It appears that the artists and writers at Bungie up and decided to make a children’s book based on Destiny called, appropriately enough, D Is For Destiny. It’s a clever strategy. The time that you should be spending with your kids instead of playing video games can now be spent talking to your kids about video games. Brilliant!

From the world of Destiny, this rhyming alphabet book created by the artists and writers at Bungie takes young readers on a voyage through a universe of adventure. From Four-Armed Fallen to the Mysteries of Mercury and the Moon, D is for Destiny makes exploring the far reaches of the solar system as easy as A, B, C.

Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicle series is fantastic. As happens with all fantastic things, somebody has made a Monopoly version of it. That’s just how the world works.

Board squares were designed by Reddit user AnUnbiasedSandwich and the board was assembled by Tor.

Much like the trilogy, the game is still incomplete. AUS hopes to digitize the Chance/Community Chest cards and currency at some point in the future but, of course, you could always make your own if you wanted to try and play.

The book has all sorts of spooky details and comes with lights, sound effects, and a moving magnetic quill that follows a hidden, circular track.

All you need is a couple AA batteries and a place to put it. I’d love to see someone use this in a Harry Potter cosplay. See it in action in the video below. [click to continue…]

It’s no secret that we’re fans of artist Joey Spiotto and his Little Golden Book-style covers, so we’re super pumped about his Kickstarter project for Storytime – A Little Art Book.

Storytime is a full-color 132-page book that features all of Spiotto’s Little Golden Book-inspired art to date. Since the book is already hitting stretch goals, it’s been upgraded to an 8.5 x 11 hardcover with gold foil and a dust jacket. This is prime coffee table art book material and you can get your own for only $25.

You can also get an exclusive Kickstarter-only Stranger Things print, which is probably the best thing you’ll see today. Check it out below. [click to continue…]
