If you have ever seen the 1983 film, WarGames, you know one of the memorable lines from the computer Joshua was “Shall We Play A Game?” and that is a good quote for the February 2015 Loot Crate. This crate dealt with all things related to playing. I’m sure most gamer’s are fans of this crate and I myself loved it.
Let’s get to the review:
The first thing up that I looked at was the DIY mini munny. This is a really cool things to have. First off, i’m a Disney Vinylmation collector, so these little figures I just think are so cool. With this one, you can decorate it to go along with any theme you can think of. It comes with markers to decorate it, but you can use any paint, stickers or whatever you can think of. A great DIY for someone who wants to create something on a 3D image.
Next up was a New York Times bestselling book, Ready Player One. This book is a thrilling sci-fi adventure that is set in the not too distant future. The book, which is being turned into a film, has been hailed as Willy Wonka meets The Matrix. The book takes you to a dark society whose unlikely hero’s race to uncover the secrets and power of a virtual utopia shaped by the pop-culture geeks of the past.
Here we have an Loot Crate exclusive. This SUPERFIGHT card game from SKYBOUND Games, is a fast paced card game that puts Super Heroes up against Super Villains. The results this game comes out with are hilarious and a great game to play at a party.
Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock (R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy). Ok so this game doesn’t include the Lizard or Spock, but I wanted to some how pay homage to Leonard Nimoy after his passing.
This velvet bag includes 2 dice that allow you to play the classic Rock, Paper Scissors game, that kids of all ages have played for decades. This game is said to date back possibly 2,000 years to China. Either way, it’s the simplest of games for 2 people to compete against one another. Rather than use the traditional hand gestures, now players can roll the dice and see who can win the best out of 3 games.
I finally have a HEX Bug. This mechanical bug can freak out anyone who comes in contact with it. Not only can it scurry across the floor, but if it gets turned upside down, it can flip itself back over. This could be the early from of Ultron, Avengers better be on the look out.
This mini poster brings back SO many memories for me. Growing up a child of the 80’s, I had an Atari system. I played the games like Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Pitfall and the classic Yars Revenge to name just a few. There is no game that stands out more in my memory than Pac-Man. Before he got married and had Jr., Pac-Man chased after the 4 ghosts. Eating his power pellets and consuming the ghosts when they were blinking. This mini poster is a great image to frame and hang up. I promise, if you or your friends are familiar with the 80’s gaming, you will love this.
