HOST YOUR OWN MODERN OLYMPICS.

Spin, spin, spin, throw! Run, run, run, throw! Many of us know of the shotput and javelin from the Olympics, either from individual sports, or from the grueling decathlon. First appearing in the modern Olympics in 1896 and 1908, respectively, these two activities date back thousands of years, though only the javelin throw was part of the Ancient Olympic Games.

Now they are recreated by True Genius to be challenging puzzles. The Shotput (difficulty 4/4) is made of rich, caramel colored wood pieces that fit together, one way only, to form a round sphere. Study it closely, and examine each piece as you take it out! Then, reassemble it. If you can. The Javelin (difficulty 2/4) is an easier puzzle, made of contrasting metal loops. Can you untangle them? If you can, how do they go back together? Challenge your friends and host your own mini Olympics, seeing who can figure them out in the fastest time. Just don’t fling them, k?

For a mouse who’s 90 years old, Mickey is still pretty spry. He just goes on whistling as he drives his steamboat down the river without a care in the world.

Batman: The Animated Series – Gotham City Under Siege

Batman: The Animated Series was a game changer in terms of both storytelling and artistic direction. So it only seems fitting that IDW Games should give it an epic board game, befitting its status. Say hello to Gotham City Under Siege.

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.
