One of the most enjoyable and frustrating things to play with as a kid was dominoes.  It was an amazing feeling to see something that you have made go off perfectly but completely heartbreaking when things went off prematurely.  It is too bad that they aren’t popular like they once were because I think today’s kids would love them.

Well, at least some people still enjoy playing with dominoes enough to make this 30,000 domino tribute to Nintendo.  Apparently this was created by 15 year old referring to himself as a “professional domino-ist” and I wouldn’t disagree with that title after seeing this.  This is very impressive!

The dad behind all of the fantastic lunch bag art that I have posted in the past (just search “lunch bag art” on the right because there are a number of them) is at it again and this time has made a rather electrifyingly cute Pikachu lunch bag.  I really hope his kids realize just how lucky they are to have a dad that not only cares enough about them to do this but does and amazing job at it!

This of course begs the question, what do you think a Pikachu would taste like and which Pokemon would you most like to eat?  Let us know below!

We have a winner!  I have posted probably hundreds of geeky cakes on here at this point and while some of them are quite amazing, I don’t think any of them can compare to this mind blowing Skyrim cake.

This amazing Skyrim cake was made to look like Alduin, the final dragon boss in the main Skyrim storyline, by Vera from Baking Obsession for her son’s birthday.  Here are the yummy details for those who want to make themselves hungry:

It was made of four 13″x18″ sheets of chocolate cake, soaked in strawberry syrup, and sandwiched with bittersweet strawberry ganache (5 lbs of chocolate). Alduin’s core is made of modeling chocolate. His scales, horns, and spikes are made from gum paste. The double-sided wings are half-and-half (fondant/gum paste). His eyes are Swarovsky crystals.

Whenever I am playing some Halo online, I always try to get the energy sword because I know I can kick some serious butt with it.  There is nothing quite as satisfying as hearing a bunch of 10 year olds cry about the fact that you keep killing them.

Well, if there is another good use for Halo energy swords, it would be as a lamp!  Etsy seller TheBackPackShoppe is selling this amazing Halo energy sword lamp for just $70.  I might not be one for using a lamp (I prefer total darkness except for the light emitted by my monitors), but if I ever decide to buy a lamp, I want it to be this one!

When it comes to the Legend of Zelda franchise, Ocarina of Time has always been my favorite and while Majora’s Mask didn’t quite live up to the insanely high bar that Ocarina of Time set, it still has its legions of fans.

Well, it is for those fans that I decided to post about this awesome Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask charm bracelet.  Etsy seller TorresDesigns is the person selling this really cute Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask charm bracelet for $84.99.  That seems a bit high to me for a charm bracelet but considering how cool the charms are, I would say it is worth it.

I’ve been considering some ways to geek up my bedroom a little more lately and other than putting up some video game and movie posters, I haven’t come up with any ideas that were really cool.  Well, after seeing this amazing Super Mario Bros themed shelves and warp pipe table, I now have a desire to do make this in my bedroom!  Include some little speakers to play some Super Mario Bros sounds when you open up the question block cabinets and these would be the coolest shelves ever!  Too bad you can’t just buy this somewhere because I am really not very good at building stuff with my hands.
