Tell us what you want from ThinkGeek and win free stuff! photo
Tell us what you want from ThinkGeek and win free stuff!
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

ThinkGeek is a magical place full of geeky wonder. They have all sorts of things any nerd would want. From shirts, computer stuff, toys and more. They even have videogames such as this GP2X Wiz MAME/Amiga/Console Emulator and a320 Pocket Retro Game emulator. And today on Destructoid, as part of our 25 Days of Giving contest, you can win one of these handheld gaming devices.

All you have to do to enter for a chance to win is leave a comment below saying DO WANT, link to something from ThinkGeek that you want and tell us why you want it. For example, I would leave a comment like this:

DO WANT: http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/hoodies/97e1/ - So I can carry around the GP2X Wiz that I am going to win.

Make sure the link you leave is actually clickable and use BBCode to make the link work. You can enter as many times as you'd like, but you have to wait for at least five other people to submit an entry before you can enter again. We'll be picking three random winners when the contest closes this Friday, December 11 at 11:59 CST. First place will win the GP2X Wiz, second place will win the a320 Pocket Retro and third place will win a $50 ThinkGeek Gift Certificate. Contest is open worldwide.

By the way, ThinkGeek is holding a contest of their own where you can win a $1,000 shopping spree. Neat!

[Update: Contest closed! Congrats to galalalalaga, phantomile and Infneon as they're (respectably) the first, second and third place prize winners!]

Gaming culture on your wall: 'Know Your Weak Points!'

Commence opening your wallet. The fifth episode of Robert Ashley's A Life Well Wasted is nearly upon us. For those unfamiliar, it's described as an Internet radio show, which is about right. It's certainly no cookie cutter po...

Geek chic: This Monster Hunter jacket is too much to handle

Oh yes, it's time for another edition of Geek Chic where we look at gaming related fashion. This Monster Hunter jacket is ridiculously hot. With that said though, I’ll never be caught wearing this thing. It reminds me o...

NES business card holders might be cool, if we could see them clearly

Now here is a product that I would probably blow my money on without a moment's hesitation: a business card holder with retro flavor, representing everything from Mario and Zelda to Ice Climber and even classic Famicom. Cool,...

Geeky gaming goods give you wood... goods

How many times have you found yourself cutting meat (or... celery, for the vegetarians out there) on a plain white cutting board while thinking that something was missing from your life? Me? All the time. And that missing thi...

New York Times maps the geek universe around Gary Gygax

Here's some chicken soup for the geek in you: the New York Times has mapped out a matrix of all of the things that may have directly benefited for the geekery that was Dungeons and Dragons. It may be a stretch to attribute t...

Tetris oscilloscope hack, named Scopetris

Man, I suck at Tetris. It's now to the point where I lose every time, without fail. These days, all I can do is struggle for a few minutes before defeat, and then tell the victor that "at least I've seen a real vagina.&...
