It’s pretty hard to buy gifts for geeks. They most likely already have shelves of merchandise or rooms filled with memorabilia. So what do you get the geek that has it all? Aside from gifting them a person to share their geekiness with (we kid, we kid), you can never go wrong with geeky board games. They’re a classic staple and it’s always fun to bust them out during parties or small get-togethers.
What’s a better way to celebrate 25 years of the classic fighter game than to bring it to life through the form of a glass chess set? Street Fighter’s chess set has pieces made of silver and pewter-colored resin and a glass game board.

Everyone’s having a significant anniversary these days, but not a lot of them can top Doctor Who. This Monopoly board has 6 awesome tokens that include a scarf, bow-tie, screwdriver, celery, recorder and umbrella. Monopoly may be a game that a lot of people love to hate, but you can’t deny how fantastic it feels when you’re finally winning.
Breaking Bad deserves a kick-ass chess set. This one has 12 hand-drawn illustrations that separate the “good guys” from the “bad guys”. (Quotation marks are necessary when it comes to this show.) The custom board squares that are filled with chemical symbols come straight from the show’s opening and it helps set the mood. We know it’s tempting to pull a Heisenberg, but before you do anything reckless, try and solve your territory disputes with a game of chess first.
We love Monopoly so much that we just had to feature it twice. With Monopoly’s Adventure Time edition, you get to live in the Land of Ooo and visit places like the Fire Kingdom. Who needs boring hotels and apartments when you can have tree houses and castles?!
Not just anyone can claim to be a hardcore Whovian.
