Brilliant New Game Combines Jenga and Jello Shots


Watch out Beer Pong. Make way Hungry Hungry Hippo. There’s a new game in town that is both part drinking game and part board game. Introducing the Tipsy Jello Shot Tower.

According to PopSugar, this tipsy version of Jenga is the “perfect Summer party game.” And we don’t disagree. Created and sold by Minnesota-based  Stone Point Custom Woodwork, the game is just like its drier predecessor except several pieces feature jello shot slots (see above). So, if you pull one such piece, you get a treat.

The Tower comes in two sizes, a Little Tipsy Tower ($79) and a Double Tipsy Tower ($89). Both come with jello shot cups with lids, and a jello shot recipe card (not that you need one) and laminated rules for how to play (not that you need those).

Both versions are currently sold out, but you can sign up to be alerted when the game is back in stock.


This Compartmentalized, Vertical Kitchen is the Jenga of Modern Appliances


Are you struggling to find extra space in that teeny tiny apartment? Or maybe you simply have a knack for compact household appliances? Well friend, it’s your lucky day. We’d like to introduce you to ECooking, the vertical kitchen unit.

This Massimo Facchineti creation has all the basic cooking amenities built into a single column. A stove, sink, fridge, oven, storage, countertop space and an espresso maker are all within arm’s reach. The design even features an herb garden with a UV light. Talk about a fancy shmancy portable kitchen, eh?

The only problem we see people running into is the unit’s height. This thing is the high-rise of modern kitchens and we’re guessing you’d have to be pretty tall to reach all of the compartments with ease. Hopefully, it comes with a built-in ladder as well. Shoot, it has an herb garden, it might as well throw in a ladder or two.

ECooking isn’t available for purchase just yet, but there’s buzz that it could roll out in early 2014.

Chocolate Stacks (on Stacks on Stacks)

We got racks on racks on racks… of chocolate. If every game could incorporate chocolate in some way, the world would be a much better place. It’d probably also be a much heavier place, but that’s beside the point. The point here is there is yet another classic game that has fashioned itself a chocolatey doppelganger. Build your teetering tower of chocolate and take it down block by delicious block until it all comes tumbling down. (£6.99 @ FireBox)
