    Looking for Christmas cards that are a little *ahem* different this year?

    On Pinterest we’ve been searching for alternative Christmas Cards – the funny, rude, clever, sweary, geeky and unique! How about sending your friends a card with Shane McGowan on the front instead of Santa this year? We will be adding to the board up until Christmas so why not give us a follow? Some of these are of course not safe for work / kids / family.

  4. Channel Surfing TV Bingo Game – Printable party game that uses your television!

    March 9, 2016 by Faffy Tea

    We have a new product on Etsy – A Channel Surfing Bingo game!

    Printable Party Bingo

    This fun party game has printable bingo sheets for up to 12 players/teams of all ages. Surf through the channels of your TV so that players can try to spot items from their bingo sheets on the television screen! Items can be spotted in TV shows, commercials, news, children’s television, shopping channels… anywhere and everywhere.

    Stay on each channel for 5-10 seconds, and cycle through the channels as many times as is needed for somebody to win!

    Normal Bingo rules apply – so the first player to complete a row on their sheet wins a small prize, and then everyone plays again to try and get a Full House (all items on their sheet) and wins the whole game.
