It seems that everything’s ‘gamified’ these days, even weddings. This Xbox 360 wedding cake caught our eye when it cropped up on Tumblr.

It leaves me wondering if a few marriages could be saved if spouses could win points and badges as part of wedded life: ‘Anniversary Remembered!’, ‘Did the washing up for once’, and ‘Actually listened to the other’s dull anecdotes from work’ would probably be particularly hard-won achievements.
