Let’s not forget that on top of all the wonderful crafts that we have sent in every year, we also have some legit merch for your Desert Bus needs.



To start off, we’ve got the BRAND NEW Desert Bus 2017 Pinny Arcade Pin.

The BUG SPLAT, in all it’s delicious, goopy…glittery wonder. It is a limited edition pin and an official addition to the Pinny Arcade collection.

The pin will be available for purchase in the LoadingReadyRun store during Desert Bus (while supplies last), and proceeds will go to Child’s Play Charity.





We also have the yearly Desert Bus poster, drawn by Michael Lunsford and while it may seem empty now, it will slowly be filled with loads of memes, goofs, and other utter nonsense as the event goes on. It is limited purchase, and it supports all the things you love.

As with every year, profits from the poster go to Michael Lunsford, LoadingReadyRun (for Desert Bus admin costs), and Child’s Play Charity.




Next up to bat, we have the Desert Bus 10 softcover Photo Book. A book lovingly shot, edited, and laid out by Andrew Ferguson, the main Desert Bus photographer.
This is a preorder item and will be printed once the run is over.

As with every year, profits from photo books are split between Andrew Ferguson, LoadingReadyRun (for Desert Bus admin costs), and Child’s Play Charity.



And back by popular demand! We have our Desert Bus Shift Banner playmat! Use it when you sling spells or even as the largest mousepad you’ve ever seen.

This is a preorder item and will be printed once the run is over.

As with all Desert Bus merch, profits are split between LoadingReadyRun (for Desert Bus admin costs), and Child’s Play Charity.


And of course, as always, we have our new Desert Bus 2017 shirt by Fangamer. Check out more details on our longer post about that here.unnamed

DB Crew Playmat

Created & Donated by Rose Nightshade


Want to remember the enjoyment of watching Desert Bus every time you need to break out a playmat for some TCG or gaming action? Sure you do! Who wouldn’t?! With this playmat you’ll have nearly the whole Desert Bus crew help you out casting all the spells or rolling all the dice ya need! Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, Card Fight Vanguard, Tarot, classic Solitaire? Want a rad mat to roll your dice for your next D&D session? Flunging? Beej will back you up. (Probably. Maybe? He’s still not sure on the mechanics of the game???) Need to roll a crit so your party doesn’t wipe? Jer will help you out…? Okay, uh, maybe don’t look to Jer for help on that. Need to crush your opponent so badly they’ll fear your wrath forever more? Kathleen has got your back. Whatever your game situation, these chibi-fied LRR and DB crew will inspire you!

Image is fabric printed with black poly-vinyl padded back. Measurements: 14” x 24” x 1/8” thick (Standard MtG playmat size.)

About the Artist:
This amazing playmat is printed with the artwork of the talented Rose Nightshade. She has been moonlighting as a freelance artist available for commission for nearly a decade, but has been an artist since the moment she was allowed to doodle with something that could make a mark. She has sold her artwork at multiple nerd centric conventions in central Florida including Megacon and many local anime conventions (when she wasn’t running around in cosplay hanging out with her friends). Most recently she has been focusing on creating furry art, but still loves rendering art of many subjects; anime, pop culture, and cartoons being a few of her favorites. She has previously donated her wand-making skills to Desert Bus, and this is her first time contributing 2D art.
