Munchkin - $25

Munchkin is an amazing game for groups.  Difficult to learn, but addicting once you do.  

Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin can reduce any roleplaying group to hysteria. And, while they're laughing, you can steal their stuff.

#94 - Watch Case - $18

I have an eight-watch watchcase. It was very expensive. I love it.

This one is just as nice. It holds ten watches. It is not expensive.

#92 -Timex T2p143 Weekender Slip Thru Watch

I wear a Timex chronograph that looks extremely similar to this one. It was well over $100 and is not made anymore. This would be a nice substitute if mine ever failed. It is currently just over $50, but goes on sale often. Keep an eye out for it.

#85 - Woodeze Black Rock Powder Co Wood Stove Firestarter Stick And Crate Box

br />
"Atop Wiley Coyote’s Christmas list, these fire starters are shaped like sticks of dynamite and come packed in a rugged cedar chest. Whoever makes a comment about fire starters constituting cheating gets a punch to the side of the head-this is a gift that’s simply fun to give and fun to receive. Go with it."

#84 - Panacea 15251 Canvas Log Tote, Black

"If you’re a man who loves to make and sit by a roaring blaze in the fireplace, or in other words, if you’re a man, you need a nice carrier to bring in the loads of logs needed to keep your fire roaring. Consider this one from Panacea It’s made with tough “fire hose” canvas and reinforced leather handles. And it’s nice and big, so bark and other debris don’t get trailed into your house."

#83 - Timex Men's "Expedition Scout" Watch

"Military field watches are all the rage among heritage menswear junkies. They’re supposed to look like the field watches issued to soldiers during the first half of the 20th century. Timex has taken advantage of this fad by issuing J.Crew “military” watches that sell for $150 . But here’s the thing. Timex makes a very similar field watch for just $25. It just doesn’t have the fancy pants J.Crew label attached to it. If you’re looking for a simple, yet handsome-looking watch, but can’t bear the thought of having your wife fork over $150 for it, consider the Timex Camper or Timex Expedition. Both are under $30, and they tell time just like the $150 version."
