The party game I Have This Friend is a great way to get to know people. It plays out much like “Never Have I Ever,” except with players picking cards from a deck of awkward or embarrassing situations, then asking everyone at the table to fess up when it applies to them. Mix with booze for added laughs.
After impressing us by restoring a vintage pinball machine, Old Things Never Die is back with another project video. This time, they took an antique coin-operated lottery game that tumbled tiny balls inside a metal sphere, then dropped one behind a window at its bottom. The color of the selected ball corresponds to a prize.
Taking a hike through the great outdoors can be a relaxing and serene experience. But if you’re squeamish about bugs and other wildlife, you’re better off staying indoors. Thanks to the Molski Brothers’ A Trail Tale, you can experience a hike along the Appalachian Trail without leaving the comfort of your web browser. (Thanks Rob!)
You might think this object is a rusty bicycle wheel on a stand, but it’s a vintage game of chance that decides who will pay for the next round of drinks. Old Things Never Die tore it down to its components, stripped off the rust, and restored it to original condition. The clicky sound it makes when spun is so satisfying.
Smartphone racing games often require tilting the screen to steer. While it’s not a bad control method, we prefer this clever design, which places the phone in a cradle that’s been rigged up to a metal frame and steering wheel. Though if your game requires acceleration or braking, that’s another problem.
Rolling Stone’s party game isn’t a traditional music trivia game. Instead, it just requires basic memory of popular music. After a rapid-fire advantage round, players try to figure out a band or musician based on a single word, a lyrical quote, or by humming a tune.
“Why would you make a game based on a sitcom that last aired over 20 years ago and potentially incur the wrath of lawyers?..” Well, because Jacob Janerka and Ivan Dixon are hoping their concept proves there’s enough demand for a point-and-click Seinfeld adventure game that it actually gets licensed and developed.
While the cinematic trailer for EA and BioWare’s action RPG Anthem wowed folks at E3 2018, we’re much more excited now that we’ve seen 20 minutes of actual gameplay. Sit back and enjoy this in-game footage as a team of four players complete the “Scars & Villainy” mission.
This stunning ping pong / dining table is crafted from hardwood salvaged from colonial buildings in Saigon, cast iron legs from antique Japanese sewing machines, and topped off with a hand-stitched leather net. Includes paddles made from local timber and tooled leather.
Shuffleboard is no longer just for retirement communities, having experienced a renaissance as a hip bar favorite. We just love the look of these tables from Kush, custom crafted from reclaimed wood and metal, with abacus style scorekeepers made from nuts and washers.
