Bring your 20-sided die to the manager's meeting

Forget about the office with the ping-pong desk, it’s time to convert your conference room into the medieval realm of Men recently plagued by rebel orcs — their underground tunnel system known only by Dungeon Master Gerald McFeerney from IT, an expert at both sword wielding and Javascript.

Retro games in a briefcase that aren't backgammon

This R-Kaid-R portable arcade console is like your old Gameboy, only cooler, and with a handle. And that’s an open and shut case. Literally.

Stainless steel with vinyl wrapped Nintendo goodness

Now, a toy that you took everywhere in your youth transforms into a toy you can take everywhere into your arrested development. The good nerds over at ThinkGeek have created the Nerdtendo Gamebooze flask which, if you lack powers of deduction, is a flask decorated to look like the Nintendo Gameboy of your childhood. As […]

A brutal, undead revision of the classic strategic war game

I keep thinking that it would be good to get a board game night going again. Some of my favorite memories of high school (and sadly college) were hanging out with my fellow geeks and playing games deep into the night, drinking gallons of Mountain Dew when we were young, and Southern Comfort as we […]

Mechs, demons, superheroes, video game legends & more

Last Friday is we posted our Nerds vs. the Hollywood Armageddon At San Diego Comic Con feature, where we discussed the balance between the hardcore fans and the Hollywood machine that has taken over the event. It’s not necessarily a bad thing — the money provides for quite a spectacle, and elevates SDCC into a unique […]
