One Up! is a word of art.

Thanks for wanting to smarten up! We hope you have as much fun selling our clever and original products as we've had making them – what started out as a "naive and quixotic" adventure has become, despite our sometimes laughable missteps, a successful and well-respected brand. Yikes!

Our eye-popping POP (point-of-purchase) will sell One Up! all by itself – just place it prominently on the counter and everyone will ask about it – guaranteed.





ONEUPMANSHIP is Monopoly for the 21st Century.

Don't stock the boring and typical backgammon and chess – ONEUPMANSHIP is the perfect gift for the family and friends who think they've already "won the game."

ONEUPMANSHIP is the 21st Century antidote to video game crack, and will teach everything the buddy entrepreneur or tycoon wannabe needs to know about making money, making friends/enemies, and influencing people. Seriously, it's an Ivy-League education in a big, black box.




The Old's Cool Education.

THE OFFICIAL OLD'S COOL EDUCATION is our attempt at a know-it-all guide to the really important things in life, and is filled with practical, old-school basics, some hero worship, and the art of living well.

One case is 10 x 3-packs of genius and fun and is the perfect anytime gentleman's gift: Father's Day, birthday, Christmas...




Why don't you Wise Up!

A case is one dozen excellent lessons in humility and frustration – a devilish bouquet of fun. And the shelf talker doesn't just start a conversation; it screams to be heard!
