WowTrailer copy

If what you’ve seen from the Warcraft movie doesn’t feel right without the game’s unique style, you’l love Ivan Kuzkin’s shot-for-shot reproduction of the film’s trailer. Kuzkin used the game’s assets to create the visuals, and the final product shows an attention to detail that’s quite astounding.

Check it out below.

If you guessed “Game of Thrones Clue” would become a real product after”ThinkGeek announced their April Fools items” last year, you’re a winner!

The folks over at HBO are offering the official Game Of Thrones Clue with a double sided board that lets you play in Mereen or The Red Keep while you try and figure out who kills who, with what, where.

Personally, I think Tyrion will have them all kill each other and be the last one
standing.

It’s not even out yet, and Korean gamer “Pine” is already better at Overwatch than you’ll ever be. The two videos below feature Pine in action during the open beta. It’s hard to keep up just watching it.

mario box light

Yes, this Mario Question Box Light exists. It’s officially licensed. You can even purchase it. Plus…PLUS it emits a classic 8-bit “PING” sound when you tippity tap it.

I’m sold, even though gold coins don’t pop out of it. Personally, I think that missing feature is a major oversight.

carcassonne box

Engineer Andrew Jensen is a huge fan of Carcassonne and, after buying multiple expansions, found himself outgrowing the original cardboard box.

So, he made his own.

Well, he made three actually, but each box was a step toward the perfect Carcassonne container.

He was also kind enough to share pictures of the build which show how he turned a bunch of wooden planks into this beautiful box. Check out the gallery below.

Are you a fan of keepsake boxes and treasure chests? I am. There’s something about a well-crafted chest/keepsake box (especially when it’s themed or has a surprise inside) that makes me happy. That’s why I love this musical Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time chest from AFKforCosplay.

This handmade chest is made from stained cedar, which is lightweight and rot/bug resistant. It measures 12″ x 10″ x 9″ and the music is light activated. There’s even a version that’s perfect for proposals.

See it in action in the video below.

If you play World of Warcraft, you’ve spent some time in Duskwood.

Especially if you’re trying to level up skinning because…yeah.

One thing that makes Duskwood so fun is the creepiness factor. It’s dark, it’s spooky, it’s full of things that crawl—plus the music and sounds go a long way to set the mood.

It also just got an upgrade of sorts. YouTuber and gamer Daniel L is slowly recreating the classic Eastern Kingdom zones in Unreal Engine and he’s done a fantastic job of making Duskwood creeptastically gorgeous. He had me on the lookout for Stitches and Mor’Ladim.

120 sided die

When French-Belgian mathematician Eugéne Catalan came up with the concept of the disdyakis triacontahedron or 120-sided die over 150 years ago, it was, in theory, the most mathematically fair die possible.

Catalan’s theory has become a reality thanks to the talents and efforts of Robert Fathauer, Robert Bosch, and Henry Segerman who have created the first actual D120. Luckily for dice fans, they’ve started The Dice Lab to make it available.

They also made a video about the D120 and the mathematical magic behind it, which you can watch below.
