The April Loot Crate, themed QUEST, has arrived in the dojo. As we do every month – we’ve unboxed, unpacked, taken photos and prepped our review for you. Maybe you didn’t get this one or maybe you’re simply waiting for it to arrive. Either way, the adventure awaits. Did the QUEST crate make the cut? It’s up to you to decide.
Welcome, Traveler!! Thanks for joining us as we journey through mystical lands and far-flung places! This month, we’re celebrating epic adventures, perilous quests and the fellowships of unlikely friends that make them worth going on.
WHAT IS LOOT CRATE?
Not familiar with Loot Crate? For under $20 a month, they deliver a box of Geek & Gamer gear valued at over $40. Shirts, stickers, collectibles from companies like kidrobot, Funko, Quantum Mechanix, etc. and random fun stuff like sunglasses & socks. All the gear is nerd/geek themed and every month is like Nerd Christmas.

You are the one that decides whether or not the QUEST Crate was a winner, but that doesn’t mean you won’t hear my opinion. While this crate came close, it just really wasn’t for me. Luckily, I have some friends and family that are about to get a few nerdy items. My wife LOVES Harry Potter and will get some use out of those awesome socks. Friend of the Fu Greg is a big Uncharted fan and will soon be displaying that poster at his place. And I think I have a home for that Labyrinth shirt as well.
It’s hard to pick a favorite item, but I am going to go with the Labyrinth shirt. What a great movie and a fantastic way to honor the late, great David Bowie.

That Viking drinking horn is awesome.
I agree Sully. This wasn’t my cup o tea. But I will have gifts to hand to people now. My wife too loves harry potter. Buddy likes vikings. My fav tho would have to be the Frozen Die maker. Starting to get back into board games and will bring some ceremonial ice for our next board game night!
