cthulhu monopoly

I’ve always knows Monopoly was evil. It’s the favorite game of Mr. Burns and Cthulhu, which pretty much says it all.

Set foot for Miskatonic University, and battle it out with other Cthulhu occultists to find out who truly is the Great Old One among you. This Cthulhu Collector’s Edition Monopoly Game features fun Cthulhu and H.P. Lovecraftian style imagery, plus game tokens straight from the Cthulhu mythos! The winner of Cthulhu Monopoly shall be deemed most like the Great Old One and the most fit to inherit his mantle. Whether you win or not, you lose and become one of Cthulhu’s mindless zombies. Hooray!

If that wasn’t bad enough, you can gamble with your soul with Cthulhu Yahtzee. Check that out after the break…

The gorgeous spellbook gaming boxes you see above are prototype designs from Elderwood Boxes that are gaining popularity and heading towards a Kickstarter campaign. According to the site:

“Spellbooks are gaming boxes built to feel like arcane tomes and designed to capture the timeless appeal old leather, wood, and metal. They’re an elegant package that’s meant to be as functional as it is fun.”

Each box offers a different layout for your gaming storage needs and Elderwood is even considering having a whiteboard or a tablet holder on the space behind the hardwood cover.

While we patiently wait for the Elderwood Spellbook Game Boxes campaign to begin, check out more photos after the break.

Thingiverse user T.J. Owens has created an excellent replica of the NES that’s small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. The case is built around a modified Raspberry Pi B+ board and features working start and reset buttons.

Inspired by the Retro Pi Project, many frustrating hours of 3D modeling and alterations went into Owen’s mini NES, but the results look practically identical to the original.

Without a size reference (banana?) in the photo it’s hard to see how small and awesome this case actually is. To give you an idea, the Raspberry Pi board is only about 3″ by 2″ and fits very snugly in the mini NES. It’s really quite an achievement, and if you have a 3D printer and soldering tool, all the files are free for download on Owen’s Thingiverse page. However, Owen notes that “this project is not for the faint of heart” as “basic electronics knowledge and additional parts are necessary for complete design.”

There’s more photos of this mini NES after the break.

So what do you do when the super mutants and the deathclaws come a-knockin’? Well, you head down to the safety of your nearest Vault-Tec Vault, of course! If you don’t have a vault of your own, you can always build one like TreyHill did. The dedicated gamer wanted a way to keep his gaming room safe for when the bombs finally drop.

Though, for the record, I don’t think that door could stop a deathclaw. Just sayin’.

dice slide


This 3D printed dice slide was designed by Empirical Innovation as a way to roll dice cleanly in a confined space, but all I want to do is put a little pool of water at the end.

Apparently, dice slides can be had in any color for $30.

rousey vs mayweather

Ronda Rousey vs. Floyd Mayweather is a fight that will never happen in real life, but if you would love to see Rousey beat the crap out of Mayweather, the following video might prove satisfying. Game designer Richie Branson notes:

Well, now we know who would win if Floyd Mayweather and Ronda Rousey fought. I got bored and decided to play around with some texture files in my PC installation of Street Fighter IV. The result is this mayweather vs. rousey mod, lol. To eliminate bias, i simulated the Mayweather v. Rousey fight with both fighters controlled by the CPU.

guitar boy

Play riffs and retro games with the Guitar Boy, an electric guitar and fully functioning Game Boy in one.

This bit of musical magic was created by a BitFixGaming boards admin with the handle fibbef. He built it for the 2015 Game Boy Classic build off, and features Raspberry Pi B+ running RetroPie v2.3, with a 5″ LCD display and custom wooden buttons/body.

You have to check it out after the break. Hearing a Mario theme through a wah wah pedal is just too cool.

skyrim gtav

A dragon has landed in Los Santos and there’s only one person that can handle it. Fortunately, the Dragonborn is in town. He even made an attempt to blend in with his spiffy jacket.

The helmet kinda gives him away though.

mtg braille

Today in, “Well this is awesome!”, we have a young Magic:The Gathering player by the name of Richard who plays competitively despite being blind.

If you’ve played MTG, you know that you don’t want your opponent to know what cards you have until you play them. Obviously, having the cards read to him during the game would give his opponents an advantage so he gets around the problem by using a brailler.

To prepare for a tournament, Richard has a friend go through his cards with him to sort out which cards he does and doesn’t want to use for the game. Any time he adds cards to his deck, he types the card information onto a card sleeve in Braille and then places the card inside. This way, he doesn’t ruin his cards and he still has a deck that can be used for tournament play.

There’s more to this story, as told by MTG judge Imogen, who was kind enough to post comments with the pictures. It provides interesting insight into how MTG players with impaired vision are able to play within the rules and avoid potential problems.

You can check that out after the break.
