Speak up

While I have a few ideas for games and charities I’d love to feature, I would love your input as well! Take this short survey and tell me about your favorite games, what charities are most meaningful to you, and your favorite tabletop moment.

Take the survey


Why are you doing this?

I love tabletop games, especially the newer generation of games that have appeared in the last few decades. I also love designer t-shirts that show off my favorite hobbies and passions. When I looked for shirts featuring my favorite tabletop games, I was disappointed in the few options I could find. I created Play Wear Care to sell tabletop game t-shirts I’d be proud to wear and to give back to great charities at the same time.

I’m new to tabletop games. Help!

In the last decade or so, there’s been a resurgence of interest with new types and styles of games. With so many options, where do you get started? If you like playing strategically against others, try Ticket to Ride or Settlers of Catan. Prefer playing cooperatively? Try Forbidden Island or Castle Panic. Love laughing and silliness? Try Munchkin or Cards Against Humanity. Still looking? Find a great gaming community and ask.

You haven’t designed a shirt for my favorite game!

That’s not a question. But you’re probably right - with hundreds of tabletop games, I’m sure I’ll miss more than a few. That said, you can always suggest your favorites.

What about a donation to my favorite charity?

There are so many awesome charities I would love to give back to. Help me pick the best ones by suggesting them. I’m going to favor charities with good track records.

When will you add the next shirt?

Each new shirt will be on sale for 3 weeks, starting around the middle of each month. Want to know exactly when they go on sale? Sign up for the mailing list!

What if I missed a sale for a shirt I like?

While the debut for an individual shirt will be limited to three weeks, there’s a chance it will go on sale again. Sign up for the mailing list to find out when new (or old) shirts go up for sale!

I’m allergic to shirts. How can I help?

Tell people you know! There’s a good chance you know someone who adores playing tabletop games. Maybe they also like t-shirts.

What’s your end-game?

I want to see more people playing great games. I want to see more people wearing lovely shirts and sharing their gamer fandom. I want to give money to great charities. That’s pretty much it.
