Geekfuel is a geek and gamer subscription box that sends an assortment of items designed to please the nerd inside. I’ve received a few months of this and while it has no set theme, it does have some pretty good items that haven’t appeared in other boxes.
I personally prefer boxes that include a t-shirt in every box and this is one of those. Geekfuel also has the distinction of being the only box (that I know of) that includes a full length game download in each box.
The Cost: $23.90/month (that’s including the shipping!)
What You Get: Every box will include a t-shirt, a full game and over $50 worth of awesome geeky goodies to appease the gamer at heart.
Geekfuel Mini-Mag- Tips and tidbits, short articles and essays related to all things geeky! There was a Hunger Games sticker inside.
Ghostbuster 30th Anniversary Playing Cards- I mostly play Solitaire on my Galaxy Note (Samsung’s Ipad) at night and rarely use a pack of cards anymore. However, these will make a stocking stuffer for my nephew and I’ll have to teach him how to play Slap.
Exclusive “Assemble the Resistance” T-Shirt- This is a T-70 X-Wing fighter model, ready to be put together. I don’t even know if they make these kinds of models anymore but when I was a kid I had plenty of these punch out types. My dad was an engineer which meant my brothers, sister and I always got the kinds of toys that had to put together.
Pac-Man Salt & Pepper Shakers- These are completely ridiculous! They’re also cute and awesome. We aren’t using them for their intended purpose. Instead they are displayed.
War Never Changes Propaganda Poster- Since we’ve had a week straight of playing Fallout, this comes right on time. I’m thinking I’m going to laminate it and put it on the wall. I was going to try and frame all these posters but they’re such weird sizes that I can’t find the right frames for them! I guess I’m going to have to do the junior high thing and stick them all on the walls with pushpins or that sticky putty.
Defense Grid 2 Downloadable Game- This is a tower defense game with pvp and multi-player co-op modes. Since my husband’s current obsession is Fallout, this will probably sit awhile before it gets played. Plus it’s probably not as good as DotA2, which he also plays.
Fallout Security Key Card- This was one of the best things in this box, according to my husband. He’s going to print out a headshot of his character and stick it on this badge then wear it to work. Or wherever. Hilarious. I told him if he dresses up in all his Fallout stuff and goes to work, I’ll make him his favorite dinner. Blech. Tuna casserole using his moms recipe. Gross.
Value: too cool for a price
VERDICT: This month’s box has a great value for. Everything will be used or displayed and even though the playing cards are meh, they’ll make a good stocking stuffer for a boy. The value this month was really great, too. It was definitely worth the cost, especially with getting a good t-shirt.

Have you been getting Geekfuel for long? What do you think of it? I’m still having a hard time deciding which geek/gamer box is my favorite because so much just depends on the month.
