Watch This Woman Make The Most Impressive Move In Jenga History

Watch This Woman Make The Most Impressive Move In Jenga History
WHAT JUST HAPPENED?

Caution: Do not try this at home, ladies and gentlemen. (But if you do, please record it and send it to us, because that shit’s bound to be hilarious.)

When Redditor dkbobby‘s family gathered ’round the table to play a harmless game of Jenga, little did they know they’d all witness what I’ve declared as one of the greatest moves in the game’s history. Dkbobby’s sister-in-law decided to try and karate chop the bottom of the block stack, which they obviously needed to record because it’s practically impossible, but what happened next is MIND-BLOWING. We can all hope to be even as half as athletically skilled during our upcoming holiday game nights. No word yet on how this move can be applied to Scattergories. [Happy Place]

15 Awesome Board Games You Should Gift For The Holidays

15 Awesome Board Games You Should Gift For The Holidays

With the holidays approaching, families and friends all around the world will be congregating in houses, apartments and cabins to eat, drink, and be merry. Inevitably, they’ll make their way to the living room and play a board game. Unfortunately, most of them will be playing things like MonopolyClue and Risk, but, even apart from the fact that they celebrate unfettered greed, murder and warfare, take it from a games scholar — these games are actually terrible. The fact is, there are much better and more enjoyable board games being produced every year that are actually worth your time and money — you’ve just never heard of them yet. Read more on Ask Men…

D&D Game Goes Co-Ed

“It’s a good thing that boys are challenged the way they’re taught their exclusive activity is open only to them.” These are the words of a 25-year-old man named Sam. He may as well be speaking about any male-dominated space — ground combat, restaurant kitchens, construction work — but Sam was referring to one space in particular: Dungeons & Dragons games. The stereotype of the typical D&D gamer is man or a boy, in particular one who is socially awkward, skinny, and sporting glasses. As a result, role-playing games are not traditionally acknowledged as something women and girls do (although they totally do). In this short documentary by Meredith Jacobson, four middle-school-aged boys and four middle-school-aged girls play D&D together for the first time, while Sam the Dungeon Master oversees the co-ed experiment. It might just inspire you to pick up some polyhedral dice yourself! [Vimeo via The Mary Sue]

Pop Virtual Pimples With This Super Zitty Game App

Pop Virtual Pimples With This Super Zitty Game App

Now that I’ve reached the A-list in “Kim Kardashian’s Hollywood” — though I am still working my balls off and have a few more levels to go — I’m looking for another iPhone game to waste precious braincells on. And lo and behold, I think I’ve found one that appeals to my grossest instincts: Pimple Popper, the game that awards you points for “popping” a variety of different kinds of pimples. Each pimple type — blackheads, whiteheads, full blown pimples and pimple scabs — has a specific way it can be popped/peeled, oozes pus and makes a delightful sound. As you ascend the levels, the pimples become more plentiful, just like my face every day of junior high and high school! If you’re not ready to commit to the $1.99 price without popping a few pimples first, there’s a Lite version of the game that you can download for free. Happy popping! [Pimple Popper via Buzzfeed]

10 Bitter Life Truths Apparent In “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood”

I’m a late adopter so I didn’t download the Kim Kardashian game app, “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” until this weekend, a move I quickly began to sort of regret, as it is quite possibly the most addictive yet utterly pointless and unchallenging game ever created. I don’t even want to tell you how late I was up playing it on Sunday night. Okay, fine, I’ll tell you. THREE IN THE MORNING. Basically, the point of the game is to go from E-list to A-list celebrity by performing a variety of “tasks,” earning and spending money, growing fans and followers and building buzz through social media and networking. You do all that by tapping shit that appears on your iPhone screen. I wish I could say it was more complicated. I wish I could say that all that tapping is so boring that you’re inclined to just delete the game after 15 minutes. But that would not be true, because again, I was up until 3 a.m. playing it. In fact, I’m thinking about it right now, wondering if I should expect a call from Kim soon inviting me to her house in Beverly Hills. Luckily, only getting a few hours of shut-eye wasn’t for naught. See, “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” exposes some bitter, depressing truths about real life. For example… Keep reading »

Yes Please!

With the help of 4 batteries and 128 LEDs, you can actually play Tetris on this T-shirt! The buttons on the side of the light-up display work as controls. The creator, Marc Kerger, put it together to celebrate the game’s 30th anniversary. He provides the link to the Tetris theme song on his YouTube page if you’re looking for a little background music to fill the creepy silence of his video. Can somebody sell these on Etsy please?
