5 Must Buy Gamer Gear Items

Hubby and I love shopping at Think Geek for presents and just for ourselves to enjoy really cool things! I thought I would highlight some of the awesome gaming themed items you can buy from them:

Classic Collectors Arcade watch

arcade watch

This is a real working watch that displays the time in analog-style. It uses a fun combination of dials with asteroids and a little ship. Press the "fire" button to light up red the hour indicator dots on the dial and revel in the "pew" sound as you destroy... several seconds of your life.

The joystick is ornamental, but how could this watch be as awesome without it?

It could not.

It may be a bit bulky, but it still seems pretty awesome!


 Critical Hit D20 12 oz Ceramic Mug w/ Lid

What goes better with gaming then hot cup of coffee or tea? And let's face it, if you are gaming and going to be enjoying a cup of something, you need an awesome mug!

This Critical hit dice mug has a lid that allows you to steep your tea or just keep your beverage of choice warm longer. But also has the awesome bonus of keeping the dice out of your drink! YAY!

The mug is dishwasher and microwave safe, because we've met you.....and honestly, every mug should be. Seriously. If they aren't dishwasher safe, they don't belong in my life.

Portal Bookends

Do you need somewhere to keep your science manuals? Then you need these Bookends!

The left side features half of a test subject going through an orange portal, and of course the right side features the other half of the test subject coming out the blue portal.

Ok ok you don't have to use it for your science manuals....we will accept gamer guides as well.

Minecraft Sheet Magnets

Need to hang stuff on the fridge?

Hate when it's boring and blah?

These fridge magnets are really cool, and even the kids will like them!

In each pack of Minecraft Refrigerator Magnets, you will receive two magnetic sheets packed with 80 colorful, classic blocks.  



Power-Up Arcade Light Switch Plate

Light Switch

Replace your light switch with a joystick with the Power-Up Arcade Light Switch Plate!

Recapture the joy of living in the arcade as a kid with this easy-to-set-up light switch plate. No wiring or electrician skills are needed.

The Power-Up Arcade Light Switch Plate easily fits over your existing wall switch. Just remove the 2 screws on your switch plate and place the Power-Up Arcade Light Switch Plate over the top and replace the 2 screws. Because this switch plate is powered by 2 internal "AA" batteries, no electrical connection is needed!

6 Must Buy Things for Game of Thrones Fans

Hubby and I had managed to skip the whole Game of Thrones craze, right up until mid-way through Season 6. Then he caved, and talked me into watching it.

We ended up watching all 6 seasons in a matter of a few weeks, and now we are hooked. We caught up too fast, and now have to wait until next year to get new episodes, so I thought I would find some really cool merchandise for myself and other Game Of Throne Fans.

Game of Thrones Wax Seals Coasters

Game of thrones wax seals Every one knows the best way to show the house you support is displaying their sigil!

Which house will you choose?

The Game of Thrones House Sigil Wax Seal Coaster 6-Pack features 6 beautifully designed drink coasters that are made of silicone with the house crest designs.

 The Game of Thrones coast set includes the Stark, Targaryen, Lannister, Baratheon, Greyjoy, and Tyrell house seals. It comes in a nice tin canister for storage and display.  

CLUE: Game of Thrones Board Game 

High treachery and betrayal are behind the two mysteries to solve in Game of Thrones Clue.

Featuring a double-sided game board, players choose to solve the murder mystery in The Red Keep or in Meereen.

WHO was responsible for plotting the murder? WHAT weapon was used and WHERE did the crime take place.

Game of Thrones Longclaw Umbrella


When you are up against the storms of life (or weather) you will want to have this Longclaw Umbrella!

We have heard tales of it defeating White Walkers, as well as shielding it's holder from the great rains.

It comes with the carved handle look of the hilt of Longclaw with plastic gemstone eyes.  It has a thumb assist opening and closing as well as as a handy strap with hook and loop for when you are not using it.

And it's really cool looking!

Winterfell Desktop Sculpture

Ok I have to admit, this is really cool, and you can get several of the Kingdoms.  It would be really amazing to have a set up of all of them!

This cast piece from heavyweight holystone and captures Winterfell as a stunningly detailed desktop environment. Winterfell is a numbered limited edition of 1,500 pieces and includes a presentation box and certificate of authenticity.

This is a beautiful center piece of any desk or display.

Dragon Eggs Collectible Set

It's Dragon eggs. What more reason do you need than that?

No Game of Thrones collection is complete with out Dragons, or their eggs.

Please note Daneryus does NOT come with these eggs, and we wouldn't recommend trying to hatch them via fire.

But they are a conversation piece, and come in the collectors box.

Hand of The King Pin

Who put YOU in charge? Oh, what, the king? THE king? You'd better be packing some proof that the king sent you to do his bidding, like this Hand of the King pin.

It sort of lets people know that you're acting on behalf of the king. People in Westeros have no choice but to respect your power while wearing it. Just make sure your son doesn't have access to any crossbows.

It might be a good idea to lock the bathroom door while you're at it, but you should already be doing that anyways. If you can stave off the occasional assassination attempt, you can wield power second only to the king!

(Note: Hand of the King pin only works as a symbol of authority in Westeros. It just looks cool everywhere else.)

5 Gaming Room Decor Ideas

My hubby and I have been talking about doing a gaming and movie room downstairs in our 2nd living room.  So I thought I would come up with some awesome ideas to make the gaming room really cool!

1. DIY Media room candy display

This is a really cute display that make a great accent piece.  It's an easy DIY project using pegboard and chalkboard paint to make a fun display for candy in a media room or game room. It could also be used on an easel for an outdoor movie night!

2. Super Mario Question Block Shelf

How to make a Super Mario Question Block Shelf from IKEA furniture. Downloadable printable question mark template. This is a really simple, inexpensive, and cool looking shelf unit.  It would be great for game storage, book storage, and could make a center piece for the room.

3. Video Game Controller Art


Seriously I love these!! They are a bit pricey to buy, but I really love them!
These are completely original, hand painted controller paintings. Perfect for any game room or man cave.

Each painting is $35.00 plus shipping and handling.

Colors can be changed upon request, and most controllers you wish can be made!

Sizes to pick from are 16" by 20" or 18" by 24". Each painting is custom made per order. Please allow 7-10 days for me to complete your order depending on quantity ordered. Each painting is slightly different as I use real paint splatters: no 2 paintings are exactly alike!

4. Board Games As Wall Art


Make your board games, easily accessible, easily stored, and use them as decoration!

5. Mario Brothers Lego Aquarium



I have been wanting an aquarium for a long time! I think this would be an awesome way to show off our love of gaming and lego in our house while adding a beautiful piece of decor and ambiance to the house. What items are on your gaming room dream list?

4. Life of a Gamer

I like this because it takes some aspects of gaming, and makes a little fun of us.  It made me giggle.  The one where it jokes about ending the game and you sit there and think "now what", feeling like your life is over was something that hubby and I have experienced.  Playing Tomb Raider, and then all of sudden we finish the game, and just sit there.....hmmmm now what are we going to do?
