Warning - Spoilers below if you haven't received your block and want to be surprised - turn back now!
Being a huge fan of both Geek & Sundry and table top gaming, I was pretty excited when the themed box finally arrived at my door. Note: This was also my first box from Nerd Block.
So lets take a look at what was inside:
- International Tabletop Day T-Shirt
- Funko Legacy Magic the Gathering Action Figure (I received Liliana Vess)
- No Survivors Note Pad
- Felicia Day "Embrace Your Weird" Pencils
- Geek and Sundry Bumper Sticker
- Dungeons and Dragons Comic Book
- Wil Wheaton's D6
- Geek & Sundry Tabletop Day themed playing cards
- Geek & Sundry RPG Player tokens w/ Bag
Verdict? I'm actually pretty disappointed with this box. The cost on this box was 39.95 plus shipping, which brought the total investment to almost $50. I have a hard time finding anywhere near that value from this box.
The t-shirt isn't a high quality shirt. It's just your standard, heavy weight, cotton. I would have much preferred a Funko POP to the legacy figure. This particular figure barely sell for $5 on eBay. Didn't really need another set of playing cards. The tokens, comic, and notepad are ok, and rest of the items are just meh.
Being as this was a tabletop day box, I was expecting more game type stuff. Most of this is just game adjacent swag. They could have included a card game like Flux for the cost of the figure. Or even some of the items they include in the tabletop day kit they shipped to retailers last year.
Well, lesson learned here. I won't be picking up any other Nerd Blocks anytime soon. Hopefully you will find more value in your box than I did.
