I am pleased to announce the arrival of a store with branded t-shirts, hoodies, polos, pull-overs, dice trays and more. These items are not your typical ‘create-your-own-x’ products available from the dozens of websites that will put an image on a dumpy sweatshirt. Instead, I teamed up with small Vermont-based company that designed the logo and helped me sort through several thousand products from nearly a hundred different suppliers in order to create a selection of well-made items that I would want to own myself- (and do.) I am particularly pleased with the quality of the t-shirts, which are not only super comfortable but sustainably produced with fair labor practices.

Don’t worry though, I am not monetizing or becoming mercenary about I do hope to raise enough money to cover the annual hosting fee for the site, but any actual profits will be donated to the charity SmileTrain or a 40k-related fundraiser for a similar charity. In addition to covering my practical expenses and supporting a worthy cause, each purchase you make sustains the website in another way: it helps me stay excited about creating new posts and updating existing content by affirming that my readers are engaged.

Also, if I see you with any branded merchandise at a big tournament, I will insist on buying you a beer. Or tea. Or a hot chocolate if that’s your thing. So if that happens even once, I am guaranteed to lose money on this. Phew! Still a labor of love.

Without further ado, please visit:
Keep in mind that each of these items is available in a variety of color combinations.

NOTE FOR BUYERS OUTSIDE THE US: If you want to order something, but you are put off by a high shipping cost, send me an email using the contact tab. I can’t change international postal rates, but I can offset the total cost on your end by reducing the price to the wholesale cost.

If these initial products are successful, I plan to add objective markers, scoring mats, and additional clothing. (I am a bit of a clothes horse in real life, so I have plans…)

If you have other ideas for products you would like to see, please drop me a note using the “Contact” tab at the top of the page.

Yours in sartorial enthusiasm,
