Play Your Cards Right

Delicate and refined, these playing cards from Misc. Goods Co. are the prefect foil to your run-of-the-mill sets from the local drugstore. Originally funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign, these are limited, first-edition decks, with a run of only 10,000.  Like works of art, each are numbered and never to be reproduced. The decks run for $15 and can be purchased on their website. And if you’re feeling funky, eBay has some pretty amazing vintage selections worth checking out.

Supreme Gifts
By Jauretsi
Supreme is known for their coveted skate-culture goods, from boards to caps. The brand has managed to remain relevant since its 1994 inception with recent campaigns featuring everyone from Kate Moss to Lady Gaga. If you missed out on some of their sold-out editions (which fly off the shelves), take a peek at eBay’s inventory for more “out-of-box” gifts such as their Supreme Domino Set or Supreme Harmonica. These are veritable collector items for any Supreme or skater fan. Trust us, you’ll earn cool points from this gift if bestowed upon the right subject.

Oodles of Fun with Cat’s Cradle

By Jauretsi

Before we all had iPhones in our hands, we messed around with Rubik’s Cubes all day long. There were a few other brain games that took over our lives in the 80s, but the rawest fun of all was cat’s cradle — a maze of hand/eye coordination. It’s a string game with strategy. It’s cheap, it’s impossible to break, and it’s ageless. If you want some wholesome yet fun mental tasks for you or your family, take a look at a slew of cat’s cradle strings and playbooks found on eBay. Here’s a photo series of old school players (it is Throwback Thursday, after all). Somehow, these photos make you want to smile.
