Last week was Semi Co-op’s 3rd anniversary! We’re celebrating with a comic (number 160!) which is a nod to our very first comic! The looks of our characters have changed quite a lot over the years and we thought it would be fun to show how much has changed in a single image. And yet very little has changed… our games are still spread out throughout the house. 😉

To celebrate this wonderful milestone we’re launching a thing we’ve been working on since the last couple of months: SEMI CO-OP MERCHANDISE!!! You can actually get yourself the shirts you see in the comic above! We’ve opened a store on Threadless, which means shirts, bags, notebooks – we’re offering a wide selection of designs and products and the best thing is that when you get yourself some cool swag, you’re also supporting us a little, which is highly appreciated. <3

To celebrate our launch, we’re offering everybody a 10% discount this week!

We have some awesome ideas for future board game themed collections and we can’t wait to get working on them and make them available later this year.

Keep an eye out on our social media channels this coming week, we’re giving away some cool stuff.

Which of our 160 comics is your favorite?

Congratulations on 3 years and the merch store!

My favourite comics have probably been:

I also like Clank! and I’m glad you made a couple of different comics featuring it!

Keep up the awesome work! 🙂

Happy anniversary!

What’s this, merch? From an awesome board game webcomic? An awesome European board game webcomic, so I won’t have to pay loads to get it shipped to Europe?

*clicks*

What’s this? Dollars? US SHIPPING? Nooooooooooo! 😛

My favourite comic is this one, because it rings so true:

Android Netrunner is my very favourite game, and Arkham Horror LCG one of my other favourites, and we constantly use Netrunner terminology in it!

Also, everything else that is Netrunner-related. When I saw that you had Netrunner comics, I knew I needed to read on.

About the shop: I was going to get the green bag, but then I saw that it ships from the US and shipping is half as much as the item I want to buy, plus it’s over the VAT threshold. Man, why can’t we even get European merchandise when the creators are in Europe?! So utterly frustrating.
Since you’re running this via an external service anyway, would you consider setting up a European shop as well? I know these “Print your own designs on stuff” services exist in the EU, because I’ve bought non-boardgame merchandise in them.

The Netrunner terminology just sticks really well somehow. Even in 7th Continent, I call it installing a card! It’s ridiculous. 😉 Have you also played Netrunner: Terminal Directive?

I fully understand your frustration with the overseas store, but with most of our readers being located in the USA – this was the most logical choice for us. We haven’t looked into EU alternatives yet because that means we have to promote two different store platforms. There will be a free shipping period on Threadless from 28th April – 5th May. For international orders, that means free shipping with for orders of $80+. That is a lot of money, but we what we do often is placing a combined Threadless order with friends. Oh yes, and on April 28th, we will have a 10% discount again because of International Tabletop Day.
