    This is the $40 Walking Dead themed Monopoly game available from ThinkGeek (plus a ton of other places you're welcome to search yourself because I'm not Santa). It plays exactly like Monopoly, but with a zombie apocalypse theme. There's also a Risk game. You want them? Cool,... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual Ouija board rug and coffee table imagined by Dave Delisle of Dave's Geek Ideas. Pretty clever. You ever played with a Ouija board before? My friend had one growing up. We would stay up as late as we could and then ask it all sorts of questions about g... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the around 5,000-year old board game tokens recently unearthed at Başur Höyük, in southeast Turkey, making them the oldest known game pieces ever discovered. Any idea what they were playing? Chutes and Ladders? D&D? The Game of Life? I'm going to be a warr... / Continue →

    This is an $800 Batman chess set from The Noble Collection. That's a lot of money to spend on a game you're not even good at. But it does light up and project a Bat-Signal onto the ceiling, so, you know, totally worth it. I'LL GIVE YOU $1,200 -- FINAL OFFER. A press of the ... / Continue →

    This is a series of spinning rings that can be used to replace dice in games that require dice. There are also card ones. And a yes/no one. And a paper/rock/scissors one. The rings are currently a Kickstarter project but have already reached more than double the requested f... / Continue →

    This is a custom wooden Game of Thrones themed RISK set made by artist Fay Helfer. Hopefully it'll spur Parker Brothers to make an officially licensed version, because I would play that. I'd also brandish a sword at the table and drink mulled wine. Or wine coolers, I don't c... / Continue →
