Known as the “Game of Kings” Chess is the ultimate in nerd games. It requires skill, knowledge and an underline mental problem to be good at it.  When it comes to chess I would consider myself not bad! …and when I say “not bad” I mean rubbish, but I once beat a blind 5yr old! Moving swiftly on I bring you…..

10 – “Because I got high!” (£20.61)–(source)
In the 70′s it was most probably illegal to play chess without being high! Although nowadays are a lot different, people still enjoy smoking pot when playing chess because they think it helps them play better. For all of those people, this might just be the best thing in the World!

Ben Rousseau is the master of light play and this chess set just about says it all. With the amazing blue under-board LED’s and the rather impressive glass pieces Ben Rousseau has created what might well be one of the best looking chess sets in the World, but sadly it also has the price tag to go with it. But still…LOOK AT IT!!!

So buy it, place it out on the table and watch as people like me instantly think we can play chess.

Top 10 Sandwich bags

Sometimes I miss the simple things in life the most, like my mum making me a lunch box for school! But now days at lunch time (work not school)  I will go out of the office in hunt of whatever foods I fancy at the time. But more often than not I end up just having a sandwich from the local supermarket. But really I should not needlessly waste money and make my own sandwiches, that way I could have whatever filling I wanted and maybe even store them inside one of these…
