Holiday Shopping Guide 2010: Games, Books, and More


Fun At The Office

Let’s face it. Some of the guys at the office wonder if you’re a ninja, the way you slip through the office unnoticed and overcome obstacles with apparent ease. Why not reinforce that impression with a ninja star coat hook? Perfect for the code ninja or one who just might be mistaken for one. [$12.99] Buy Ninja Star Coat Hook

Sometimes unplugging just a little can free up a lot of creative thinking. Logitech’s Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 goes one step further: it’s not only wireless, but needs no batteries. Using a 2.4 GHz wireless signal designed to use minimal power, the K750 is designed to be comfortable, light, and simple to set up. [$79.99] Buy Logitech’s Wireless Solar Keyboard K750

How about a die-cast Warbird such as this 1/72 Me262A-1a? [$24.95] Buy Me262A-1a

Nothing shows your love of military history at the office more than a dramatic painting. With dozens of aircraft to choose from in the Stokes Aviation Prints collection, you’ll find something you love, and will love displaying in your office. [$39.95] Buy Prints

  1. Civilization V is a thoroughly buggy game, and thoroughly lacking in any sort of viable mechanics. It’s as if the developers forgot the basic foundations of their series, since every mechanic, when traced back to the heart of the game, is ultimately unstable and poorly thought out.

    Even the one unit per tile mechanic is, while not obviously at first, a fundamentally broken and poorly implemented idea.

    If you still want a superb empire-building game, you’re better off getting Civilization IV, which possesses decent graphics and perfect, varied, balanced mechanics. Plus it has the best theme song for a game, ever.

    I’d pass on Civ V. Starcraft II, however, is a triple platinum title, and worth every dime.

  2. You missed a very good book- Caroline Princess Of Wales & Other Forgotten People of History by Strategic Publishing,USA.
    Similar to Skulldugery.
