schoolofIDlogoOn this 7th Day of Geekmas, I present you with what may be the biggest Savings of the batch, though I cannot swear to it being the best value. On sale on Amazon, from The School of Interactive Design is a One Year Access bundle to their Gaming App Design course-ware. At a list price of $1199, they are currently offering the course a the price of $99 for the year. During that year, you get access to their training material, course-ware, digital assets, and software in order to make game app making something you can do without having to learn programming top to bottom. If you have someone you Christmas list who is interested in learning interactive app development, and/or making games, this may be the gift for them. There are a limited (though the page doesn’t say exactly HOW limited) number of slots available for this course, and the sale prices is only good through Midnight Christmas Eve. As gifts go, it is one this is one that has great potential to keep on giving.

I’ve not played most of these games, so I can’t give an honest review of them. Nor can I say anything positive or negative about Playfire, as the service is a new one on me. It comes recommended from PC Gamer Magazine, which is one of my go to sources for gaming news, and when I signed up I got my game right away.

It seems worth the effort to get a free game now, and the chance at such a cool free game by the middle of January, so I leave it up to you. I signed up, If I run into any issues I’ll report back.

The 6th Day of Geekmas

Exclusive Periodic Table of Elements Blanket

Periodic Table of Elements Blanket

Periodically, it gets cold around here. The solution is… Oh no.. I’m not going to do it. They guys at ThinkGeek do it for me so if you want that kind of humor they have it in spades.

Today’s Suggestion is their Exclusive Periodic Table of Elements Blanket, for $29.99 This blanket has the more common elements, up to 103 Lawrencium. It’s 100% Cotton and is 47″ X 63″, not to big but enough to keep you warm on the couch for movie night. It may also work as a wall hanging, to show off your smart side, but something more technical looking may be better serve you there, this has more of a casual feel to it. Still it’s causal smart. And I like Casual Smart.

As of this writing they are in-stock, so expedited shipping should get it in time for the holiday, but time is getting close so don’t drag your feet.
