This box came with a card detailing the items included. (I like that they show variations you may receive of certain items).
Batman Pacman Tee – Value $12?
This shirt is 100% Cotton and one of my husband’s favorite mashup tees he’s received in a while from subscription boxes. I also like that it isn’t a super bold color/design!
Retro Magazine “Best of Year 1” Issue #0 – Value $10
Space Invaders Soap on a Rope – Value $9
This mini mag was made for Geek Fuel subscribers. The emphasis is on retro games, which I love. I have memories of trying to get cartridges to work by blowing on them, shaking them (basically everything I’m sure you’re not supposed to do), so it was fun to see an article about the best tools for working with cartridges.
This soap on a rope is fun – we’ll probably use it as a gift!
(Geek Fuel also included a pin and sticker for Read Retro).
DC Comics Superhero Pint Glass – Value $7.50
Worms Downloadable Game w/ Gummies – Value $8
Subscribers will get one of 4 variations of the DC Comics pint glass: Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Batman, or a Mystery design.
The candy worms come with a unique code for a free download of the Worms game at SteamPowered. Looking at past boxes, it looks like a free game download seems to be consistent for all the boxes so far, so that’s something to keep in mind if you are thinking of subscribing.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $47. It isn’t my husband’s favorite box, but he’ll use about half the items and likely swap the rest. I’m not sure if Geek Fuel is the best fit for him, but we’ll give it another month or two to be sure!
