Archives For Cool pictures

Monopoly was always my favorite board game as a kid and I still play it on my mobile devices occasionally but I’ve never really done much with the novelty editions.  Sure, there are some cool ones that I would like (the Klingon version is one example), but they aren’t available on the digital versions and since I rarely have the opportunity for tabletop gaming, I just never bother with them.  Even so, I still like sharing news about geeky versions that fans have made (ex: Red Dead Redemption Monopoly, Final Fantasy Monopoly and Fallout Monopoly just to name a few) and official ones like the Klingon version I mentioned a second ago.  In the case of this post, I wanted to let everybody know a Legend of Zelda edition is about to come out!

Starting September 15, 2014 you can buy a Legend of Zelda version of Monopoly exclusively from GameStop for $39.99 (you can pre-order it now).  This is created by USAopoly who makes all of the novelty Monopoly games.

The picture below gives you a taste of just how good this looks but if you want to see more pictures of the board, the box and the tokens (Triforce, ocarina, bow, Hylian shield, boomerang and hookshot) check out the product page linked above and below.

So Zelda fans, will you be getting this Zelda edition of Monopoly?  Let me know in the comments below!

While I can’t say I understand what all the fuss is about IKEA having never been to one (I was living in Utah when they got theirs but it was so crazy when it was brand new that I wasn’t going anywhere near that place), I have heard enough about it to know you have to assemble everything yourself which is the idea behind this awesome build your own Borg Collective t-shirt design!  I’ve always thought it would be cool to have my own Collective but my hardware building skills just aren’t good enough, much less trying to fuse the hardware with flesh.  Maybe I will get that good some day!

If you have sense of humor when it comes to Star Trek stuff like I do, than this t-shirt is perfect for you!  The amazing folks over at TShirtbordello are selling this Build A Borg t-shirt for just $14.99!  This shirt is certain to make all of your Borg loving friends laugh, especially if they are also IKEA nuts.

Just remember, while wearing this shirt, your standard greeting must be “We Are the Borg. You Will be Assimilated. Resistance is Futile.”

Although I have had the game since nearly the time it came out (well, I think it was the first big Steam sale after it came out because these days I will almost never pay full price for a game), I still have yet to get around to playing Bioshock Infinite.  Truthfully, I never did make time to finish the first game and haven’t even started on the second but I think this awesome metal sculpture has given me the inspiration I need to move the games up to the top of my list of games to play.

This amazing Bioshock Infinite inspired metal Patriot sculpture was created by Geargoyle Metal Art.  I don’t know any of the interesting details like how long this took to create but however long it took, I would say it was time well spent!  I think it looks great!

If you were hoping to buy this, sadly it apparently sold last year sometime but I’d recommend checking out his other creations that are for sale over on his Etsy store.  It is too bad it is sold already because it would look great on my desk.

Other than classic shows like Friends and Frasier, I don’t watch too many sitcoms these days.  There just aren’t that many that I really find appealing with perhaps the only exception being the Big Bang Theory.  Thanks to the geeky nature of the show, I can identify with it perhaps more than any sitcom I have ever seen (although it still isn’t my all time favorite).  Anyway, while I could go on about how much I love the show and why for days, I doubt that is why you are reading this post so I will skip to the good stuff, this awesome Big Bang Theory ball pit cake!

I’m not sure who created this amazing Big Bang Theory Bazinga ball pit cake but it came across my Facebook feed last week from a Sheldon Cooper fan page.  Whoever made it, I’d say they did a pretty great job recreating the hilarious ball pit scene with Sheldon and Leonard!  Unfortunately, I don’t know any of the tasty details either so there isn’t much more I can say about it however, if you know any of the tasty details or who created this awesome cake, let us know in the comments below so they can get credit!

Thanks to the Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds game on the Nintendo 3DS, I have been on a major Zelda kick lately.  The Zelda games have been one of my favorites ever since I was a kid although there are still quite a few of them that I have yet to play and I am just now getting around to doing that.  As soon as I finish A Link Between Worlds, I am debating between playing Windwaker HD (since I never have as I used to be very opposed to the cartoony style when it came out) and the original Legend of Zelda on the NES simply to relive the great memories of my childhood.  Well, speaking of that NES classic, that is the inspiration for this awesome Link Cartridge of Time t-shirt!

The amazing people over at TeeFury are selling this fantastic Legend of Zelda and NES inspired ‘Cartridge of Time’ t-shirt designed by Naolito for just $11 today only!  If you love the Legend of Zelda and grew up spending much of your breath blowing out NES cartridges, then this is the perfect t-shirt for you!  If you aren’t a fan of brown, you can also get the shirt in either black or green so you have options.  They are also selling another shirt today as they are doing one of their TwoFury sales, but since I know nothing about it, I’m just going stick with talking about what I know.

I am definitely picking up one of these shirts myself and if you order one as well, I would love to know!  Let me know in the comments below if you decide to pick up one of these shirts too!

While I thoroughly enjoyed the Lord of the Rings movies, I have to admit that I have seen them only once.  I will watch them again eventually but I the extended blu-ray versions and to sit down and watch all of them or even just one of them is a big time commitment.  I have a hard time justifying sitting down and watching long movies (or even short ones for that matter) when there is so much I need to get done around the house, in the yard among other things.  That is a big part of why I don’t blog as often as I used to or would like to.  Anyway, for those that just can’t get enough Lord of the Rings, I came across this amazing Gollum cake this morning that I knew I just had to share.

This amazing Lord of the Rings inspired Gollum cake was created by Le Torte Di Christian Giardina. It features Gollum, also known as Smeagol holding on to his precious One Ring. Sadly, I don’t know the delicious details of this cake but it is definitely very well done and incredibly detailed.

If you love this cake, you should also check out the Gollum cake I posted about last year as it is equally great!
