Fandom Holiday Gift Guide
It's not secret we love our fandoms around here. From Marvel and Harry Potter to Zelda and Star Wars we geek out for it all. This gift guide features some favorites from our various fandoms.
Gamers Gift Guide
The big one right now is Spider-Man: Miles Morales for the Ps4 and Ps5. This is a must have game for any Marvel fan. A war for control of Marvel's new York has broken out between a devious Energy Corporation and a high-tech criminal army. Miles must learn the cost of becoming a hero and decide what he must sacrifice for the greater good.
Seriously, the graphics are sick and you get to play as Miles. It doesn't get any better.
Coming this week from Nintendo is the highly anticipated Legend of Zelda Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Experience the events of the Great Calamity 100 years before the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. If you're a Link fan this is a must. You can download a trial version now that will carry over into the game if you have your Nintendo network setup properly.
You can't play this one without a Nintendo Switch. Either the Switch or Switch Lite is going to be on the wishlists this year. Not only do gamers have the new Zelda game but Animal Crossing New Horizons is still as popular as ever.
I almost didn't include this one because it gets a lot of hate online. Marvel Avengers is a unique take on these iconic Super Heroes, including Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor. Players can unlock powerful skills and new gear to build your ideal version of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
TBH the game is fun to play, when it works. Unfortunately it has been plagued with bugs from the start but the team continues to push patch releases. If your kids are Marvel fans though they will enjoy this one plus they most likely won't notice the bugs like adults do.
Funko Gift Guide
Can you even be into fandoms without also being a Funko fan? I don't think so. You could seriously do all your holiday shopping just with Funko and Funko Games.
In Funko Games The Haunted Mansion Disney’s beloved The Haunted Mansion comes to
life death in this hauntingly fun family board game! Explore all the classic rooms of the ghost-infested manor, from the festivities-filled Ballroom to the Attic and out to the Graveyard and beyond in search of spirits. Beware, though, of the Hitchhiking Ghosts, who are notorious for following you home as that may spell your doom in the end!
Something Wild puts a new twist on family game nights with six different Disney-themed sets featuring adorable figures of our favorite characters. The more sets you collect the more fun there is to be had by the whole fam!
Power cards add in a fun twist as do the Pops which aren't just adorable they can help you win the game too. Play numbered and colored character cards to make sets and runs.

Marvel Battleworld is the perfect game for kids to unleash their inner hero. Playing solo or with others, they have to come up with strategies to defeat the villains, rescue the heroes, and ultimately show Thanos who is boss. Choose from the Mega Pack or Battle Balls to get your game on.
