I am a game-a-holic. I love games of (almost) all kinds. And I could play games all day. Literally. I am the type of person who spends four hours playing a game of Risk or Monopoly and then is sad because no one wants to play another round. This past weekend in Sacramento was all about games; Mario Party, then a wild goose chase for an Acquire set, then a nice two day Risk game. Steve picked up a Connect Four set at one of the Targets we hit up and we've been at that since we've been home (though, I must admit it's not one of my favorites, but it's growing on me). Anyway, I've got games on the brain now, so I was inspired to share some of my favorite game inspired etsy finds with you. This necklace from crimsonking is made from a 60s era Clue piece. Col. Mustard in the library with the revolver...

There are so many people on etsy using scrabble tiles to make jewelry, so it's refreshing to see littletilegnome using them to make lovely coasters. These would also be great for an impromptu game of Boggle, though I guess you'd only be able to play once.
I'm not very good at chess, but I wouldn't mind pretending that I am in this cool acrylic necklace from PaisleyChainsaw.
Here's a great little (5.5" by 5.5") clock from one of my favorite shop, IMOTIME, made from one of my all time favorite games, Sorry!

I absolutely love these pendants by prettytheory. Can you believe they're made out of game boards? (Scrabble on the left, Parcheesi on the right.)

A nice black leather dice cup from BeasBargains, perfect for Yatzhee or Perquacky.

Man, gathering these cool finds is making me itch for a game night!
