The other day, an EA spokesperson invited me to go to Germany to go to some Porsche driving school in order to, in a roundabout way, play more of the next Need for Speed. (I declined.) Today, Capcom sent me a really heavy box. A $US300 chess set was in it. Yes, it’s cool. No, it wasn’t necessary.

I usually refrain from posting the expensive stuff we’re sent. Often, I just throw it out. Or give it away. This one, however, kept making people in the office gawk (no pun intended), so I figured you should see it, too. Some will saw we should do a charity auction, but that’s more free publicity and plays into the swag-mailing-turns-into-a-post problem. Others might suggest we send it back, but this thing is heavy and I’d rather not waste budget. So… what to do?
