    This is a video of Youtuber openboosters finding a 1993 first print (Alpha) Magic: The Gathering Black Lotus while opening a vintage starter deck. There were only 1,100 Alpha Black Lotuses ever printed (with an additional 3,000 less vaulable Betas printed the following year), ... / Continue →

    This is the $13 D20 Bowl Set available from ThinkGeek. Together, the two pieces form a D20 die. Separate, they form two halves of a D20 die that are fillable with chips and dip. Don't limit yourself to chips though, you could also fill them with candy like fun-size Snickers ... / Continue →

    In a move to try to get me to part with my hard earned (technically stolen) money, Nintendo has announced a special edition 3DS XL that looks like an oldschool NES controller. Plus the box it comes in actually looks like a Nintendo console (but who cares because you're going t... / Continue →

    Merriam-Webster has just announced 5,000 new word additions to the Official Scrabble Dictionary, and many of them are what I like to refer to as "bullshit", which isn't even in the dictionary but should be. A sampling of some of the new words: BEATBOX (v. -ED, -ING, -ES) to ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger shot of the game board right HERE. So apparently a $40 Legend of Zelda edition Monopoly game is coming out next month (September 15th). GameStop (who only gave me $4 in trade for my copy of Dead Island 2) will be selling a special edition of the game that includ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy trolling a lil spider (not actually a spider -- possibly a red velvet mite?) by blocking its path with imaginary walls. This isn't the first video I've posted like this. Here's an arguably better one from a few years ago. Some people claim it's the c... / Continue →

    Because who needs human friends, this is a video of a guy playing Jenga with his pal Moe the cat. Moe is pretty good too. At least until he rage-quits and knocks a couple pieces off the top at the end. The best part though is at 0:30 when he gets impatient and knocks one of ... / Continue →

    This the coffee table that Redditor fightingcrime's father carved into a Risk board. The amazing thing is that when you're not playing risk IT FUNCTIONS AS A NORMAL COFFEE TABLE. "That is not amazing." You live a joyless life. Thanks to BBQ, who loves how that guy has eno... / Continue →

    These are two videos featuring every title screen for every game made for the Nintendo and Super Nintendo, in alphabetical order. The Nintendo one is three hours long. The Super Nintendo one is 9 hours long. If you start watching them now, you will be finished in twelve hour... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of Aquatop, an interactive display projected onto the surface of a milky bath (made using bath salts -- actual bath salts, not the drug that makes you want to eat other people's faces) using a projector and Kinect motion controller. I am going to ... / Continue →

    This is a group of US soldiers in Afghanistan taking a break from soldiering to play a little pick-up game of Quidditch. Hey -- you better not break those brooms, my tax dollars paid for those things. Just kidding, I have no idea where my tax dollars went. Maybe I'll ask Unc... / 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 →

    I spy a hoverboard. First Dragon Ball moves in real life, then Vader force-choking, and now some Quidditch in real life pictures (although some just look like witches). It's weird how the internet works, isn't it? It's like, cyclical. Just one big turd-recycling series of t... / Continue →

    Penguins: everybody wishes they knew one. Same goes for owls. This isn't about owls though, this is a video of penguins at the Aquarium of the Pacific playing 'iPad Game For Cats'. It's basically an app with a toy mouse that runs around while your cat tries to stomp and tort... / Continue →

    This is a video from Switzerland of a group of three quadrocopters that work together to throw and catch a ball in an elastic net dangling between them. Why do we need that? We don't. AT ALL. If robots start playing all the throw and catch, what are our children going to do... / Continue →

    Now you can get any actor's degree of separation from Kevin Bacon by going to Groogle (not changing it) and typing 'bacon number XXX' (where XXX is replaced with the name of another actor!). I chose Val Kilmer because I just watched Tombstone and I wish I had a friend like Doc... / Continue →

    This is a miniature Death Star carved out of a ping pong ball and some card-stock. It's pretty impressive for being so teensy. Speaking of -- you ever played the game where you and a friend shoot ping pong balls out of your mouths trying to hit each other in the face? It's a... / Continue →

    This is a robotic hand created by the folks at the University of Tokyo's Ishikawa Oku Lab that never loses at paper-rock-scissors. How? By reading your hand then responding with the winning gesture in less than a millisecond. Whatever, I could still beat it. Ready? One, tw... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to, I dunno, print it out and tape it inside a Playboy or something. I know what you're into! So I was half joking in the shoutout of that Mass Effect Monopoly post when I said my re-re friend Terry was waiting for a Skyrim version. ... / Continue →

    Inspired by this Fallout 3 Monopoly set, DeviantARTist TommyFilth (take a f***ing bath!) went and created this Mass Effect version. As you can see, it would be infinitely funner to play than regular Monopoly, and at least 2x as fun as the novelty version modeled after your hom... / Continue →
