1 Wildlands Board Game

It has been awhile since I’ve really dug a new board game to the extent that I dig Wildlands, the new game from Martin Wallace. But, after playing my first game of Wildlands with some friends, I’ve fallen in love with it. In fact, dare I say that it’s my new favorite board game?[Read More]

Tile Sticker 8-Pack | Only $99.99 + FREE Google Nest Mini ($159.96 Value!!)


Sponsored by Tile

If you’re shopping for a tech-loving nerd who frequently loses their things, you might want to pick up one of these Tile Sticker 8-Packs right now from Thetileapp.com. I can’t stress enough how handy these little trackers are—especially for someone who frequently loses their keys, controllers, TV remotes, wallet, and smartphone.

In fact, my wife picked up a pack of these earlier this year as a birthday gift for me and I have them on those items previously mentioned, as well as my headphone charging case, Liz’s (my wife’s) phone, and her set of keys. They’re small trackers that stick to virtually whatever you want so that you can find them when you lose them using your smartphone app. It’s a small finder that sticks to everything you can imagine. And you can find whatever item you’ve lost right with your smartphone using the Tile app, which will loudly (I repeat, LOUDLY!) ring your trackers to help you find the item.

As someone who frequently has his young daughter run off with his wallet, keys, and phone, I can tell you the Tile Stickers have been the perfect solution to that problem. We absolutely think they’ll make the perfect geek gift for the tech-loving giftee this holiday season.

Right now through 12/31, if you order a Tile Sticker 8-Pack you’ll get a FREE Google Nest Mini along with it!

29 PosterSpy: Alternative Movie Posters Book

Do you want to go back to the good ‘ole days? When only a movie poster and a sparsely seen movie trailer was all you had to fuel excitement for the latest cinematic thrill? I’m talking long before the days of the internet before pop-up ads reminded us every 30 seconds of what’s currently the movies.

The PosterSpy: Alternative Movie Poster Collection hardcover book aims to take you back to the day of simplicity in movie marketing with a 240-page collection of alternative posters. Curated from PosterSpy, an art community devoted to creating alternate posters for Hollywood’s greatest hits (and biggest flops).

The hardcover collection is a vibrant and often gloomy selection of posters that will leave you wondering why you’re constantly looking at over-photoshopped works that have no substance. PosterSpy’s community of artists are talented individuals that put many of Hollywood’s premier movie marquee creators to shame.

Flip through page after page of stunning artwork for big-budget productions, like the Star Wars saga or the latest iteration of comic book movies, to more artsy films you may have never seen but can appreciate poster art for.

PosterSpy: Alternative Movie Poster Collection is a must-have for any movie buff. If you’ve been to your local theater to catch every big new release, you’re going to appreciate the alternate takes on movie posters you’ve likely stared at while waiting for your friends to get popcorn. 

From minimalist approaches to more abstract creations, each poster contained inside this 240-page collection will delight. It may even inspire you to swap out that A New Hope poster you’ve been hanging in your cinema room for something more cerebral and unique.

Gift yourself a collection of beautifully rendered movie posters or buy PosterSpy for the movie buff in your life.

Luxury Star Wars Pens (Cross)

Price: $400

Buy it here

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens around the corner, every smart merchandiser is finding a way to create some cool Star Wars merch. Now, high-end luxury pen company Cross has crafted the ultimate Star Wars Darth Vader Fountain Pen.

The pen commemorates the original 1977 film, as it has been designed to reflect the dark side of the force. It has a stain-black finish with Darth Vader-themed engravings, as well as a red Swarovski crystal inset at the top to represent his lightsaber. There are only 1,977 of the Darth Vader pens produced, and they’ve each been serialized for legitimacy as well as a certificate of authenticity. It comes with a keepsake box and stand (because what’s the point of owning a luxury Darth Vader pen if you can’t show it off to your friends). The hand-finished 18KT gold fountain pen nib adapts to the user’s unique touch, and it uses quick-drying ink that has been specially formulated. Of course, it comes in at a hefty price tag.

What’s more, there is also a Stormtrooper edition and a 23KT gold plated C-3PO version as well. These might be worth neglecting rent for.
