Shortbread Scrabble Cookies

Okay so they are technically Shortbread Valentine Cookies but I refuse to acknowledge the fact that something so cool could be limited to such a rubbish Hallmark Holiday. All you need to do is get someone to bake 98 of these and you could play and actual game of Scrabble. It might work better if you made them bite size rather than full size cookies….

In fact if you also had a set of scrabble letters you could then replace the cookies with real Scrabble letters on the board and eat the cookies you made a word with…

Actually I’m thinking scrabble shot glasses with a number of shots equal to the point value of the letter. Make a word and you have to drink it! I’m not sure how double/triple scores would work  though but it would certainly even the playing field…

Twister For Adults

 

 

You know how after a certain age whenever anyone suggests you play “Twister” somone makes a lewd remark dripping with innuendo?

The Karmasheetra takes all the subtlety out of the situation…

It’s available in bed sheet form on Amazon.co.uk, but there seem to be 2 entries for it, one at £19.45 and one for £29.98…

Custom Fallout Monopoly Board

 

Deviant Art user *PinkAxolotl created this pretty sweet looking custom Monopoly Board for her boyfriend.  The Cards look like they have lived through the apocalypse and all have perks from Fallout 3 or Fallout New Vegas on them.

It looks like she did it in German from the screen shots but a blank version is available to download including the board and cards so you can create your own (It’s 61.3 MB).

The only thing it’s missing is custom Fallout Money, I knew I’d been saving up bottle caps for a reason…

Beautiful Settlers of Catan Wooden Board


This is an amazing Kickstarter project, I really enjoy Settlers of Catan but one of biggest issues with the game is that all the tiles slide all over the place. A bunch of guys realized this and decided to make a wooden board to hold the tiles, it looks like it’s evolved into one hell of a beautiful project though with laser etched wooden tiles.

Metal Gear Solid Risk Board + HD Collection

 

The Metal Gear franchise is one that I will always have a weird feeling about, Metal Gear on the MSX was one of the first games I remember playing, I didn’t actually complete it until a year or so ago though. I’ve never played any of the other Metal Gear games though despite owning/having borrowed them on multiple occasions.

Anyway, I like risk, I like classic risk and I also like the new fangled Risk 2210 and Risk Godstorm games, so there is no reason I won’t like this game. It looks interesting and has artwork by Yoji Shinkawa the art director of the Metal Gear Solid Series.

 

On another note, I just found out that Konami are releasing a Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on the XBOX 360 and PS3. Oddly it only contains MGS 2, MGS 3 and Peace Walker (The PSP game that is supposed to be Metal Gear Solid 5) Why not include the original Metal Gear Solid? Some of us haven’t played that yet!

 

 

On the plus side it does contain the original MSX games Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2. I might play thought MGS on the Playstation and then get this so I can play the others and maybe finally get round to playing Metal Gear Solid 4 which has been sitting on my shelf for 2 and a bit years…

The HD collection is available to pre-order on Amazon, dunno about Risk… Oddly though the links below look like two PS3 links the first should take you to the XBOX 360 one…
