Geek Fuel is a newer subscription box that caters to fans of all things “nerdy”. I reviewed their January box and thought it was pretty fun, so I was excited to see what would be in store for March.
Geek Fuel boxes can include items such as t-shirts, action figures, comics, movie posters, toys, downloadable games, and more. They feature plenty of exclusive items and promise a total value of at least $40 in each box.
Monthly subscriptions are $17.90 (plus $6 shipping, so $23.90 total) or lower with multi-month commitments. 6 and 12 month subscriptions come with mystery bonus items! (Oooh!)
Alright! — Time for the March 2015 Geek Fuel unboxing!
Everything comes packed inside a bright red box adorned with their cute little robot logo.
The theme for March was related to “Fantasy” and included plenty of fun, geeky goodies.
This month’s mini mag featured a sad farewell to Leonard Nimoy, a look at Orlando’s MegaCon, a geek gift guide, and more.
Thrones of Games T-Shirt – A Geek Fuel exclusive t-shirt that features some of the most famous video game characters perched on their very own thrones… Hence, “thrones of games”. I’ll admit, I only recognized two of the games (Mario & Zelda), but luckily they’ve included a breakdown of each character inside the mini mag for anyone else who gets stumped (or just plain doesn’t know).
Warmachine Tactics Downloadable Game Code & Sticker Sheet – A full game download (a $40 value!) is included here, along with a sticker set featuring characters from the game. My husband only plays console games, so while it’s a good value we don’t have any use for this. That said, if anyone would like the code, just comment on this post and it’s yours!
Dragon Glass – Nope, no clue what this is all about. Please hold while I consult Mr. Google… Okay, that explains it. I’ve never seen Game of Thrones, so this is complete gibberish to me, but according to Wikipedia: “Dragonglass is a common name in Westeros for the substance known as obsidian, a form of volcanic glass. It is notable for being, thus far seen, the only substance capable of killing White Walkers.” So there you go.
Game of Thrones Comic Book – Subscribers received 1 of 5 different books, though I’m not sure if they’re all different issues, or just have variant covers.
Star Trek Vulcan Sign Pin – This wasn’t on the info card, so I’m guessing it was included to pay homage to Leonard Nimoy. Nice.
Gears of War Imulsion Energy Drink – My husband used to play Gears of War all the damn time (until we had kids), so he thought this drink was kinda cool. He hasn’t tried it yet, but it’s definitely all his… I don’t trust beverages with skulls on the label. 😉
Darryll Jones Poster – Clearly I had issues trying to get a good photo of this poster. (Rolled-up papers are not very photogenic.) You can’t see him too well, but there’s a Stormtrooper flying the plane. This work is from artist Darryll Jones, whom you can read more about in this month’s mini mag.
While I wasn’t too thrilled with the theme, March’s Geek Fuel box was great for any fan of Game of Thrones and/or the fantasy genre. My husband liked the shirt and will likely try the energy drink, but I think we’ll give the rest the things to someone who appreciates the genre more.Browse more Geek and Gamer Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory

I hadn’t heard of this sub box before, but it looks like a really good one! I get Loot Crate right now and love it, but if I get a second nerdy crate it might have to be this one!
Hi, Would like the Warmachine Tactics Code if still available. Thanks and keep up the good work! -I think you may have helped a company take my wallet 😉
