Keep those feet warm with HiLounge

I don’t know about you, but for me, slippers are all-but-essential for me, for most of the year. I just always managed to have cold feet. It used to always be moccasin-style ones, but I’d either wear them out, or they’d get a bit odorous.

Take your game on the road with the Dungeon Box Pocket

Well, at least, when it’s actually ok and safe for you to take your game on the road. I seem to be featuring a number of TTRPG accessories as of late, and I blame it on the resurgence of the popularity of it as a game genre, as well as playing it with friends at work (virtually, these days). One of the latest to cross my crystal orb is the Dungeon Box Pocket.

For when it’s safe to head out, the Outdoor Vitals Satu Pants are ready

It was back at the end of 2018 when I went hands-on with the slimmest “puffy” jacket I had ever tried (which you can see here), which was my introduction to the great stuff Outdoor Vitals was producing.

I mean, sure, you can can do without it, but if you like glowy stuff, you should know about it. One color I’ve not seen before is pink, and now TritiGlow has that on offer.

Keep your keys organized – and know where they are

Hey, so, do you remember that review we did a bit back on the Ekster wallet? One of the key things (aside from the push-button deployment of the cards) was their tracker device. Well, they’ve got that shrunk down into an organizer for your keys, in the form of the Ekster Key Holder.

Something to try from your table – taking over a Moonshine Empire

In and amongst this pandemic lockdown, folks have no doubt been keeping an eye on many of their grocery store staples, including those that fall into the category of “adult beverages”. Heck, even John was doing some distilling in a recent Zoom meetup we did with readers. So, why not turn that into a board game? That’s what you’ve got in Moonshine Empire.

Here, fishy fishy! Oh, those are dice?

Back when I first started into the world of tabletop roleplaying games, it felt like my dice choices were limited. I had some handed down from my cousin, and eventually it was picking up some basic colors from the local shop. Well, now, there is an amazing array of makers out there creating lovely custom stuff. One of ones that caught my eye recently is the Keyfish Crit by Green Leaf Geek.

And now, as Monty Python used to say, it’s time for something completely different. At some point in your life, you’ve probably played with a marble run. Perhaps it was the Nintendo game, or those simple wooden blocks. Or maybe even some plastic tower contraption (which is what my kids have in the basement). Well, something that you can stick onto a metal surface elevates things – and that’s what the MakeWay is offering.
