Default Best food for Wargaming?

I frequently have 2000pts tournaments at my home between 4 players, and for meals we usually have pizza lunches. Occasionally we'll go up to the local supermarket and get either a bake of some kind or a bag of sausages/bacon, but that's pretty much it (I'm not a particularly imaginative host, and I ain't got no time for cooking when there's 40k to be done). What do you tend to eat when you're doing wargaming stuff? Bugman's is pretty much burgers or pizza, so I take it that's the most common, but who knows; someone here might just value their waistline, or some other crazy concept.

Get a dominoes in.

I wouldnt try any fancy shit, Pizzas and Beer. We're blokes right? No one is going to judge your culinary skills.

A buffet might be ok too, you can get all kinds of decent finger food stuff from supermarkets - chicken wings, mini pancakes rolls and indian stuff.

This just about sums it up, I think.

Pizza.
Biscuits.
Drinks (soft or alcoholic depending).
Anything from the bakery section at Sainsbury's.
Tortilla Chips.
Cake.

So pretty much what Jez said.

When hosting games at my home, which have been RPGs not 40K, I've always used the "throw it in the oven" method and done pizza rolls, chicken wings, and pig in a blanket. I pick up beer too but everyone is open to bring what they want. I do cook for myself & wife and small get togethers, but, when theres gaming involved my approach is "fuck all, the game comes first."

We tend to have gaming weekends so when hosting normally we will have a take away one night and I'll cook the other night. I try and do something I can prep in one go and leave in the oven or on the hob. So casseroles/stews or roasts are normally easy to do and a bit healthier than pizza's for at least the one meal!!

Assorted hors d'oeuvres or pizza. If I'm ambitious take a meal break and cook up pancakes/eggs/sausage/bacon.
