I have found so many things but it's prohibitive to list all with a link and picture at this point. In the interest of time will begin to list multiple things I found at one location (though other stores may carry them). If an idea appeals to you, you can check it out a little more on your own.
BEATLES Monopoly: I know they have million versions,
but this one is really worth a mention. The little pieces you play with are Maxwell's hammer, a walrus, etc... And it covers Apple and Abbey Road Studios plus every album released by the Beatles. Instead of real estate, you create your own private music anthology.
At Barnes and Noble and Boarders for $35 (they all offer card member discounts) but cheapest I've found is at Amazon for $26.95 CLICK HERE
Archival quality storage CD boxes ($27.95 per) and anti-corrosion CD holder Sleeves ($8.95 for set of 10). They too won't last forever, but these can help preserve them far longer. CLICK HERE for sleeves and you can find boxes, albums and many other great things photo and archival at www.exposuresonline.com
