Often, when you go to a convention that supports gaming, they'll give you a grab-bag of free convention swag at registration. What specific item can we create to give away at a convention and promote the site?

Some ideas:

  • Keychain
  • Plastic dragon mini
  • Button w/site logo
  • Cheap collectible game
  • Branded dice?

Example contents of a grab-bag from various Dexcons (www.dexposure.com):

  • Battlestar Galactica Keychain
  • Copy of Scientific American
  • Toy insect (goes with an online webgame)
  • Cheapass Games(TM) button game (you wear a button w/character picture and stats, and you can duel other people with buttons)

We need postcards, and business cards, but I think we have the potential with this site audience to come up with something unique and cool that people will really want to hang on to.

Dice would be pretty cool. Something like a ? for the 1 and the logo for the 6, maybe? Here're some custom die costs; looks like it'd cost around $2.50 per die if the print run was in the thousands.
