Some of the most iconic objects in the history of video games have to be the barrels that Donkey Kong tosses at Jumpman as he climbs girders to rescue his princess. Jumping over those barrels and smashing them with a sledgehammer were the key gameplay mechanics of Nintendo’s breakout arcade game.

If you drew a Venn diagram of gamers and coffee drinkers, I think you’d find there’s a pretty large intersection between the two groups. So what better way to store your coffee machine pods but in a game of Donkey Kong?
M.C. Escher’s art is pretty mindblowing. It always featured impossible staircases that go up or down forever depending on how your eyes see it. Donkey Kong is pretty amazing too, but for entirely different reasons that only a video game nerd can appreciate.
