Circa Baseball. This is a miniature pinball-style game, whose box can be ordered to display the logo of Dadís favorite team. Priced about $34.95, or $44.95 with logo.

Dread Pirate Bookshelf Edition. The gameís wooden book-shaped box includes cast-metal pirates, a cloth treasure map, and the game is all about desert islands, buried treasure, treacherous seas and sharks. Priced at about $49.95.

All are available from Barnes & Noble. More information online at
