Welcome to Board Games Week!


Hey-o Nerdship. We’ve arrived at another wonderful theme week here on Nerds and Nomsense. This time we are dedicating a week entirely to board and card games. From the old standbys to quirky new indie games, we will be bringing you daily doses of awesomeness straight to your computer screens. We’ve got two extra special DIYs and a few of our favorite games in spotlight and maybe even a recipe or two. Oh, and on Friday we will be hosting an online hangout-party-thing where we’ll be playing Cards Against Humanity, but more on that in a second.

Since it’s early, we’ve decided to be nice and give you a little sneak peek into one of our bigger DIY board game builds for the week. We are working on a fantastic DIY build of our version of Monopoly. We’ve build the game board, pieces, cards, etc… and we will show you how to do it as well.


For additional sneak peeks of what we’ve got in store this week (as well as for the foreseeable future) be sure to hop on over to our Instagram and click the Follow button.

Since this whole week is dedicated to board and card games we would like to hear back from YOU, dearest Nerdship! We want to know what your favorite games are? Favorite scenes from TV and movies that feature / center around board/card games. Random memories. You know… the usual. We love hearing back from you, so don’t be afraid to let us know what you’re pondering! 

For the hangout on Friday, we’ve created an event on our Facebook page. Be sure to pop on over there and read up on the details and join us if you’d like. cahhangout_nerdsandnomsense

More Blog News

... you're already here and we like spilling beans.

We’ve got several things that will be happening in the next few weeks on Nerds and Nomsense. We will be continuing our Spooky Sunday Halloween tutorials with TWO tutorials this week. One will be inspired by Neil Gaiman and the other will be showing you how to recreate a look from the hit TV show, Dominion. If you have a request for a tutorial that you would like to see, don’t be shy. Let us know in the comments or give us a shout out on Twitter / Instagram / Facebook.

Next week we will be hosting another awesome giveaway/sweepstakes in part with one of our next Inkodye DIYs. If you’d like to see one of the two prizes, just take a gander to the image below:

This was supposed to go live today but thanks to the flu, things are moving a bit slower than normal. We figured that with all the excitement of this week’s theme week AND an unrelated giveaway would be a bit too much. The more you know…

Our Etsy Storefront re-opening will be pushed back until October 1st. Rather than add a bit at a time we’ve decided to launch everything all at once. We’ll be posting several pieces of nerdy art, jewelry, and threads.  This is partly due to the fact that our little blog gnomes have been super busy, please bear with us.

We also wanted to let those with awesome, nerdy businesses know that we are now publicly accepting inquires for partnerships and other sponsored posts (giveaways/reviews/etc). If you would like to know more, please visit our P.R. and Sponsorship Info page. 

And that’s what we’ve got for now. As always, Nerdship, KEEP IT NERDY.
