"Welcome to the show of easy prizes and hard choices! It's Let's Deal! I'm your host, Barnabas Marsh. Today's first contestant is Whit Wicker, a professional college student from Harvard, Michigan. Tell us about yourself, Whit!"</p>

"I'm not here to make friends; I'm here to win!"</p>

"All right; Let's Deal! Did you want Box #1, Box #2, or Box #3?"</p>

"I'll take Box #1."</p>

"It's a brand new issue of the award-winning magazine for roleplayers: Pyramid #3/30: Spaceships (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-2630)! [AUDIENCE OOHS!] Yes, this stylish PDF contains a mini-armada of brand new vessels using the GURPS Spaceships (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/spaceships/) system. It also features a cybernetic captain template, expanded information on the GURPS Technomancer (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/technomancer/) solar system, optional rules for handling fleet combat using the GURPS Mass Combat (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/masscombat/) system, an adventure containing a menagerie of menacing monsters, and more!"</p>

"Oh, wow. That is amazing."</p>

"It certainly is! So . . . let's deal. Did you want to keep Box #1, or give it up for what's in Box #2?"</p>

"Gosh, that issue of Pyramid (http://www.sjgames.com/pyramid/) sounds incredible. The cybernetic options for ship captains sound especially appealing, and I love those alternate-history spacecraft designs. But I think I'll see what's in Box #2."</p>

"Very good, Whit! It's . . . a complete run of Fantasy Gamer (http://www.sjgames.com/fantasygamer/) magazine! [AUDIENCE AAHS!] Yes, Fantasy Gamer, the fantasy-themed publication that spun off from Space Gamer (http://www.sjgames.com/spacegamer/) for six issues starting in 1983. This retro-chic publication includes treasures such as a slasher film-inspired boardgame (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-2381), a gamer's guide to Victorian London (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-2382), a solo adventure (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-2383) for Call of Cthulhu, a battling-wizard game by Steve Jackson (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-2385), and more!"</p>

"Wow . . . that sounds like hours of fun right there in each issue."</p>

"It is! So, you've seen what's in Box #2. Let's deal. Keep those incredible issues, or take Box #3?"</p>

"I love all that retro-gaming stuff, and PDFs are so convenient to read and enjoy . . . but I think I'm going to go for what's in Box #3."</p>

"No problem, Whit! Box #3 contains . . . bees!" [AUDIENCE EEKS!]</p>

"That's great! I've been wanting to get into beekeepiIEEEEEEEEeeee!!!! . . ."</p>

"And now, a word from our sponsor."</p>
