While traveling, playing games is good way to kill time and have fun. But how will you bring all your favorite games with you? Well, you use this sleek looking alligator embossed game set. Of course.
We're not really sure if the poker, dice, craps, and dominos stuff is in there when you order it (the prize suggests it does), but you can buy them separately anyway. It's convenient to have these classics in one box, right? We're buying.
Price: EUR 680

FEW VS JENNIFER LAWRENCE
NO MORE HUNGER
Have you seen the movie The Hunger Games? No? then you're probably not aware of the existence of Jennifer Lawrence. That's too bad, because we think she could easily be the next best thing in Hollywood.
THE 10 MOVIES
THAT WILL MAKE 2013
What's the first thing you do when you book a flight for your next travel destination? A list of things you need to pack maybe? We also make a list, but it's not your average list. It's a list of all the movies we want to see on our iPad.
So, it won't come as a surprise that we're very into movies. Last night was Oscar night and we were happy to find out some of our favorites took home the golden statues (Lawrence, Lewis, Affleck). For us, Oscar night is not only a night to celebrate the best movies of the previous year, it's also the conclusion of a complete year of movies. 2012 is a wrap and it's time to look forward to what 2013 has to offer. And we couldn't think of a better idea then create a top 10 list of movies we are looking forward to right now. Let's begin!
1. Pacific Rim (July 2013)
Guillermo del Toro's newest movie. Need we say more? Of course we do. And we'll start with saying we just love Del Toro's work (El laberinto del fauno, Hellboy 1 & 2). We were also completely bummed out to hear he dropped out of the Hobbit project because we were very curious what he would have done with it. Anyway. Pacific Rim is his latest project en it features a bad ass Idris Elba who controls a squad of soldiers who operate huge robots to fight giant monsters that threaten to destroy planet earth. Jep, sounds pretty nice right? Well, it looks nice also. Click here for the trailer.
2. Man of steel (June 2013)
Superman has always been our least favorite superhero. We don't really know why, but we've always been more of a Spiderman/Batman type. But, things might be changing soon. A new Super man is coming our way and it's looking ridiculously sweet. The flick is directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen, Sucker Punch) so visually we're in pole position. If you add up the fact that Christopher Nolan has interfered with the whole project (writing/producing) there's gold coming to your local cinema this year. Click here for the trailer.
3. Elysium (August 2013)
Director Neil Blomkamp (District 9) is back. The former protégé from Peter Jackson is on fire. His new Elysium movie has Matt Damon in the lead and is set in the year 2159. The wealthy live in space and the poor on a ruined Earth. Damon goes 'Green Zone' and might think of something that brings back balance on planet Earth. Everything for this movie looks promising. We haven't seen anything yet but we have a naturally weakness for good science fiction. Hopefully this one turns out great!
4. Hobbit part II (December 2013)
We've been long time fans of everything that surrounds The Lord of the Rings. We've read it all. The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings… Even the letters that JRR Tolkien left his sons. But it started all at the Hobbit when we were kids. Past December we were flabbergasted when we saw the first installment. It wasn't as good as we hoped it would be, but we enjoyed it still very much. That's why we're already looking forward to december this year, just so we can see Bilbo meeting Beorn and King Thranduil of Mirkwood.
5. Gravity (October 2013)
Gravity is a movie on this list that might come as a surprise to you. As we've mentioned before, we're pretty into science fiction. Well, imagine George Clooney and Sandra Bullock all alone in outer space trying to fix their crashed spaceship and return to earth. Directed by Alfonso Cuaron and that names probably doesn't ring a bell right away. He is the man who debuted his career with the very intense Children of Men movie. This one is going to be big. Oscar material.
6. Star Trek Into Darkness (May/June 2013)
J.J. Abrams is big news right now. He just signed to do a whole set of new Star Wars movies and he has proven that he can do it with the very first Star Trek movie. We never liked Spock and all of his trekkie followers. But we did love the latest Star Trek movie and instantly fell in love with everything that surrounds the USS Enterprise (thank you for Zoe Zaldana). Heck it even made us longing for more. Click here for the trailer.
7. Anchorman II (December 2013)
We've gotta admit. We saw Anchorman for the first time a few weeks ago. Yes, shame on us, we know. And yes, we loved it. Just like everyone else. The announcement of a second installment Ron Burgendry himself did at Conan's late night show was hilarious. The first movie was hilarious. The complete cast is returning (which is hilarious)… We think this one is going to be hilarious. Wanna bet? Click here to see the first teaser.
8. The Wolverine (July 2013)
Ever since the first X-Men movie arrived in cinemas everyone was screaming for a single Wolverine movie. Ever since the first X-Men movie was made producers and production companies have tried to make one. The time was never right though. And if the time was right, there's was no money. Or no director. Or no story. Well, in 2013 the movie is going to hit your local cinema and you're going to remember the time Logan pointed his adamantium claws against samurais in Japan.
9. Riddick (September 2013)
The Chronicles of Riddick was an ok movie. But we loved Pitch Black (also a Riddick movie). A pretty much bad ass Vin Diesel who protects a boy (actually a girl) from nasty aliens though everybody thought Diesel had no feelings. Doesn't sound that good but don't be mistaken. The movie rocks and that's why we're looking forward to this all new 'episode' in which Riddick fights a new species of aliens.
10. Hangover Part III
The wolf pack returns for the last installment of the Hangover movies. The first part changed the comedy movie landscape. The second wasn't that good (too much of the same) but because we slept in the 'Hangover' suite in the Lebua in Bangkok, we like that movie more then most people. Anyway. We think this third movie is going to be just us priceless as the first. Why we think this way? Don't know. It's a hunch.
The movies that didn't make it to the list... Iron Man 3, 300 Rise of an Empire, The Lone Ranger, Fast Six, Monsters University, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, A Most Wanted Man and Nymphomaniac.
FEW VS ROSIE JONES
TYPICAL PAGE 3 GIRL
We would like you to meet Miss Rosie Jones. She's your typical page three girl and normally we're not really into these kinda ladies. But, for Rosie we're willing to make an exception. Why? It's eyes we're telling ya.
FEW VS AMANDA ROADMEN
NEW IN THE VICTORIA SECRET FAMILY
We had never heard of Amanda Roadmen. Untill today. We came across her on the website Heavy and after we saw some pictures, we can't get her out of our mind.
PAIN & GAIN
We watch a shit load of movie trailers each week. Actually, we see them all. It’s not that often that we come across something we can’t really place. Pain & Gain is one of those movies. We want to love it so bad but something is holding us back…
FEW VS GEMMA MERNA
BRITISH BOOBY TV BABE
We would like you to meet Gemma Merna. This British bombshell is a 'booby TV babe' from the UK and although that sounds a bit slutty, we still are very much in digital love with this soon to be super model.
FEW VS STACEY HANNANT
LOOKS FREAKIN' SEXY
Do we have a thing for blondes? Could be. But we think that if the color of Stacey Hannant's hair was other then blonde, she would still appear on Few vs Many one way or the other.
What can we tell about this Brittain beauty... Well she's young. Only 19 years old which makes this post barely legal. She became famous after she was holding round-cards for BAMMA alongside Zoe James and Georgia Graham, which you probably don't know anyway. So... You like what you see? Let her know throught Twitter if you dare.

THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY
One of the most famous books ever written is coming to the big screen. In 3 months hobbits will return to your local cinema because director Peter Jackson took the libirty to adapt J.R.R. Tolkien's first novel The Hobbit. And we can't wait to see it!
FEW VS KATE UPTON
BLOWING BUBBLES IN YOUR UNDERWEAR...
It’s wednesdat again! And that means… Well? It means we’re going to try and make you happy with a beautiful set of pictures. This time we would like you to meet Kate Upton.
Kate is ,as we speak, working hard launching her modelling career. Which is impressive because it isn’t to long ago she had her famous breakthrough (cover Sports Illustrated). After that her career went into a tailspin. She became Esquire’s ‘The Woman Of The Summer’ she’s on the Victoria Secret radar.
All of that is good news, we guess. Accept her age. It scared us a little bit. She is only 19 years old. We where thinking something around 25. But… 19 it is. And that makes it barely Legal. Anyway. The pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!
Price: Not applicable

FEW VS KEELEY HAZELL
Have you heard about Keeley Hazell? You have, do you? We know you have. She's one of Britain's top models and we're proud to present to you the few pictures we could find without showing too much nudity.
That's good news right? Well, there's more! Keeley Hazell is single. The woman we posted previously we're all taken by boyfriends or were married. Keeley isn't. She is yours for the taking. How you get in touch with her? We don't know, be creative...

FEW VS MIRANDA KERR
PHOTOSHOOT BY CHRIS COLLS
Photographer Chris Colls had some 'alone time' with top model Miranda Kerr and beneath is the resulst of that get-together. And it makes us even a bit more happy then we already were. Curious?
Is there something you need to know about Miranda Kerr, before you start your day dream ? Well, that's up to you of course. We checked Wikipedia and they tell us that she's from Australia. That she is 29 years old and part of Victoria Secret's Angels since 2006. Last year she married famous actor Orlando Bloom and they have a son.

MOVIE UPDATE 2012-23
PREMIUM RUSH, THE BOURNE LEGACY, LES MISERABLES
Finally we had a decent week moviewise. 2 pretty big ones and another all new trailer of Premium Rush. We already saw some footage in a early teaser and it's fully packed with action. We can't wait.
GAME OF THRONES
GIVEAWAY: SEASON 1 VERY SPECIAL EDITION
We can write this review/giveaway in two different ways. There are those who have read the books, and those who haven’t. We are among those who haven’t read any of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy novels, so that would be the most logical way to start this article.
Yes, you read it right. This is not only our review of the critaclly aclaimed television series but it’s also a giveaway. HBO was so kind to send us an extreme special edition of the first season which we can give away to you.
First we’ll explain what Game of Thrones is all about. The TV series follows the multiple storylines of the A Song of Ice and Fire books set in the Seven Kingdoms of the mythical land of Westeros. Robert Baratheon, King of Westeros, demands that his old friend Lord Stark of Winterfel becomes Hand of the King, which is the highest official. Stark is warned that the previous Hand was assassinated but he accepts anyway. Meanwhile the Queen's family, the Lannisters, are plotting to take over power. Then there’s the previous ruling family the Targaryens. They were defeated and banished but are also scheming to regain the throne. The other houses (Greyjoy, Tully, Arryn and Tyrell) have to take sides and this will lead to a full-scale war. But that’s not all. High in the north, a very ancient evil awakens. In the south there’s a war and political confusion. This way the men of the Night’s Watch – who guard the high wall in the north - are all that stands between the people who are fighting a war amonst themselves and the terrible icy horrors that lie beyond.
Before we watched the very first episode we had our doubts if this was something we would dig. We like fantasy. We also like the medievel setting with knights, castles and princes. But we also read that it’s a very political series and they say some episodes would be a bit slow. We’re bored easily, so that was really our only fear.
After we watched the first episode we dropped the boredom thing in the trash can. Wow. Game of Thrones grabbed us by the throat and it’s still holding on firmly. We’re hooked. Ever since we watched that first episode we’ve seen everything that has anything to do with Game of Thrones - except the books, because we don’t want them to spoil it for us.
Everything works in this first season. The characters are scary, true and real. This is something that’s really hard. Most of the cast are not very famous so a big compliment for the casting director. The special effects are well done. It’s nothing mind-blowing but that’s not really necessary except for maybe the last episode.
The last TV series that was this good was Band of Brothers. The amount of love that series created for the characters was unheard of. We didn’t think any series would ever be better. Well, guess again. Game of Thrones is twice as good as Band of Brothers. There are no flaws. At all. We’re hooked. And we bet you will be to. Hopefully they can keep this up in the second and third seasons.
You want this very special edition of the first season of Game of Thrones on DVD (which is not for sale anywhere)? This is what you need to do:
- Go to our Facebook page and like it!
- Leave a comment beneath this article or on our Facebook page in which you tell us why you should have this first season of Game of Thrones and not someone else.
- Of course you're free to recommend this to friends by sharing this giveawat any way you like, this is not necessary to win this competition though.
We have a winner! Ruben Mennes has won because, according to his Facebook comment, "he is the father of dragons, it's within my right to claim this price!". There is nothing left for us to say really.

FEW VS SARA JEAN UNDERWOOD
THANKS TO ESQUIRE
We're not sure if you know who Sara Jean Underwood is... What we do know is that you're likely to enjoy this next Few vs Many edition and afterwards are familiar with misses Underwood.
In the US she became famous for being Playboy's Playmate of the year (2007). Sorry, we're not posting those pictures (your parents must be able to read this). Next to that she also does a bit of movie and television work, but that's not really spectacular - not yet - What is spectacular, is the photoshoot she had with Esquire magazine.
Please, let her guide you through her place. You'll enjoy. We bet.

MOVIE UPDATE 2012-22
THE GREAT GATSBY, THE MASTER, THE APPARITION
The last few days were a bit disappointing. There were not that many new trailers to look at. 1 big one, and 2 smaller ones that could become big movies. We're not sure about that. The big one is the Great Gatsby with Leonardo Dicaprio, directed by Baz Luhrman. Definitely one to look forward to.
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
The lovely people at Sony Pictures send us a Blu-ray copy of the movie The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It's one of the best movies of 2011 and we urge you to go see it as soon as possible.
TOTW: GUSTTAVO LIMA
We're not really proud of the fact that Gusttavo Lima is our Track Of The Week. But we are just unable to keep this Balaba song out of our heads. In a good way that is. Let's just blame the weather...
FEW VS ELIZA DUSHKU
THANK YOU FHM
We don't really like FHM. Except for their taste of woman. Some time ago they had this special around Eliza Dushku. We think you guys (and girls) don't know who that is... Well then, let's find out, shall we?
Eliza is a 32 year old actress that never really got her big breaktrough in Hollywood. She participated in the highly succesful television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. After that she got some movie roles in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001)and Bring It On (2000). After that, we didn't hear from her anymore. Except in these kind of photoshoots, which isn't really a bad thing, is it?

MOVIE UPDATE 2012-21
SKYFALL, THE WORDS, THE GOOD DOCTOR
2 weeks ago we started this movie update column and the follow week we fucked up. But please give us a second chance. We'll keep it up this time. We promise. That being said. Let's talk about movie trailers. We've got three this week.
TOTW: KANY WEST
LOST IN THIS WORLD
Last week we where in London so we didn't post a new Track Of The Week. Sorry about that. This week we do! And it's the latest from Kanye West called Lost in this World.
