Every weekday starting Wednesday 12/15 and running through Wednesday 12/22, we're going to reveal a mystery prize box* as seen above. You may be familiar with this "advent" concept.
* No, we're not doing this just because we have so many freebies lying around that the producers of Hoarders have contacted us. (We are totally going to get those NES cartridges out of the bathtub soon. Except for that one. And that one. Actually, this is making us very uncomfortable.)
