Mariel of More Than ... has been posting Game of Thrones printables this week in celebration of the premiere of season 2. Here are a few of them; definitely check out the others on her site!



Holy crepes—Community Pogs! I totally used to play with Pogs in middle school. Here's a refresher on what they are/the game, if you didn't. (Click to embiggen.)

This post is full of awesome Hunger Games art and crafts, like:



Also, I love this version of Katniss and Peeta. (Why yes, I am avoiding the terrible nickname the fandom has given them.)

These posters from Entropy Trading Co. are super cool.

NNGC Wes has a new nickname, friends, one that rolls off the tongue a little easier and is reminiscent of newspaper nicknames of yore: The Gentleman Gamer (TGG). Thanks to him for the following gaming news:

Why not buy a few Inflatable Sentry Turrets to go along with your Portal gun? (Thanks, Wes.)

While we're on the topic, here's a look at those guns in action. (Thanks, Wes.)

I'd like a whole set of these three posters.

This article series—in which the author writes about video game locales as though she's a travel agent—is a fun read. In this installment: the Citadel from Mass Effect 3. (Thanks, Wes.)

While you're reading about the Citadel, perhaps you'll also like to think about perusing the holds of Skyrim?

As are these 8-bit superhero illustrations.

  2. I'm too scared to watch any of the Doctor Who stuff! I feel I've ruined it already by seeing his new companion. I want to be surprised when it airs. :)
    And I love the companions as fairytale girls. And that short, Red. Oh my goodness, amazing! (Love anything fairytales. LOL)

    1. The trailer's pretty safe ... it looks like it's only for one episode. But I understand where you're coming from, not wanting to be spoiled. :)

      And I'm glad you liked the short!
