These decorative DIY pillows come complete with sound effects to turn your living room sofa into a real-life game of minesweeper. You'll quickly find out which of your house guests are (arcade) gamers when they sit on the "safe" pillows. Plus, you'll hear the newbies from the kitchen when they crash and burn.

Using a little bit of crafty know-how and the guts from inside a teddy bear and greeting card, Instructables user BrittLiv created a set of throw pillows that mimic our favorite time-wasting game of Minesweeper.

Besides coming away with a set of graphic pillows with geek cred, these cushions come equipped with sound effects that might have your sofa "exploding" if somebody sits on the wrong square.

You can make your own by following BrittLiv's Minesweeper pillow patterns (just click on the photo below) and yanking an audio recording device from inside a greeting card or stuffed animal. Check out the instructions here.
