I was looking forward to this Loot Crate for a while because I knew it would be full of fun stuff that I could use over and over. Sometimes Loot Crate isn't my favorite because most of the stuff just sits on a shelf (while looking awesome, to be fair) but not necessarily functional items. This month's theme was PLAY so I knew there would be some games that we could play all the time.
I'm estimating the retail value of this a little bit because I can't find this exact size online anywhere - but I did find a slightly smaller one for $14.95 so I think that's fair. I like this design a lot! I'm not a huge Pac-Man fan but I really like the blueprint/cartridge idea and this will be going right onto my wall.
This is a Loot Crate exclusive so I can't be sure of the value, and it's also smaller than most that I can find online. It's a really cute idea though - I like that you can create your own figure. Although, I'm not terribly artistically inclined anymore so I don't think I can do much with this. The markers also don't work too well on this - the black marker actually dries fairly green and doesn't show up too well while drawing. You have to go over it several times, and then it kind of just wipes off. Anyway, I'll probably get more into this when I'm bored and hopefully what I've drawn on already will clean off to make way for new drawings.
I might actually be valuing this low because I used the value of a normal Superfight deck (one of the colored ones, not the core deck) but this is an exclusive deck just for Loot Crate subscribers. The box even says "The Loot Crate Deck" - which is pretty awesome. I flipped through the cards included and this seems like it will be a really fun game! If you like games like Apples-to-Apples or Cards Against Humanity - this is the game for you! My friends and I play CAH all the time, so I think this will be a really fun introduction! Eventually I'll have to get the core deck to add these to so a full game can be played with a lot of people.
I'm not sure if this has a retail value because so far, I haven't found many items in the game that cost money - but the game isn't out yet. This is a code to unlock an exclusive ship in the yet-to-be-released Firefly Online game. You can go install and create an account in The Cortex, the official companion (lol) app to the Firefly Online game. Then, once the actual game has been released, the ship will be ready for you to use! If you've seen the Loot Crate Firefly fan video, "The Verse", you have seen the Overland ship you can unlock. While I LOVE Firefly, I hadn't really looked into this game very much. Since getting this, I'm already level 81 and SO ready for the game to be released! *The ship on the card is not the ship you will unlock.
Ever since the Heroes/Villains crates last year, Loot Crate has been totally decking out the inside/outside of their boxes each month in keeping with that month's theme. It was pretty obvious that this month, they would transform the inside of their box into a gameboard! This game is a four-player challenge to fill your crate with 5 items before the other person. The back of the mini-mag has game pieces that you use on the gameboard.
The gameboard comes with instructions on how to use these Rock-Paper-Scissors dice to move your gamepiece along the board collecting the Crate items to win the game!
The dice sides depict the popular game of rock, paper, scissors and a velveteen bag so you won't lose them!
I read this book when it first came out and even participated in the Gunter contest back in 2012. If you hadn't heard of it, he actually created a real contest with real gates you had to find and get through by playing games online and it was the greatest thing I've ever been a part of in my life. I found and made it through all 3 gates and was one of very few people in the running to win Ernie's ACTUAL DELOREAN.
The total retail value of this box was almost $70.00! A really great value for a really great box.
