ThinkGeek, the retailer for all things geeky and nerdy, also described as "Sharper Image for sysadmins," is having a massive clearance sale with collectibles, accessories, tools, and clothing for all tastes and styles.

The sheer amount of items available for sale will take quite some time to browse through, but here's a selection of the stuff that's most likely to appeal to your video gaming and tabletop tastes. All prices included below are the final sum you'll pay with all stacked discounts applied. You have to be logged in on ThinkGeek.com with your account to see the discounts properly, and they only show in cart.
Nintendo & Pokemon Merchandise DealsFirst off you're probably interested in the classic Nintendo collectibles, such as this sleek Super Nintendo Box Art Canvas ($2.33) featuring the original SNES box art for Super Mario World and Super Mario Kart. As a sidekick to that canvas, you can also get the Super Nintendo Controller Wall Art Set ($7.19), consisting of three frames that make up the classic SNES controller. Or maybe if you're more of a portable gamer, you might prefer the Game Boy Coffee Canister ($5.03) to keep that coffee-blood ratio just right.
If you're a Zelda fan, there are plenty of options for clothing and purses. For instance, the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Hylian Shield Ladies' Knitted Poncho Wrap ($7.91) might help to warm up in those cooler days, especially if worn in tandem with the Legend of Zelda Hyrule Leggings ($3.59 to $4.50), a very attractive look. To match the set you can add the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sheikah Slate Satchel ($7.19), then you're ready to save the princess, unless she's in another castle. There are also three offerings of Pokemon purses, the Pokemon Squirtle Faux Leather Crossbody Purse ($5.39), the Pokemon Charmander Faux Leather Crossbody Purse ($5.39), and the Pokemon Bulbasaur Faux Leather Crossbody Purse ($5.39). And if you're a dude going to the beach over the summer, consider the Super Mario Board Shorts ($3.05).
Fallout & Skyrim Merchandise DealsIf you're more of a Fallout fan, there are several collectibles you might want to snag. A couple of cool exclusives are the Fallout Pip-Boy Auto Mat Set ($7.19) and the Fallout Pip-Boy Seat Cover ($4.31). Even if there are no drivable cars in the Fallout universe (well, at least not in Bethesda's Fallout universe), doesn't mean you shouldn't decorate your car in the post-apocalyptic style. Otherwise, if you need something to adorn your bathroom, consider the Fallout Shower Curtain ($4.31), which is literally full of perks. And if you're more of a cerebral Fallout fan, you'll definitely want the exclusive Fallout Chess Set ($5.75). As an extra, if you're a Skyrim fan you might be interested in the Alduin’s Wall Fleece ($2.33), to give your home decor that extra Fus-ro-dah Feng-shui.
Borderlands Merchandise DealsAnother fan-favorite might be the Borderlands collectibles. One of them is the exclusive Claptrap Talking Car Charger ($5.75), which is good because he won't be talking your ear off while you drive. Another exclusive is the Claptastic Voyage LP ($3.59), which includes ten tracks composed for Borderlands The Pre-Sequel. And for that handsome decor, you might want the Borderlands Hand-Painted Framed Resin Masks ($10.79).
SundriesHere you get a bit of everything, such as the The Art of God of War Exclusive Edition artbook ($11.51), where you can see all the concept art for the Dad of War. A few Overwatch wearables might be your thing, such as the Overwatch Reinhardt Ultimate Hoodie ($7.91) and the Overwatch Belt ($5.03). If you're wearing those, then, and only then, you'll be able to steal some cookies from the Overwatch Loot Box Ceramic Cookie Jar. Underneath that hoodie and that belt you also could wear the Pac-Man Boxer Brief ($7.19) for some ambitious crossover.
Tabletop GamesMaybe you're more of an old-school gamer who prefers the domain of cardboard and plastic. Here's a quick selection of possible titles you might be interested in:
- Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal Board Game ($5.75)
- Emergents: Genesis ($2.87)
- Rick and Morty Close Rick-Counters of the Rick-Kind ($5.75)
