Space Invader Playing Cards

Long before we were nicking cars and buying hookers in Grand Theft Auto, and way before the Fifa v Pro Evo war started we were busy entertaining ourselves with pixelated bad guys, baseball diamonds and space debris. We still get a sense of nostalgia with that stuff (which is why I bought an Atari off Ebay!) even though playing those games now really, really doesnt do it for us. In fact, most of our game playing has moved off the television screen and onto a poker table, which is why for the next lad’s night we’re dealing these Space Invaders Playing Cards. The standard characters and suits have been swapped out for the little dotted aliens we used to blast away when we were rocking Zubaz Pants. 8 euros from here
