It includes a $10 credit to ShirtPunch and their new e-store – the codes are available to the first reader to use them!


NES Ugly Holiday Shirt – Value $15?

I LOVE this month’s shirt! We’ve been receiving so many “Ugly Holiday” t-shirts, but I think this is my favorite. I’m a big fan of the “Now You’re Playing With Power” slogan being front and center!


Diablo 3: Book Of Cain – Value $20

The big ticket item of the month is Diablo 3’s Book Of Cain.


This was published in 2011. From Amazon:

Since the dawn of time, the Eternal Conflict has raged between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells. If the Prophecy of the End Days holds true, mankind will soon find itself trapped in the middle of this never-ending war. Here renowned scholar Deckard Cain has combined excerpts, illustrations, and firsthand knowledge to pen a history of the world of Sanctuary. His writings depict the insidious Prime Evils (Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal), shed light on Tyrael and the other archangels of the Angiris Council, and illuminate humanity’s hope and enduring heroism in the face of overwhelming terror. Revealed also are the untold mysteries, from the origins of mortals and the secrets of the nephalem to the gathering darkness of the End of Days. So take heed, dear reader, and bear witness to the truths that lie within.




The back cover had an envelope that stored a map.


This is a great book for Diablo 3 fans!


Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Shot Glasses – Value $15?

The next item was an exclusive – this is a set of 4 shot glasses featuring the latest Call of Duty – Infinite Warfare.


Master Sword Tea Infuser – Value $10?

The next exclusive item if for the tea and Zelda lover!



This little silicon sword opens up for your loose-leaf tea.


Hang it over your mug to brew the tea of your choice!


Pac-Man Lanyard – Value $5-10

This isn’t an exclusive item, but I couldn’t find the exact match online.


It has a clip for you to easily remove the item you’re hanging from the lanyard without removing it from your neck.

Verdict: I thought this was a decent month for Arcade Block – but I say that as person who isn’t a fan of the Diablo series. If I was, this is probably out of the park – since the book is really cool. The infuser and the shirt were hits for me, though, and both item that I will use!

  1. This box was a big hit for me! Signed up with the BF deal making it that much sweeter! The shirt is by far my favorite ugly Christmas sweater tee EVER, the diffuser is awesome and will be used daily at work, the shot glasses are being gifted to my brother in law, the Diablo book gifted to my brother and the lanyard to a friend! So pleased with this box!!

  2. Thanks so much for the shirt punch code!! I got an amazing Hufflepuff shirt! Now I can proudly represent my house! 😉

    Also, that tea infuser is pretty epic!

  3. I love this box :-D, but 9.50 shipping. Hmm. Seems excessive to me.

    • Nerd Block is a Canadian company, so shipping is a bit more than normal for US subscribers.

  4. Love the shirt. too bad I cancelled 🙁
