HUMAN SEE, HUMAN DO

Movie executives kept kicking Charleton Heston out of their offices, saying, “Who would watch a movie about monkeys and spaceships?” Planet of the Apes then went on to be one of the first movies ever to have merchandise tie-ins.

The moral of this story? Always listen to Moses.

The Planet of the Apes Monopoly Game is great for fans of the 1968 version of the movie (even though Andy Serkis finally made the apes look believable!). Instead of Chance and Community Chest, you have “Human See” and “Human Do.” Boardwalk & Park Place are replaced by the Forbidden Zone and (spoiler alert!) The Statue of Liberty ruins. Really, you can’t have spoilers any more on a movie that’s 49 years old.

The loser gets a lobotomy, and the winner gets to do their best Charleton Heston scream of despair!

Fallout: Wasteland Warfare Two Player Starter Set

Some of us here at ThinkGeek World Domination HQ haven’t been able to play Fallout since good ol’ top-down FO1 and FO2 because of stupid motion sickness. And while we’re waiting for our pre-ordered Citroen glasses from Boarding Ring to ship (yes, we are that geeky), it’d be nice to be able to have our faces eaten by super mutants just like the rest of our friends.
