Ungeek and PayMaya will let you win exclusive Tokyo Game Show 2017 Merch!

Everything we buy, you win! You in?

ONE Store Beta Now Available


Tokyo Game Show, the mecca of console gaming, is happening once again this week and we’re stoked to be back covering this prestigious event once more.  This year, we thought we’d bring the experience much closer to you guys by giving you a chance to bag exclusive Tokyo Game Show Merch, thanks largely to PayMaya.

If you’re new to the site, we were able to cover the Tokyo Game Show last year and was totally floored when we got in the Merch Booth – which is approximately the size of 3 SMX halls.

If the trend is to be believed, this year’s Merch Area will probably be bigger than last year’s. Lord, save us!

We saw a lot of gaming and geek-centric merchandise ranging from apparels, small plushies to expensive figurines. Our hearts were overjoyed but our wallets…well, let’s just say we’re not in speaking terms right now. ☹


This time around we’re going on a TGS 2017 MERCH CHALLENGE and try to keep within a certain budget. Enter PayMaya, the convenient way to shop without bringing cash.

This e-payment system also acts as a debit-card of sorts and that’s exactly what we need to ensure our bank accounts do not bleed dry.

We brought our PayMaya card with us and will try to get as much TGS and/or Tokyo-exclusive merch with a budget of Php 10,000 or roughly US$200. The challenge is to use just PayMaya to survive the Merch booth dive!

Here’s where things get interesting. Whatever we end up buying, you guys can get the chance of owning!

Yup, EVERYTHING we buy from this Tokyo Game Show PayMaya Merch Challenge, we’ll raffle it off to the community.

You can boast to your friends that you got fresh swag from one of the largest game shows in the region with a few easy steps!
