Nerd Block, one of the first nerd subscription boxes to help grow the geek box industry has shut its doors. According to recent filings, Nerd Block, as well as their parent company Fan Block, intend to file for bankruptcy. As of July, Nerd Block suspended shipments of all their monthly nerd subscription boxes – Nerd Block, Comic Block, Gamer Block, Sci-Fi Block, Horror Block and Nerd Block Jr., as well as Shirt Block and their recently launched Valor Blocks military subscription box line. Nerd Block subscribers have reportedly been issued refunds for any unshipped boxes remaining on their subscriptions.
While it’s sad to see any subscription box company close its doors, fortunately there are still plenty of Nerd Block alternatives to help you get your monthly nerd fix. Here are 17 Nerdy Subscription Boxes to replace Nerd Block.
