Oh, and this shirt renewed my feud with Dysentery. Screw dysentery.



I preferred Yukon Trail. I'm an odd cookie.

You should, I did! I can't believe I just noticed Pitfall Harry on here. I guess poor Harry got overlooked what with all the drama this shirt evoked. Thank you for not using that other "P" character, and congrats, Cho, on getting this one to 1st place. This will probably be the shirt to knock Anatomy Test off the reckoning list (if it survives until Alpha Battle arrives on the chart), but oh well, it's had a grate ride. I wouldn't be surprised if this takes over the Zelda shirt's place.

Africa Trail ftw!

I bought one, it's pretty clever as game shirts go. And I like that the triforce is just a jump for Excitebike, llo.

grate win Cho! So happy to see this take first. i fear we'll see two letter animals next (*yawn*) so at least something remotely creative came out of this silly derby. Sadly, I don't wear video games, so this won't find a place in my closet...it's also already too asphalty as it is

Can't wait to see what you and everyone else has going for the Revolution derby! I hope to see lots of historical goodness!

S should have been Snake.

*edit* nm. Forgot L for Luigi could be for Luigi's Mansion. I was thinking L for Luigi was breaking what seemed to be the rule for it being game titles. Oh well. There's always Snake's Revenge :P

Weird. All of the shirts I have really liked (and bought) from Woot have ALL been Asphalt.

I want this one really bad... but I don't think I'd actually wear it in public. So no, but really good design. Wouldn't be surprised if it sold out early.

I hope the monkey comes up.

Well, with Indiana Jones and Professor X on there.. it's only loosely based by title.

Actually, I think this is my problem -- I like it a ton, the artwork, that is -- but I just don't know how I feel about it on a shirt. I've even got my order confirmation queued up with the "BUY IT" button staring me in the face. Sigh. I feel like I'm running out of time to decide!

Why is it that anything with a video game reference wins? Pretty good, but still...nerd central.

This is the closest I've ever come to buying a shirt, but $10 is too much. $7 is my (arbitrary) limit for gimmicky cute shirts. Woot, drop your price and I'd be buying 2 a week (if you actually read these threads; I guess you get enough business already).

Wasn't sure if I wanted it or not, but ordered one so I don't miss out. Worst case, it'll be a fun gift.

X-Men is a game title. Indiana Jones is a game title (Atari).

The poem references the challenge to restore the Ursa Major constellation, where you want to pick up the biggest bear on the map without ever touching any of the smaller bears. Extremely frustrating.

Regardless, video games are certainly not the first thing to pop into your mind when you think of these two.

I honestly don't get it, he didn't even attempt to incorporate the alphabet, just put down 26 games an labeled them to qualify for the derby.

That, and I'm a little 'saturated' with video game t-shirts from the year i was born derby.

Gotta hand it to him for knowing his (predictable) woot audience. Game = Upvote

Well, the theme was "Alphabet," and the stipulation was that you had to "include all 26 letters in your design," which he stuck to.

I think it's a very creative interpretation, because nowhere in the rules does it say you have to create your art using solely letters. If they wanted that, they'd have said it, and they'd have rejected this rather than printing it.

These are grate little mini-interpretations, and though some may think he's skirting the theme, I think he's right on track.

I guess my point is that (to me) the letters seem superfluous. More of an afterthought. I like to think that these derby shirts stand on their own without the "backup" of the assignment to justify their designs.

I love this design but A) I'm kinda trying to move away from the whole video game thing, B) idk, i cant see myself wearing it, C) I'm saving my money for next weekend's derby winners, because it's bound to be amazing. o.O Good derby topic + extra week to prepare? I'm ready to see amazing designs next week.
