A t-shirt that finally answers the question: What video games did folks play in ancient Greece?

I tried but failed to come up with a witty name for the game and system being used in the following t-shirt, designed by Esther Aarts. Any ideas?


Here's an up-close-and-personal view of Aarts' design, called "Classic Gamer," in case you can't make out all of the details in the image above:


Anyway, be the first on your block--or even town, depending on how large it is--to own one of these shirts by ordering one today at threadless.com.

Looks pretty good! If they don't charge a billion quid for delivery, maybe I'll pick one up :)

Perhaps "Pi Sigma II"? It's cute.

Let me know if you end up getting one, Simon! I'd get one myself, but I'm saving my cash for other things at the moment...

Bryan Ochalla said...

Oh, that's great Justin! Thanks :)

Grand Theft Chariot?

Ah, another great idea! Thanks, Balloonfighter :)

I want one! A little grumpy that it only comes in men's sizes. ARE YOU SAYING ALL GAMERS ARE MEN, THREADLESS? Hmph! Well, if I wanted to spring for one I wouldn't be fussed purchasing a men's size, but it's a little odd.

The more I look at it the more it bugs me how the "TV screen" is kind of slanted...

Bryan Ochalla said...

Yeah, I'm not sure why they wouldn't offer a women's size, too. A strange decision, IMO. Hopefully they'll change their minds after receiving some complaints about it.

As for the screen being slanted, it doesn't bother me but I definitely can understand why it could/would bother others!
