April 2015 Loot Crate Unboxing: Fantasy

What is Loot Crate?

Taken from the Loot Crate site, “Each month, Loot Crate™ ships a themed mystery box of the best geek, gaming, and pop culture gear to a subscriber base of over 100,000 Looters. We emphasize phenomenal support and content, and include gear from some of the most respected entertainment and consumer product companies in the world.” Loot Crate sells for $13.95 a month plus $6.00 shipping and handling. You can save money by subscribing for longer periods as well. This month’s theme was, Fantasy, which makes me think of epic quests, wizards and Dungeons & Dragons.

What’s in the Box?

This month’s box takes the form of a wooden table with map, sword and coins on it. The map looks to be in the same style as Game of Thrones. The small Goblin and cobwebs details are cool too.

This shirt is one my favorite items from this month Loot Crate. I’m a big fan of D&D and other pencil and paper RPGs. My friends are going to start up a new 5th edition game soon, and this shirt will go well with the campaign. 

In keeping with the fantasy theme, an inflatable crown, Harry Potter luggage tag and a D&D bow-tie were also included. I didn’t care for the crown since I don’t have a use for it. Maybe I will be able to use it for Halloween this year. The luggage tag is cool, might need to replace my Yoda tag I bought in Korea. I really like the D&D bow-tie but I don’t have a use for it at the moment. The design is unique with a fabric pattern is made up of D20’s and Dragons. I need to find more reasons to wear all the nerd formal wear I received from Loot Crate.

The Princess Bride themed playing cards are great. I have seen the Princess Bride once or twice when I was younger but this card set makes me want to watch it again. The illustrations are detailed and all the face cards are unique. I like to keep a deck of cards around just in case someone wants to play an impromptu poker game.

Since the first season I’ve been a huge fan of Game of Thrones. I haven’t read the books but I may need to since the TV show will start deviating from the source material. The Stark sigil USB drive is awesome but sadly it’s only holds 4 gb of data. If it was at least 32 gb it would have been perfect. I will still put it to good use since it will replace the other small drives that I have. The magnet set has cool designs with the house motto and sigil. These will look great on my refrigerator or on my desk. 

Final Thoughts

I believe this month’s crate was worth it. I would have preferred something from Lord of the Rings instead of Harry Potter but it’s not a deal breaker. The D&D shirt, and Game of Thrones items are my favorites this month. Hopefully next months crate is just as great as this one.
