Let’s play

Ever since COVID lockdown we noticed an increase in demand for gaming gear such as gaming mouse, keyboards, big gaming mousepads and even gaming chairs. And even though there is no more lockdown, the demand is still there. Our guess is that now since many people work remotely from home some of the time they used to spend stuck in traffic or in office meetings is perhaps now spent on online entertainment. Nothing wrong with a quick round of virtual golf or WRC before the next online meetings starts, is there?

And that’s why our latest promotion leaflets features gaming mouse right at the top, with the leading sellers – the T-Dagger Honeycomb and the Redragon Mirage – offering the biggest bangs for the bucks.

In particular, the Redragon Centaur 2 is a real looker with rainbow backlighting offering seven colours and 10 lighting effects, and at only R359.
