceived during the Festival of Great Repute (the most successful of Rachotep’s parties). She is purported to rise to heights unseen by either of her parents and even holds sway with Huuzeer.

Diptune: God of Dips

Also known as: Chip Master

Avatar: Hummus

Diptune can be warm or cold, depending on what the situation calls for. He’s good friends with Carbonella and Tog’itii.

Tog’itii: God of Spices

Also known as: The Hot One, Flavorful

Avatar: Jalapeno Pepper

Tog’itii knows life would be bland without him.  He’s constantly trying out new mixes and blends to keep you guessing.

Bynar: God of Fried Foods

Also known as: The Versatile One

Avatar: Fried Oreo

Bynar gets along with everyone, because you can fry anything (even beer). His reach is universal which makes him chafe at his minor status. One day, he hopes to be elevated to the ranks of major deity.

Nyadon: Goddess of Candy Bars

Also known as: The Chocolate One

Avatar: Chocolate Bunny

Nyadon is the smallest of the gods.  She is as sweet as Ushnux, but has a core of strength that keeps her from being trampled by the other gods.  They may still make pocket size jokes, but it is done in a loving way.

Vishnaarl: Goddess of Food on a Stick

Also known as: The Portable One

Avatar: Kabab

Vishnaarl is everyone’s favorite god when they go to fairs.  She believes that everything is better if you can walk around while eating it.  She loves finding a way to make food portable for the masses.

There have been whispers of other gods in the pantheon and those of the under-pantheon, evil gods of hangovers and food poisoning. They shall not be named at this time for to do so will give them more sway on the world.
