    This is the conceptual Ouija board rug and coffee table imagined by Dave Delisle of Dave's Geek Ideas. Pretty clever. You ever played with a Ouija board before? My friend had one growing up. We would stay up as late as we could and then ask it all sorts of questions about g... / Continue →

    The board (bored?) gamers' votes have been tallied and the new monopoly token will be...THE KITTY. "The picture kind of gave it away." You're like a modern day Sherlock Holmes. The piece voted to be removed was the iron, which I think we can all agree is the crappiest piece ... / Continue →

    This is a custom wooden Game of Thrones themed RISK set made by artist Fay Helfer. Hopefully it'll spur Parker Brothers to make an officially licensed version, because I would play that. I'd also brandish a sword at the table and drink mulled wine. Or wine coolers, I don't c... / Continue →

    Nobody's gonna stop playing WoW to play WoW Monopoly, I'm just saying. I posted the announcement of a World of Warcraft edition Monopoly game back in February, but you know what? I forgot about that until my intern just reminded me so I had to add these sentences up here so I... / Continue →
