Space-Invaders-Playing-Cards

Long before we were boosting cars and buying hookers in Grand Theft Auto, and way before any Madden version made others question what game we were watching, we were busy entertaining ourselves with pixelated bad guys, baseball diamonds and space debris. We still get a sense of nostalgia with that stuff (which is why we bought an Atari off Ebay) even though playing those games now really, really sucks. In fact, most of our game playing has moved off the television screen and onto a poker table, which is why for the next guy’s night we’re dealing these Space Invaders Playing Cards. The standard characters and suits have been swapped out for the little dotted aliens we used to blast away when we were rocking Zubaz Pants.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
