What is the story behind this keyboard?
I posted this keyboard for sale on reddit and quickly found a buyer. The transaction went smoothly and I thought it was a mutually beneficial exchange until I checked my inbox and saw this message:

Ooof. I'm not sure what I did to deserve being talked to like that but I offered the person a full refund as long as the board was returned in the same shape that it was sent in (it was and the refund has been issued).

Do you have any pictures of the keyboard?
Of course! I love taking pictures.

What are the rules for the raffle/giveaway?
  • Returns not accepted
  • I will cover shipping costs, regardless of winner's location
  • Keyboard may be cursed (buyer beware)
  • Please do not enter if you were the original buyer
Aren't you just being passive aggressive?
Maybe. But don't let that get between you and (what I feel) is a great keyboard!

When will the winner be selected?
This Friday at 5PM central time.

How do I enter?
Just reply to this post or shoot me a PM.

Update: 27 Feb
Several people have expressed disappointment that the keyboard is no longer cursed. I can re-curse the keyboard by request. I will leave this up to the winner. If you win, just let me know, "I would / would not like the keyboard cursed".

Update: 1 Mar
Last call for raffle entries. Winner gets selected at ~5pm central time today.

If 3 more people enter before the drawing, I’ll message the original buyer and ask him if he cursed the keyboard.

This is a fantastic giveaway! Thanks for doing it! I guess this is is gonna be the post where I enter?


I don’t own any space invaders boards, I’ve never even tried one! Nor do I own a 122 key!

That's a cool board.

I look forward to clean the switches so it's no longer a scratchy mess :mrgreen: .

I'm not interested in keyboards that size, but I applaud your generosity! I suspect that the shipping could be costly.
BTW, The Wiki says that black switches with two eyes would be tactile. Does that apply to this one?

I love the look of that keyboard, sort of like an IBM 122 but still its own thing.

One enter-ino coming up!

Space invaders are the main switch type I have yet to try, and I do love me a good 122 key behemoth.

Heck yes,I'm very much down for getting a staggered battleship to pair with my oversized ortho BFO-9000.

Just a heads up, the keyboard/switches feel fine. No clue what original buyer was talking about. Maybe his fingers are rattled from using Nexus sliders.

It's a handsome looking giant keyboard...

One thing have to get it out of my chest - at first, I read the title as "the bonershaker"...

Thanks for doing this! I'd love to finally get a usable space invader board. So far I only have a NIB white space invader Liberty board in perfect winkeyless ISO DE layout, but I haven't found out what protocol it speaks. :(

I have been interested in trying space invaders for some time. Thanks for doing the giveaway. Good luck all.

Sounds like typical Reddit snobbery to me. I'm in.

I guess I can't resist any keyboard with 122-keys, but considering the shipping cost expecially where Im living, I better walk away.

Good luck, all guys.
