Two bottles of Whiskey from the game of thrones johnny walker line

Johnny Walker

Need a delectable alcoholic beverage whilst you binge-watch Game of Thrones this festive season? Luckily for you, Johnny Walker has not one but two blended scotch options that are inspired by the hit HBO series. “A Song of Fire is rich and spicy, boasting flavors of subtle smoke from the peated malts of the Caol Ila distillery with an ABV of 40.8%. Inspired by the dragons of House Targaryen, feared for their fire breathing, the bottle design evokes a fiery setting with deep-red colors” whereas “A Song of Ice features single malts from Clynelish, one of Scotland’s most northern distilleries, and exudes a crisp, clean taste like the unforgiving force of ice that shapes mountains and stops rivers.

The new blend has an ABV of 40.2% and the bottle design evokes an icy setting with frosted blue and gray colors inspired by the North, known for its cold winters and frozen landscapes.” Both varieties cost $43 or you can buy a double pack for $86.

Arcade 1UP Cabinet

Arcade 1UP

For many of us having a real-life arcade cabinet in our house seems like a total pipe dream. But thanks to Arcade 1UP all of that’s changing. The company has been crafting smaller but still impressive cabinets for a couple of years now and we’re obsessed with this Marvel Super Heroes cabinet that features rad Art Adams Thanos art and three kickass games. The cabinet itself stands at around 4ft tall but if you want to make it a little higher you can also purchase a riser which brings it up to a solid 5ft! There are plenty of other game options too like Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter. You can currently grab the Marvel Super Heroes cabinet at Walmart for $249.99.

Star Wars Pinball Machine
Star Wars Pinball Machine from Stern

We always like to include some dream gifts on here and the Stern Pinball Star Wars The Pin machine is up there. It’s from Stern’s line of more affordable home Pinball machines so is a little cheaper than your standard professional type, but this awesome creation will still cost you $4500. It would make any games room complete and it’s got plenty of rad features that fans of the classic Star Wars pinball machines will recognize. “Stern’s new Star Wars™ Pin™ immerses players in the dynamic Star Wars galaxy.  The Pin™ has many features to provide players with an irresistible game experience.
