With only four more days to order 'till Christmas (as of this writing), a lot of folks are still seeking those last-minute gift ideas, and one sure-fire hit is some classic board games from my friends at Winning Moves Games. Having already enjoyed their reproduction of the classic Ouija Board through the Halloween Season, this winter we've been spending time with Classic Yahtzee, Classic "Popomatic" Trouble, and Classic Sorry! Officially licensed by Hasbro, these games are quality versions of the now-retro originals that many folks had as kids. In fact, the Yahtzee and Trouble are the exact versions that I had as a kid in the 1980s. The big hit here at Rock Father HQ? Oh yes, it's Trouble...

Holiday Gift Guide: The TETRIS LIGHT by Paladone

Tetris LightRecommended for Ages 8+, I'm filing The TETRIS LIGHT under my "For Grownups" section of the 2013 Holiday Gift Guide here on The Rock Father. This captivating discussion piece looks great here in my office, bringing Alexey Pajitnov's famously-addictive puzzle game into the real world. It's electrically-operated, so it's not for the little ones, but that probably won't stop them from wanting to give it a go. Just keep it out-of-reach, and enjoy the colorful glow of the Tetriminos by night!

While gamers eagerly await the arrival of the XBOX ONE and PLAYSTATION 4 next month, Chicago-based River West Brands is taking the DeLorean back to 1982 for inspiration, and relaunching a classic: ColecoVision. The owners of Coleco Holdings have partnered with AtGames to bring classic ColecoVision games to mobile, online, and retail. AtGames plans to add ColecoVision to it's classic console lineup that includes the Atari Flashback and Sega Genesis Classic as well.
