    This is a video from heavy equipment manufacturer Caterpillar featuring five excavators playing the world's largest game of Jenga with 27 blocks, each weighing 600 pounds. Cool, but a traditional game of Jenga is played with 54 blocks. This is only half a set. I expected mor... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Youtuber lilmul123 playing a game of Af-Tor at the 2014 Michigan Pinball Expo when the ball gets stuck bouncing perfectly back and forth between a bumper and kicker. He says it went on for several minutes before the bumper's solenoid eventually burnt o... / Continue →

    Two video game medley posts in a row -- things are getting pretty wild in here! I'm joking, I'm so sick and medicated I couldn't get a boner if it was the only thing I had to do to win a lotto jackpot. This is a video of two first-named Joe Jeremiah playing a 9-minute set of ... / Continue →

    This is a video of everybody's favorite nature documentary host David Attenborough narrating a women's Olympic curling match. You know, David Attenborough might actually have my favorite voice of all time. It's so relaxing. Like, if he read me a bedtime story before I KNOW I... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE just in case you have one of those home phones with the giant number buttons made for grandparents. This is a flowchart made by the folks at Silver Oak Online Casino (who surprisingly don't just suggest you only play online poker) of how to pick the p... / Continue →

    This is the robotic air hockey player built by Jose Julio using 3-D printed parts. If I saw this at the arcade I would jam its coin slot with washers then rip one of the guns from Time Crisis loose and smash its brains out. Then beat all the pinball high scores. The robot us... / Continue →

    This is Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise imagined as LEGO mechas controlled by minifigs hidden inside (pictures after the jump) by Flickr user Stormbringer. Good job. Way better than I could have done. I'm only good at three things: bad writing and even worse counting. Kee... / Continue →

    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 →

    This is the $150,000 Intimidator from McDermott Handcrafted Cues. It started life as an 82-pound piece of solid stainless steel, and 1,862 man hours later, became...this thing. This thing I wouldn't want to see anybody swinging that in a bar fight. Not unless they're on my s... / Continue →

    This is the $13 Star Wars Lightsaber Thumb Wrestling Kit. It comes with two thumb-mounted lightsabers and a book with a bunch of different arenas to do battle in. Unfortunately, I have giant's hands so there's no way my thumbs would fit through those holes. Penis, yes, which... / Continue →

    This is a Harry Potter inspired engagement ring available from Etsy seller houseonhudson. It looks like a golden snitch and is made from silver with a 5mm golden topaz stone as the centerpiece. And since silver isn't gold or platinum and topazes aren't diamonds, it's only $16... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the around 5,000-year old board game tokens recently unearthed at Başur Höyük, in southeast Turkey, making them the oldest known game pieces ever discovered. Any idea what they were playing? Chutes and Ladders? D&D? The Game of Life? I'm going to be a warr... / Continue →

    'Send Me To Heaven' is a real Android app (Apple denied it) that measures how high you throw your phone in the air. It's like a game. A game where the equipment costs $400 and breaks every time you don't win. Basically, the best kind of game. S.M.T.H. (Send Me To Heaven) is... / Continue →

    After a crusade by League of Legends developer Riot Games, the US government now recognizes the game's professional players as professional athletes, and will award them visas to come to the country and work (read: play the game). MUST BE NICE. "This is groundbreaking for eSp... / Continue →

    This is the giant basement arcade built by Redditor mertzlufft and his father. Mertzlufft sounds kind of braggy about it to which sucks because the last thing you want to hear from a person you're already jealous of is bragging. Have fun while it lasts, mertzlufft, but my dad... / Continue →

    This is a video from Rhett and Link (whose honest mobile home commercial is a classic that I watch bi-weekly) explaining the rules of 'Risky Settlers, Knights and Allies of the Lords of Dominion of Earth, Pandemic Edition'. It's a jocular take on the difficulty of learning the... / Continue →
