With their sleek design, you can wear them anywhere, from lounging around your house to going on a date with your Kaidan (or any of the other romance options).

Monopoly: Mass Effect N7 Collector’s Edition Board Game
Who doesn’t love a classic game of Monopoly? Of course, regular Monopoly can sometimes get a little monotonous, so why not spruce it up with your favorite video game? Mass Effect Monopoly is here to breathe life back into this old game. With a themed board, pieces, and cards, it will be sure to be a much more entertaining experience than regular Monopoly.

Garrus is a fan favorite among Mass Effect lovers, and what could be better than having this precious little version of him sitting on your desk? You’ll probably want to end up collecting all of the other adorable versions of the Mass Effect characters, from Shepard and Miranda, to Tali and Grunt. They’re too cute to resist! I want to throw all my money at them.

Available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, this award-winning sci-fi trilogy is one of the greatest ever created. Filled with beautiful artwork, a memorable story, exciting gameplay, and characters who you’ll be guaranteed to fall in love with, Mass Effect is a necessary experience for all gamers. If you don’t own the complete Mass Effect trilogy or haven’t yet played it, you’ll want to make sure you buy it in time for Mass Effect Andromeda, coming out next year.
You can also always buy it as a gift for the sad soul in your life who’s never experienced it; they’ll thank you for it.
Hopefully, these suggestions help you have a happy, fun, N7 Day! And don’t worry, every day can be N7 Day, just pop in Mass Effect and take off on the greatest adventure the galaxy has to offer. Too bad there’s not a Kaidan in real life…I’m just kidding. We’re all into Garrus. Who can resist the scales? In all seriousness, Mass Effect is not a series you want to miss out on.
