OTL GAMING HOLIDAY GUIDE 2012—STOCKING STUFFERS
The holidays are all about the little goodies that you find in your stocking. If you don’t have a lot of spend but still want to get something special for your gamer friends, this list is for you. Every item on the list is something small but special and is priced under $25.
Cards of Legend by Nelde
Reimagine playing cards but now they have your favorite Legend of Zelda characters. Your favorite card games will never be the same with the Cards of Legend. Spades, Clovers and Diamonds have been replaced with Swords, Triforces and Rupees. The one suit that remains the same is the icon of the life meter, Hearts. The face cards feature a range of species from Zoras, Gorons, Hylians and Twili. The decks are printed by the same company that prints the famous Bicycle Playing Cards. While you probably can’t play with this deck in Vegas, you can definitely turn your own card table into a Hylian game center. Decks come in red and blue for $15 or buy both colors for $28. Purchase it here.
Take a shower with your favorite gaming accessories including controllers, cartridges, console, Poké Balls, Companion Cube, Space Invaders and Tetris blocks. Digital Soaps provides a variety of gaming and geek inspired soaps shaped like your favorite gaming objects. Each soap features a different scent from the classic Vanilla to Mountain Dew. Soaps range from $5.50-$16 each with custom orders available. Stock up on gamer suds here.
