So, we're heading into the special time once every few years where we need to hold a donation drive, and I need your help deciding what to give away as merch gifts! This time around, lower level donors ($20 or less) will be getting two small gifts, but I'm looking at larger gifts to give away past the $50 mark or so in addition to the smaller gifts.
Cards Against Humanity expansion deck: CAH is pretty much the best. We'd create a 100-card expansion pack for your deck, full of video game and community references clever enough for your non-gaming friends to enjoy yet you can roll your eyes at.
Hat: These would be custom-embroidered hats on high-quality snapbacks with your choice of the Sonic Retro circle and star, Service Games logo or the SEGAbits Opa-Opa.
Fancy USB drive: Looking at a few different options, but a 16GB custom USB drive that's either a dual-combination bottle opener + USB, something that fits cleanly on a keychain or stashable in a wallet.
Pint glass(es?): Probably one (but maybe two!) glasses with some cleverness thrown in.
T-Shirt: Retro circle and star, Service Games logo or the SEGAbits Opa-Opa on high-quality Alternative Apparel shirts.
BUT I WANT THEM ALL!
Cool story. I'll probably offer multiple things if we have larger donations!

I'd love a Rusted Copper coloured circle+star T-shirt, but all of these sound like great ideas.

I love the T-Shirt idea and if you like, I have a few cool design ideas if you're open to suggestions in that regard.
But I'm also a hopeless alcoholic so those pint glasses will go nicely with my collection of exotic drink vessels.

I still have the badges from all those years ago somewhere. They'd look good on a T-shirt.

I still haven't received my badges.
As neat as it would be to purchase community ROM hacks on actual cartridges, I know why that will never happen. USB drives would seem most useful.

Custom USB drives and Sonic Retro themed T shirts sound like the most attractive options. I'd personally donate if I received those as rewards. Great ideas!

I noticed I don't have a whole lot of headwear, so I'm totally down for a Retro cap.
Posted 23 January 2015 - 11:15 AM
T-shirt sounds pretty good.
Posted 23 January 2015 - 11:26 AM
The Retro Cap and T-shirt sound awesome. I would get either.
Posted 23 January 2015 - 02:36 PM
Totally would work out a way to get hold of one of the glasses. =P

I would gladly throw my monies at you guys for a nice T-shirt.

I hope I'm not the only one who would be down for the CAH pack, although no offense to SS, I'd rather not pay $50 for something CAH puts out for $10.

You realise it's more of an incentive to donate rather than outright buying something, yeah? =P
Posted 23 January 2015 - 05:16 PM
I'd probably go for all.
Wouldn't mind seeing a donation drive stream on Twitch like what The Shad 3 or so years back. Damn good times.

I know it will be a different set of CAH cards from what we've seen, but I'd love that. I'd also dig the pint glass. Shirt... Eh. I'm happy enough sporting the Sega Retro S on my blazer.
