Geeksgiving 2021: Event Overview

Gear up to get grateful! Sideshow’s Geeksgiving returns Thursday, November 18 to Thursday, November 24, 2021. Featuring a smorgasbord of content such as giveaways, challenges, rewards, game shows, and livestreams, Geeksgiving is our way to celebrate the most generous time of the year.

What is Geeksgiving?

Geeksgiving is a community-centered event, which focuses on giving back to the fans. We want to thank you for all your support, views, comments, likes, and subscriptions. Though it’s impossible to express our massive amount of gratitude, we hope this weeklong event can be rewarding to those who continue to support us.

During Geeksgiving we’ll bring you livestream videos and games, contests, deals and discounts, and so much more. Get the detailed outline and schedule of festivities below.


Deals and Discounts

Sideshow’s Geeksgiving event means SALES! Check out our current on-sale items and early Black Friday specials, and get ready for daily announcements of special deals, livestream features for discounted collectibles, and more. There’s no telling what hidden gems you’ll find.

Additionally, fans can look forward to a discount-based livestream. Steal the Deal features exclusive flash deals — discount codes limited in quantity and gone in a FLASH. Watch live for your chance to purchase collectibles on super sale!

Streaming Content

Sideshow Staff Picks

During this livestream, Sideshow Staff Picks, members of the Sideshow team will be showcasing their favorite items from sideshow.com that fit a specific theme.

Game Shows

The Sideshow Geeksgiving 2021 game shows include Cobbled CosplayWin, Lose, or DIE!, Geeksgiving & Taking, and That Sideshow Game Show.

We want YOU to sign up as participants for Geeksgiving & Taking as well as That Sideshow Game Show! That’s right — we need contestants to play, and each contestant has a chance to win an awesome prize. You can enter for your chance to play using our official Game Contestant Search Gleam. Need more information before you register? Here’s a breakdown of each game.

Win, Lose, or DIE

If you like Dungeons and Dragons and horror stories, Win, Lose, or DIE is the game for you! This is a cutthroat choose-your-own-adventure style game that results in somebody — or everybody — going home with all the glory (an awesome prize!) or DYING (losing their shot at the prize). Audience members have to correctly make it through all 10 steps of the game to reach the final step and if you die, you’re out of the running. The last person playing gets an awesome amount of Sideshow Rewards. If every single player dies, the Sideshow Rewards pot gets split among all participants.

On Monday, November 22, Missy Haywood will be sharing her original story entitled “Deadly Dinner Time.”

If the Win, Lose, or DIE game show sounds fun to you, you can play along live! Look out for an access code and link during the stream. We look forward to playing with you!

Gobbled Cosplay Showdown: Fan Edition

If you’re the type to agonize over your outfits and rate the fashion of your dinner guests, Cobbled Cosplay will be a thrill for you to watch.

During Cobbled Cosplay — called Gobbled Cosplay for this event in celebration of the season contestants are tasked with recreating a surprise costume in 10 minutes using only household objects and found materials. The winner takes home the prize they are cosplaying as.

We started our Fan Edition episodes with our Fan Week Cobbled Cosplay Supersized Showdown: Fan Episode and couldn’t be happier with the way you geeks turned out to test your costuming prowess. We are always in need of Cobbled Cosplay contestants for future events. Learn how to audition on our blog.

That Sideshow Game Show

With a name like That Sideshow Game Show, absolutely anything can happen. Be prepared to appear on camera to compete in challenges that will have plenty of twists and turns — and that’s all the information you’re getting… Although you can get a preview from the games held during Spooktacular 2021. Good luck!

Geeksgiving & Taking

On Wednesday, November 24, we’ll play Geeksgiving & Taking. This game is Sideshow’s version of White Elephant, where players will be able to participate in a live gift-stealing extravaganza. May the odds be ever in your favor!
