This new release combines the mischievousness and unpredictability of “Cards Against Humanity” with the sardonic wit of “Deadpool.” Pegged for “mature audiences” (according to the manufacturer), the game pits players against their friends to see who can write the best caption for Deadpool’s compromising positions. The player with the funniest or most creative description wins. Purchase: $20.95 on Amazon.com.

6. Star Lord’s Walkman

Here’s a blast from the past that captures the retro appeal of an old Sony Walkman, with the audio and recording capabilities you want in 2018. This Star Lord’s Walkman is actually a mini speaker, and features a standard 1/4″ audio jack that you can connect to your phone or MP3 player to blast your tunes. You can also record new audio (including voice distortion) to the device itself, with up to three minutes of playback. Though you can’t actually play cassettes in this Walkman, the song, “Come a Little Bit Closer” (from 60s rockers Jay and the Americans) comes pre-loaded. Purchase: $39.99 on ThinkGeek.com.
