If you’re unfamiliar, Woot is a daily-deals type of website. Every so often, they post a Bag Of Crap (BOC) deal. For $3 (+shipping) you get a random selection of leftover goodies. You never know if it’s going to be good stuff … or, well, crap. People go nuts for the BOC and they usually sell out really fast. But I managed to score one last week and it came in the mail yesterday…
The box was pretty good sized, and according to FedEx, the box weighed 5.5 pounds.
So what was in it?
My Woot Bag of Crap contained: a tote bag, W00t-branded sweatbands (headband and wristbands), a UV toothbrush sanitizer (!?), an Atari Flashback 2 game system (!!) and a scarf that has a sock-monkey type head at each end …
The monkey heads at the ends of the scarf have pockets so you can slide your hands in to keep them warm. Or so you can have puppet shows. (Can I be honest? I kinda love this scarf. Like, a lot. I’m totally going to be rockin’ it this autumn!)
Pretty good haul for $3, huh!? I’m really excited to hook up the Atari. I haven’t played Asteroids or Space Invaders in, oh, 20-some years? (EEK!) The box doesn’t list all 40 games, but I’m really hoping Pitfall is on there too. I wanna jump some ‘gaters! I totally think an evening of beers and wine and classic video gaming is in order!
