Your Geeksgiving 2020 Event Guide

From November 19th to 26th, 2020, Sideshow is hosting our Annual Geeksgiving event!

This event will take place across all of our official social media platforms as well as in the many amazing Sideshow Facebook Groups (find the full list below).

Register for the event now at side.show/geeksgiving for exclusive access to some Geeksgiving perks. Registration is entirely FREE and is open now, qualifying you for random reward point opportunities and registrant-exclusive giveaways that will begin when the event kicks off on November 19th, 2020.


WHAT IS GEEKSGIVING?

During the holiday season, Sideshow likes to take a deep breath and express our sincere gratitude for all our fantastic fans who really know how to Let their Geek Sideshow. We thank this community for its bountiful friendship with an event called Geeksgiving.

Geeksgiving is a way to celebrate the kindness in our collecting community and embrace the spirit of the holidays–and that means giveaways, reward codes, second chance opportunities, discounts, and much more!

The event this year will run from November 19th-26th, and all activities will take place between 8am-6pm PT. Unlike our ruthless Spooktacular schedule, Geeksgiving doesn’t require you to stay up all night- we’re giving you every detail and activity in our daily schedule below, so you don’t have to worry about losing sleep.

Read on for a full breakdown of each Geeksgiving 2020 activity and opportunity.


SIDESHOW GIVES BACK

Looking to spread a little cheer this holiday season? The Sideshow Gives Back Campaign can help! If you have a family member, friend, or loved one who needs their spirits lifted this season, nominate them to receive a special Sideshow gift.

We will be selecting a portion of wishes to fulfill and secretly ship them out before the holidays as a surprise to the recipients.

Nominate a loved one by filling out the form here.


REWARD CODES

If you spot a reward code in the wild, don’t panic! Act fast to nab some sweet reward points for your Sideshow account that can be used on future purchases. These points do not have to be used by the end of the event. Once you save them successfully, they are yours to hold onto.

Each code has a limited number of unique individual uses, meaning only a certain amount of people will be able to claim it. If the code reaches its use limit before you can save it to your account, better luck next time!

Redeem rewards points at sideshow.com/code.


DISCOUNTS

All throughout November and December, Sideshow is offering discounts on select items on our website. Those collectibles can come from Art Prints, Unruly Industries™, Court of the Dead, and Atomic Misfit… essentially everywhere! If there’s something on your wishlist, you should check if it’s on sale by visiting our gift shop.

The Black Friday discounts will also be DELICIOUS. Keep a look out for those right here.

Part of our discount extravaganza also includes the Flash Deals during Steal The Deal! But more on that below…


STEAL THE DEAL

This live show will stream to all our social platforms. It features exclusive flash deals–discount codes limited in quantity and gone in a FLASH–and second chance product announcements only for our live audience. Interested?

Check out our first Steal the Deal here to see what you missed, then tune in for our next episode on Monday, November 16 at 11 AM PT. Trust us, you don’t want to skip one of these live shows.


GAME SHOWS

Throughout Geeksgiving, we’re hosting two different games: Gobbled Cosplay and Win, Lose, DIE!

The best part? We want YOU to sign up as participants! That’s right; we need contestants to play each game, and each contestant has a chance to win an awesome prize.

Gobbled Cosplay is a cobbled cosplay challenge with time constraints, frantic dress-up, and only one champion. In this show, you are fully dependent on a host and their cosplaying skills to receive the prize.

Two hosts, each representing a contestant, will face each other in a 10-minute cosplay showdown ​using only the materials in their immediate vicinity. The winner will be chosen by audience participation–who the audience thinks was the most successful in their cosplaying endeavors.

Win, Lose, DIE is a high-stakes Choose Your Own Adventure game where only one hero, the player that makes it all the way through the narrator’s trials and tribulations, receives the prize. Up to ten contestants per round will participate in a D&D style choice-based RPG with ten hurdles to jump through.

We’ll be selecting people to compete offscreen for a chance to win prizes. You can sign up at side.show/geeksgivingcontestants.

Players will have to carefully adhere to instructions to claim their spot. You may also get chosen as a runner up or alternate, not a main player. If you are selected as an alternate, the best way to improve your chances to actually play is by following instructions carefully.

We look forward to playing with you!


GIVEAWAYS

There will be giveaways on all of our official social platforms as well as in all of the Facebook groups. To increase your chances of walking away with a Geeksgiving prize…

100% OFF PROMO HUNTS

This year’s festivities will include 100% Treasure Hunts throughout the week, challenging your keen eye to make sure you’re truly paying attention to all of the excitement Sideshow has to offer.

During random intervals of the event, we will announce when a mystery treasure has been hidden on sideshow.com; these will take the form of an extremely limited 100% off promotional code on a random collectible that only the fastest handful of people will be able to claim.

If you find the code and are able to redeem it, you are still responsible for paying shipping on your 100% off item, but this special Geeksgiving opportunity is open to domestic and international collectors.


DAILY WRAP UPS

Feeling overwhelmed with info? Not sure if you missed something that day? Be sure to check out the daily Geeksgiving Wrap Up, live from 5 PM to 6 PM PT, exclusive to the Let Your Geek Sideshow Facebook Group.

Here, our hosts will catch you up on all the latest news from that day’s celebration.


GEEKSGIVING AND TAKING

On Wednesday, November 25th, we’ll tie a bow on the event with a game called Geeksgiving and Taking. It’s almost like a game of White Elephant, where all the people in the live chat will be contestants in a gift-stealing challenge.
