I’ve pretty sure I’ve just had the nerdiest weekend of my entire life. And—in true pre-release fashion—it all started on Wednesday, with the arrival of another
This month’s theme was: Adventure, and unlike last month’s theme—Dragons—I was quite looking forward to this one.
In the end, I still felt about as thrilled about the content as last time and I’m beginning to feel like maybe Loot Crate isn’t for me.

My viking-like apetite wasn’t silenced with such a puny burger though, so I also ended up going to Crabbie Shack to try their Soft Shelled Crab burger which was… well… interesting. I’m still not entirely sure if I liked it because, between the condiments and the batter the crab was dipped in before it was fried, I couldn’t discern a lot of crab taste.
Overall though, a really
