If you’re an avid tabletop gamer, you probably like to set a particular mood for the game. Enter Coins of the Forge from LA-based Boonzy Arts.
These candles come themed around a number of genres – Pirate, Dwarf, Sci-Fi, Steampunk and Zombie:
These candles, like the Wheel of Flame set, are meant to augment your game by providing an atmospheric fragrance corresponding to various themes. Each candle compliments a different genre of tabletop game and has a scent that is reminiscent of the worlds you may be visiting in the game.
Candle scents are still in development, but we have a rough idea. Scents are subject to change before the end of the campaign.
Take a closer look at the coins below. [click to continue…]

The mysteries of the Doctor Strange Lego set have been revealed—but it’s resulted in even more mysteries.
Thanks to Amazon Japan, we have our first look at the upcoming Lego set for Doctor Strange. It appears that the set is a recreation of Strange’s “Sanctum Sanctorum” in New York. The details—like the Vishanti seal on the window—are fantastic, but the set also raises plenty of questions. Like, for instance, what gives with the giant tentacle demon monster? Is that something we’ll see in the film?
The set will be available later this August. [click to continue…]
Artist Andrew Dat Tran has taken a selection of Game of Thrones characters and reimagined them as part of the Star Wars universe. As you’ll see, the execution is fantastic.

When a group of co-workers received a new pool table at work, they set about decorating all of the balls with hand-painted emoji faces just for the hell of it.
The resulting game, dubbed “Poolmoji” seems to make the game more fun. Clearly, the balls have strong emotions about their role in the game.
Maybe you don’t even need numbers and stripes to play a proper game—just make it happy emotions vs. sad emotions. The cue ball can have a neutral expression while the 8-ball is represented by the dead face emoji.
At any rate, if you want to play Poolmoji, you’ll need to find someone with decent painting skills. But I wouldn’t be surprised if these became a real product down the line.
See Poolmoji in action in the video below. [click to continue…]

LEGO artist The Deathly Halliwell crafted his own LEGO-version of the Infinity Gauntlet and we can only hope that he can be trusted with the power. Otherwise, Lego could rain down from the sky to clog throats, destroy our feet and eventually bury us all.
Halliwell also added Thanos to the mix and used LifeLites to recreate the glowing Infinity Gems and add appropriate menace to Thanos’ eyes.
Like books? Like shelves? Like putting books on shelves?
You would? Weirdo.
Alright then, how about shelves that look like the logos for your favorite comic book characters? What a coincidence! Istanbul-based designer Burak Dogan has created that exact thing.
Clearly, superheroes value style over functionality when it comes to storage.
Sadly, these are only artist renderings at the moment. Impractical or not, they do look pretty cool.
