    This is a robotic hand created by the folks at the University of Tokyo's Ishikawa Oku Lab that never loses at rock-paper-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 →

    This is the 14-foot tall arcade cabinet built by Jason Camebris to bring back that feeling of being a kid and having to reach up to grab the controls. It runs a bunch of different arcade emulators as well as any Wii, Playstation, XBox or PC game, and looks like it takes quarte... / Continue →

    Remember that homemade wooden Game Of Thrones RISK game somebody made for themselves? Well now USAopoly (with licensing from Hasbro and HBO) is releasing an official version. It's the perfect combo! Like casually drinking beer and napping on a Saturday afternoon. The game... / Continue →

    This is a game of match the custom Star Wars license plate with the vehicle it belongs to. Can you match them all? I matched zero. H4N S0L0? What the hell kind of clue is that? "It's Han Solo spelled with a 4 and 0's." Well I'll be snookered! Okay so which one does that ... / Continue →

    These are the Minim playing cards designed by Joe Doucet ($10 in white or black). If they were any more minimal you'd just be playing with completely blank cards. Do you have any zeros? "Go fish." YOU'RE A F***ING LIAR AND A CHEAT. *flips table, storms into kitchen, tears re... / Continue →

    This is a video from Jimmy Kimmel of the cast of the Avengers stopping by his show to play a game of Family Feud. They are all pretty horrible. Don't get me wrong, I'd still hang out with them, but they're not getting any spots on my bar trivia team. Have I ever told you my ... / Continue →

    This is the retro style toaster stuffed with a Nintendo by Jarno Kotavuopio. Granted building Nintoasters isn't anything new, but Jarno took the concept one step further by creating NES game cartridge covers THAT LOOK LIKE TOAST (picture after the jump). I swear, some people:... / Continue →

    This is the Critical Hit LED Dice Set available from ThinkGeek ($25). The set comes with d10, d12 and d20 dice that light up when you roll the highest number possible. Allegedly they did their best to make sure the dice are weighted properly, although I have my doubts. Perso... / Continue →

    These are the $21 officially licensed Goonies playing cards available from FireBox. They are awesome. Obviously, I'm going to get a deck and mark them so I can cheat when we play poker. "You drew Sharpie penises on the backs of them all." Pretty subtle, right? The biggest ... / 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 →
