Co-Optimus 2011 Holiday Buyer’s Guide – “Everything Else” Edition
As we conclude our week full of Holiday Gift Guides, we move away from the controller for a bit. There are plenty of non-game items out there that will make any gamer happy. Whether your giftee prefers Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii, or the Sinclair Spectrum, we think you’ll find our list of twelve board games, toys, and accessories a perfect non-game gift for any fan of co-op.
Each year, I try to work in a theme of some sort to my holiday guides. 2011 is no different, and this time around we’ve got an adaptation of everyone’s favorite carol they don’t remember all the words to: The Twelve Days of Christmas! In the interest of fairness and political correctness, we will dub this interpretation “The Twelve Days of Generic Winter Holiday”. Rolls right off the tongue, doesn’t it? We’re going to skip to the last verse in order to give my Ctrl, C, and V keys a break.
You are likely to get very tired over the next month or so. Dashing through the snow, from a Christmas program here, or a staff party there, might wear you down. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a comfy bean bag to come home and flop down into? We reviewed the Sumo Couple, a ginormous deluxe model made for two recently, and were impressed. There are many other types available; something for anyone!
