English Pub Cribbage Game
English Pub Cribbage Game
(Based on 3 reviews)
Category: Kids/Toys and Games/All Games
The only card game that can be legally played for money in English pubs, cribbage evolved from a shipboard game called noddy. It was one of the few games that could be played on the rolling seas, as it used pegs and holes that could be carved directly into a sailor's bunk. A 17th-century British poet made cribbage popular in English courts, where he distributed packs of marked cards to the aristocracy, inevitably beat them out of tidy sums, and managed to gamble his way to a $7 million contribution to King Charles I's army. Mahogany-stained three-fold case includes cards, pegs, and rule book.

Woodcut Tree of Life Puzzle
Woodcut Tree of Life Puzzle
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Kids/Toys and Games/All Toys

Many cultures and religious across the globe have used the "tree of life" as a way to represent the interconnectedness of all life on the planet. In ancient Armenia, the tree was not only a religious symbol, but was also carved on soldier's armor. The Chinese tree of life typically depicts a dragon and a phoenix, symbols of immortality and rebirth. In Christianity, the tree of life appears in the book of Genesis, where it remains in the garden of Eden, a symbol of humanity free from the concept of original sin. The idea of the tree of life was also used by Charles Darwin to illustrate the interconnectedness of all life forms.

Luminescent LED Matrix
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Kids/Toys and Games/All Toys

“Just over a century after the famous “War of Currents” between inventors Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla, incandescent lights are virtually obsolete,” wrote Drew Hendricks on National Geographic’s NewsWatch blog in November 2012 [link]. They’re slowly being phased out, and what’s taking their place are LEDs—light emitting diodes that can use a tenth of the energy of incandescents. But LEDs aren’t only an energy-saving green alternative to incandescent and fluorescent lights. They can also evoke futuristic, gadgety fun.
