Anyone remember Pitfall? It's the 1982 Atari game where you had to navigate Harry through the jungle and across dangerous obstacles like crocodiles and scorpions. Well now you'll be able to tell which of your guests remembers the game, based on who pauses before crossing into your home with these Pitfall-inspired 8-bit un-welcome mats.

More subtle than the doormat scale at trying to keep people away from your door, these Pitfall mats feature two of the treacherous 8-bit villains from the Atari game.

The toughest part is picking your favorite. The rectangular Scorpion Doormat looks almost abstract and reminds us of a QR Code. While the Croc Doormat is cool because it takes on the shape of a pixelated pond, making it look like a part of the game just appeared in front of your threshold.

Whichever one you choose, head over to Meninos.com to grab it for $49.99. Or, you know, if you have two doors, get both!
