The comic 2288: Collector’s Edition featured a number of stickers which could be placed anywhere on the comic itself by a player. A list of these stickers is collected below.


A few notes:

  • Some stickers are from the book What If?, not from the website (https://what-if.xkcd.com).
    • They are noted by ‘What If Chapter XX
    • This label is applied if and only if the image comes from a chapter not featured on the website.
  • Before each list, there is a link format. Unless otherwise specified, the first column of any entry can be substituted for the part of the link X’ed out to show the image.
  • There is word miniloot as well; to view it, simply change the ‘loot’ in ‘loot-words-XXXX’ in the entry’s URL to ‘miniloot’.
