We maintain – or at least try to maintain – a big list of geeky subscription boxes. We love mailbox surprises, so the amount of them that we subscribe to ourselves continues to grow. This was our first Geek Fuel experience, and we are seriously impressed with the value vs the cost.
If you don’t know how this works, here you go: You pay Geek Fuel about $14-$18 a month, plus $6 shipping, depending on if you want to pay by the month or by the year. In exchange, they send you an awesome geek mystery box, every month. Easy, right? The boxes contain things like toys, downloadable games, mugs, candy, buttons, bobble-heads, geek soaps, posters – you get the idea. And they always include a t-shirt. Every month is different, and you never know what you’ll get (whatever you don’t want, just stash until the holidays and re-gift, like we do).
Our first Geek Fuel box came with: Avengers/Breakfast Club mash-up mug (now happily holding pens on our desk), a little adorable Sinestro (love), a TMNT/Avengers mash-up t-shirt, some candy (in our bellies about 2 seconds after we took the photos), a Steam download code for Kingdom Wars 2: Battles, RETRO videogame magazine, and a little Geek Fuel magazine/guide. The value on this box was really impressive, considering the mug and shirt alone would have cost more than the box cost. We’ve been kinda let down by some of our other geek subscription boxes lately, so this was an extra nice surprise.

And a big thanks to Geek Fuel for sending this box to us! Here’s hoping they’ll have a D&D/Legend of Zelda box coming soon (that’s a hint, if you’re reading this, Geek Fuel). 🙂
