The Unofficial Game of Thrones Cookbook
The world in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series is huge and full of lots of people. And boy do those people like to eat. And now you can eat like a Lannister, too! Of course, you'll have to cook the food first, but that's why we found The Unofficial Game of Thrones Cookbook. Every dish finds its roots in the pages that brought Westeros to life, including: Arbor Red Wine - the finest spirit in the Seven Kingdoms. The House of Stark's Venison, Apple, Cheddar Plaits - savory meat pies, fit for any Warden of the North. The Imp's Wild Strawberry Fool - a dessert light enough to make Tyrion smile. Wilding Grilled Pork Chops with Stir-Grilled Apples - the meal of choice at Craster's Keep. Tears of Lys - the concoction of choice for bartenders and assassins alike. And a direwolf's buttload more (over 150 recipes in total)! Brew spirits to warm you in the coming winter. Treat guests to exotic sweets and alchemy-inspired cocktails. With The Unofficial Game of Thrones Cookbook, it's all possible! Feast your imagination on entrees, desserts, snacks, and drinks that will make your fantasies a reality! Please Note: Some food titles are a little spoiler-y. Just be warned if you haven't read all the books yet.
Out of all the various flavors of Monopoly you could own, we think this one takes the cake. (Speaking of cake, we're pretty upset about Bowser's use of the Trojan Birthday Cake to steal away Peach in Super Mario Wii. Very evil.) Gone are the property names from New Jersey, replaced with your favorite Nintendo characters, grouped mostly by game. Collect Samus Aran, Ridley, and Metroid to complete the orange set, or Link, Zelda and Ganondorf to complete the green. Power-up your characters and build them toward being invincible. Zip your star past go, collect your $200 and drive your friends into bankruptcy. But we hear ya. You're sayin', "Monopoly takes FOREVER! I wanna kill my family members by the third hour! Mario isn't going to make it any better!" (Gosh, you're loud and demanding. Good thing we love you.) We're happy to announce that Nintendo Monopoly comes with Speed Play rules that keep the game fast and fun. So not only does Nintendo-izing it make it better, it makes it as speedy as Mario when he's high on invincibility star.
N64 USB Controller
It’s been almost 20 years since the release of Nintendo’s revolutionary console, the N64. With 64-Bit 3D mapping and games, it’s miraculous just how influential and relevant this magnificent console is today. But, as technology changes exponentially and old hardware gets thrown in the back of the closet or, even worse, in the trash, it gets progressively harder to go back and relive good times. With many of the best titles in video game history belonging to the N64, more and more gamers are finding their way back to emulators and other computer programs that let us play it all again. But, when your hand just doesn’t feel uncomfortable enough, not inefficiently spaced off axis in some distorted, “how did they come up with this” way, then you need the N64 USB Controller. Now you can really go back and finish all of The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time, buzz through Super Mario 64, frustrate your friends by using Oddjob in one of the first real first-person shooters GoldenEye007, or even tear up as you battle friends in Super Smash Bros. It’s all about going back to your roots, going back to a time when games were simpler and, as a result, that much more beautiful. Product Specifications A replica of the wonky and fun N64 controller for use with emulators USB enabled: Use on any PC/Mac with USB port 10 function buttons Precise 3D - Analog Stick Approximately 6 feet of cable
Giant Inflatable Beach Ball
If you're the type of geek who isn't allergic to sunshine, read on! What do you like to do at the beach? We're always up for some swimming if the water is warm enough, followed by a long walk, maybe collecting some shells, throwing frisbees for the dogs... but this product is going to revolutionize our beach trips. The Giant Inflatable Beach Ball takes a lot of hot air to fill, so we recommend using an electronic air pump lest you hyperventilate and pass out...
Leonardo Da Vinci Wooden Invention Kits
Leonardo Da Vinci was a gifted artist. A look into his illustrations proves what a genius he was . . . a comic genius, that is. Scattered throughout his inventions and anatomical diagrams are caricatures of his students - exaggerating their features (especially on the pupils he didn't like). It's true; look it up. Anywho, Leo also liked drawing weapons and other crazy inventions (some for the military and some as fodder for video games, which he also might have invented)...
Laser Guided Scissors
Okay, so we're not quite at the point in the future where everyone has their own flying car and, possibly more disappointing, we don't have personal laser cutting instruments. But judging by the way people drive while still on the ground, we're probably not ready for flying cars or laser cutting instruments for that matter. Still, a geek has to dream about such things, right? For now we will go with these Laser Guided Scissors, that will at least help you make some straight cuts...
SNES USB Controller
The early 90s gave us arguably the best console system ever created: the SNES. With games like Super Mario: All-Stars, Street Fighter II, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario World 2, Chrono Trigger, and Donkey Kong Country, it was a miracle that the world population continued to rise; most people stopped leaving their houses. But, sadly, technology advanced and SNES fell into the background. It became harder and harder to revisit the system when Nintendo continued to release better and better systems. The SNES was relegated to a box in the basement, attic, or storage unit, never to be seen again. But now we have the emulator! The emulator allows gamers to get the SNES system onto their computers and fall in love with their favorite games all over again. The only issue with computer play is that you’re limited to experiencing the best video game system ever made on your lousy keyboard. Meh. With the SNES USB Controller, all you need is a USB port and your tears will fade away. An exact replica of the original 6-button and directional pad brick controller, you’ll feel like you’ve traveled back in time to a year before your SNES went up in smoke from too much gameplay. Product Specifications Plug and Play SNES controller to play emulator games No extra driver required, all you need is a USB port Super sensitive buttons for precision control Supports Windows and MAC
Gummy Bear Ice Cube Tray
If you go out in the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise. If you go out in the woods today, you'd better go in disguise. For every bear that ever there was will gather there for certain, because today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic. Yes, it is time for the annual teddy bear picnic! It's a lovely time for teddy bears young and old as they dance, play, and shout, all carefree and happy. There's wonderful things to eat and wonderful games to play, including hide and seek. But it's better that you humans stay at home, because we've heard teddy bears will viciously maul anyone who catches them frolicking in the forest. Have your own teddy bear picnic at home with the Gummy Bear Ice Cube Tray. This food-safe silicone tray can be used to make bear-shaped ice for your beverages or bear-shaped foods! For wee geeks, we recommend pouring in different colored juices (or just a drop of food coloring in plain water) to get multi-colored bears. Or if you prefer your bears to be natural colors, use chocolate. It's a fun time at the teddy bear picnic! But unless you're the mommy or daddy, you're going to have to go to bed at six o'clock. That's how teddy bear picnics operate, you know. Product Specifications Make ice in the shape of adorable bears! Tray makes 16 bear ice cubes for your drinks Fun times: Use fruit juices to make different colored bears 21+ fun: Cranberry bears swimming in vodka! Make bear chocolates or colored bears with candy melts For crystal clear ice, boil the water twice before pouring it into the tray. (Allow the water to cool between each boil.) The boiling forces dissolved air molecules out. Made of food-safe silicone, dishwasher safe (top rack)
"With the popularity of netbooks, tablets, and other tiny typing devices, our fat fingers often yearn for a normal-sized keyboard. Alas, if we're traveling, our full-sized keyboard stays at the office with our docking station, so we are the Lords and Ladies of Typos.

Sting The Sword Of Bilbo Baggins
Certainly the tiniest of the three legendary swords, Sting was crafted as a dagger alongside Orcrist and Glamdring. Just as its siblings, it glows blue in the presence of orc and goblin. Lost in the Fall of Gondolin, Sting was missing for millennia. Finally, it was found in the cave of three trolls and taken by Bilbo Baggins. Sting earned its name from the way it was wielded by Bilbo against the spiders of Mirkwood Forest. They said that Bilbo himself had stung many of them with it...

Root Vue Farm
Multiple Award Winner, including Dr. Toy and Oppenheim Gold! One unfortunate fact about gardening is that you don't see a lot of the magic because it's under the ground. It's all fine and dandy to plant seeds and then watch them sprout, but what about the other half of the plant? Sure, you could dig up the plant to see the roots, but then it's just about dead. If only there was a sort of ant farm for vegetables.....
USB Mushroom Lamp
"Ever wonder what Mario would do if he couldn't lay pipe or rescue princesses anymore? Would he get a desk job? His fingers are a little too fat for data entry, so maybe Mario could get an entry level job at a call center, where he can sit in an ultra-tiny cube and answer the phone, ""It's-a Mario! How canna I help you today?"" And clearly, should Mario be a cube dweller, he'd want to illuminate his workspace with these super cute Mushroom Lamps. The red lamp makes Mario sit a little taller and the green lamp gives him the energy needed to power through until the weekend. If you put them on your desk, they may do the same for you! Each lamp is powered through USB and the inner light is provided by magic... or two super bright white LEDs, believe what you will. Product Specifications Red & green mushroom lamps for your desk or nightstand Inner light provided by magic (or 2 super bright white LEDs, believe what you will) Press mushroom once to switch on, press again to switch off Mushroom diameter: 13 cm (5.12""), base diameter: 10.8 cm (4.25""), height: 14 cm (5.5"") Powered by USB"
H2O Instant Water Candle Kit
"Two packs per order for even more candle-ness!! Candles have been used for hundreds of years to spread light where there was dark, not just because no one had invented electricity yet, but because they were so beautiful. And ever since about 10 minutes after the first candle was created, the first candle-lit romantic mood was created. But regular candles are boring. Time to play with some liquid density and cooking ingredients (also romantic) and put an H2O Instant Water Candle Kit or few to good use. Ok, so first you get a jar or vase or something (something glass with a wide mouth). Fill it 3/4 full of water, and mix in some coloring for . . . well, color. Drop in any other crap you want in the jar for to make it more beautiful. Add a centimeter layer of cooking oil on top of that water, and gently float a wick (which you already inserted into a floater) on the water. Then light it. It will burn off the cooking oil (since said oil will be floating on top of the water), and look gorgeous. By using some H2O Instant Water Candle Kits, you will have unique candles that won't drip wax all over the place. Oh, and, if the candle gets knocked over by accident, the water will extinguish the flames. H2O Instant Water Candle Kit - a simple, science-y, exquisite way to add some beauty to your world. Please Note: You'll need to supply your own vase/jar, water decorations (rocks, etc), water, and oil. H2O Instant Water Candle Kit Just add water, cooking oil, and a jar (or vase) to make a beautifully unique candle. Fire not included, either. Non toxic, but that doesn't mean you should drink it. Colors: Blue, Green, and Red. Each Pack Includes: 3 floaters, 18 wicks, and 20g (0.71oz) of coloring). Super Six Pack Contains: 2 of each color - for super decorating and stuff.

Laser Stars Projector
"Caution: This product is more amazing in real life than on a two dimensional website As you should well know here at ThinkGeek we are constantly striving to find tools for you, our loyal customers, to aid in your quest for World Domination. But we also want to encourage you to come up with schemes to conquer the entire Universe (and any parallel universes you might stumble across while conquering this one). And to properly conquer the known Universe, you'll need a a nice reliable star map. The Laser Stars Projector is not that map, but it sure does seem like one. And the second most important thing a Universe conqueror might do besides conquering Universes is seeming to conquer Universes. Keeps you buttered up for the real thing. Ok, carrying on then... When you turn off your lights and turn this unit on - trust us - you will be bamboozled with star rapture. That's the only way we can describe it. Everybody who has seen the Laser Stars Projector in action at the ThinkGeek headquarters has at least one 'Oh My Gods, that's Frakking brilliant!' moment. But ThinkGeek, what IS the Laser Stars Projector really? It's a unit about 10inches tall that projects a combination of green laser stars and blue (slightly ultraviolet-ish blue) clouds onto your ceiling, walls, pets, etc. Both the clouds and the stars are constantly moving and morphing, just like a proper Universe should. And there are literally thousands of green laser stars to look at. There are two ways you can adjust your Laser Stars Projector, first you can pivot the projector itself 180 degrees horizontally around the base so that you can control *where* it is projecting in your room. It can literally fill up an entire ceiling and portions of several walls at once. And the other thing you can adjust is the intensity of the blue gaseous clouds, from zero to full intensity. ThinkGeek, I'm a techie. How does it really work? The Laser Stars Projector utilizes a state of the art Diode Pumped, Solid State (DPSS) green laser combined with custom developed multiphase diffractive holographic optics, super luminous diodes and precision motors to produce the laser stars effect. The coherent light produced by the DPSS laser passes through a passive diffractive holographic optical element, which in turn passes through a circular periodicity electromechanical wheel, which is driven by a precision motor to create the soothing motion of the star field. So there. Hurry, get one before your friends do. Then plug it in, turn it on, and tune out... Features: Uses Green Laser and Holographic technology 2 built-in precision glass lenses Creates thousands of stars with or without blue cloud formations Ac Adapter Included (US Only - 120V) Unit Dimensions: 10"" tall x 9"" wide x 7"" deep Please note: It's difficult to portray what the Laser Stars Projector projects here in images because it works best in the dark. The images tend to mute the green stars and exaggerate the blue clouds a bit. But we've tried our b..."

Portal Cookie Cutters
At Aperture Science, there's a good amount of joking amongst test subjects and occasionally, if you're lucky, you can joke around Cave Johnson himself. Just do not, under any circumstances, bring his mother into the mix. Got it? No "your mom" jokes. No "Yo Mama" jokes. Not even a "That's what she said." Cave's very sensitive about those. The penalty for joking about Cave's mom? No cookies. That's right, you'll find your Aperture Science Holiday Gift Package is missing the sandwich baggie of Mrs. Johnson's Made From Scratch Science Cookies. Then you'll have to watch everyone else enjoying delicious frosted sugar cookies in the shapes of familiar faces around Aperture Labs. Product Specifications Set of 8 cookie cutters based on Valve's games, Portal & Portal 2 Made of bent metal, dishwasher safe, and packaged in an awesome Companion Cube tin Shapes: Portal, Turret, Running Test Subject, Falling Test Subject, Companion Cube You may be thinking, "ThinkGeek, that's only 5 shapes!" You are so good at counting! The Companion Cube is a layered cookie, which requires 4 cutters to create (but still only one mouth to eat). Officially licensed Portal collectible

Hot, actually, because it came from a cooling tank for the incinerator... Brought to you by ThinkGeek.

Deep in the desert wastes of Egypt, a great superconducting ring sat untouched for thousands of years. Finally unearthed, this great Stargate was eventually harnessed and brought back to Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station in Colorado to be studied. What isn't well known, however, was many hundreds of smaller rings, each no bigger than a hands-breadth, were also unearthed. The large Stargates took our scientists nigh on 60 years to understand. The little ones, however, have yet to be figured out. Were they visualizing models for the real thing? Could they have been keepsakes or mementos for the Ancient builders? Or possibly tiny gateways for mice-shaped hyperintelligent pan-dimensional beings? We may never know. The SG-1 program, however, ran out of money in season 10 - er, I mean - 2007, and Cheyenne Mountain had to liquidate its assets. Therefore, we took these miniscule Stargates, placed rippled surfaces inside the rings and called them coasters. Put your drinks on 'em so your desk doesn't get rings. How the mighty have fallen, eh? Sad. Still, you get to benefit! So, cool!

Cheat Sheet Kitchen Apron
There are good chefs and there are great chefs, and the difference between the two comes down to attention to detail. No, we're not talking about garnish - that's bush-league, man. Anybody can slice a radish into a rosette, but does anybody really want to eat it? Hell no! See, cooking is as much science as it is an art-form. A good chef has to work intuitively with his ingredients, but a great chef knows that there are four tablespoons in a quarter cup. Sure, that may sound like the absolute basics, but you'd be surprised how often world-class chefs forget it. But in the heat and hectic pace of a commercial kitchen, it's easy to freeze, freak out, and make stupid mistakes. If only you had a cheat-sheet! That may sound like a great idea, but with both hands full of hot pans, and bare flames everywhere, an inconvenient piece of loose-paper is a very very bad idea. What you need is something super convenient, with all the info you need as reference instantly available to you. How about an apron with all that reference material printed on it? How about we print it upside-down so you can read it while wearing it? I know. We think of everything.

USB Heated Blanket
"There are very few things in the universe that are better when they are cold. Among these are Revenge, Balrog, and overclocked processors. Most other things suck when they're cold - most notably you! That chill you get can't be warmed adequately with sweaters, stiff drinks or warm intentions! You need direct application of heat! If you work in an office environment, you've probably encountered the dreaded office-manager - that jerk that tells you it's ""against policy"" to have space heaters in your cube, but won't do anything to raise the temperature in the office. What does he think you're going to do, burn the whole building down? How do you keep from shivering to death? What you need is an electric blanket that won't draw the ire of that office-manager jerk. Hey, your computer spits out power out of those USB ports! Why not use them? Plug in our USB Heated Lap-Blanket to two spare USB ports, and spread it out on your lap. Suddenly, it's like Ebenezer put another lump of coal on the fire! Is it a Christmas miracle? Perhaps. All you know is you're toasty warm, and you didn't have to set the building on fire to do it!"

Shark Attack Mug
"Drinking coffee used to be so safe. The only thing you really had to look out for was burning your lips. Alas, now the danger level has been increased tenfold. There's a great white shark on the loose in the kitchen. We think it's . . . oh no. Did you hear that? Nervously we take a sip from our coffee, as we search for the source of the noise. Then another sip. And that's when we see the shark. HOLY CRAP - IT'S IN THE MUG!!!! It's in our Shark Attack Mug, that is. Each Shark Attack Mug appears to be a very basic looking white porcelain mug. But inside, hides (when covered in dark liquid) the head of a great white shark attacking upwards. The Shark Attack Mug is a great way to scare your friends and/or coworkers. It's also a great way to help you wake yourself up. Think about it: barely awake, you begin sipping your coffee. You're too tired to remember what mug you are using and . . . SHARK ATTACK! Your heart is now racing, all thanks to coffee and your Shark Attack Mug. Shark Attack Mug A very innocent looking porcelain mug, which houses an evil surprise. Hidden in the liquid is the head of a great white shark lunging up at the drinker!

What does that mean? It means you can't choose which one of the assortment you receive. If you buy one or more units of this product you will get a random selection of the figures shown. What if I buy four? Will I get four different models? Maybe. Maybe not. It is unlikely, but all four may be the same. They are random. I want a specific one now! Why can't you dig around in a box somewhere, find the one I want and mail it to me? Two reasons: 1. Our Robotic Warehouse Monkeys don't have the ability to discern the difference between various mini figures. They use their mechanical claw hands to reach into a box and pull some items for your order. You get what you get. 2. The packaging on these toys makes it impossible from the outside to tell what figure they contain. We would have to open the sealed package and hunt for specific mini figures. This is not really feasible. Or a good idea. Plus, it lets us give you an awesome surprise, which we like doing.
"Midbulk transport. Standard radion-accelerator core. Classcode 03-K64. Firefly." With a glance, River Tam was able to immediately identify the ship that would become the home for her brand new extended family. She would spend days luxuriating around the medical bay in a catatonic stupor, or wandering the decks in her bare feet, or braced against the bulkhead with a large tin of peaches. Yessir, for River, nothing said "comfort" better than Serenity. It might not look like much to you - a simple traveller of the 'verse just trying to make an honest living, but the Firefly class freighter's got it where it counts. A simple design means parts and repairs are easy and cheap. Heck, you'd have to be just about the worst Captain alive if you can't scrape together enough freelance business to keep a Firefly in working order. I tell you what - you've got the face of a man who's been out at the edges and peered out into the blackness and still kept your wits about you. I'll throw in this beautiful commemorative keychain. A scant two inches long, but just as solid and beautiful as the real thing. Just imagine that cute little guy dangling from your ignition mechanism as you go to full burn from the edge of the atmo? Yee haw! That'd be a thing a beauty, I can tell you. What? Oh, you... only want the keychain? Oh. I... guess... sure, we can do that. Just go see Saffron over there - she'll take real good care a' you.

DIY Blood Typing Test Kit
How many times have you told your love that you would cut off an arm for them? Or give them a kidney or your own blood if they needed it to survive? Well, cutting off an arm is easy, but foolish. And giving blood or a kidney is noble, but could pose a big problem if you don't share the same blood type. What would happen, you wonder? It's very simple - your loved one's blood antibodies would bind to too many antigens in your donor blood causing the erythrocytes of your love to burst...
Static Electricity Eliminator
As you travel throughout your day, electrons are shifting all over your body. Sometimes, like when you pull your sweater off or slide out of your car, an excess of electrons attach themselves to your body (you are actually tearing them off of the other substance). When you next touch a piece of positively charged material (your car door, your computer, or perhaps a coworker), the electrons rush from you to the positive charge. The result: a static shock. Static shocks are fun, but only if you are zapping others. They can be painful and also quite destructive; once a static charge fries your laptop, you'll know what we mean. So we offer a very easy way to help painlessly get rid of unwanted electrons. Attach the Static Electricity Eliminator (SEE, for short) to your keyring, and you'll always have it with you. If you think you are "charged," simply hold the SEE (making sure you're touching the metal keychain part) and touch the rubber tip to a grounded object (a metal desk leg, your car door, a metal peg leg, etc). You will see a little face flash on the SEE's screen, and you'll know you are static free. It's that simple. And with no batteries to worry about (because you are providing the electricity), you'll be able to use your SEE for years to come. So shout with us, "I defy thee, oh daemon of static!" Come on, we said SHOUT! Dimensions: approx. 2.2" long
