May Game Box Monthly Review: Paradise Fallen
by Sarah Ragsdale written 2 years ago
Excited to unbox the board game Paradise Fallen in this month's Game Box Monthly!
I first subscribed with a Groupon coupon that got me, I think 40% off for the first 3 months.
The games that we received were all valued at $15 or under and none of the games were the type my Husband and I would enjoy. Our kids did like 1 or 2 of the games, but we got the subscription for us, not them.
What is more frustrating is that we actually took the time to update our profile with our current game inventory, not only to avoid getting duplicates, but to let them know what type of games we were interested in. It would not appear that they actually review this when selecting the games.
At first I though they were sending us cheaper games, because we did not pay full price for the subscription (Groupon). But when I forgot to cancel and was billed $74 PLUS S&H for another 3 months, I was expecting to start receiving games valued at $25 or more. After all isn't that the point of a blind box? You get to be surprised and usually get a better value for your mystery game!
Umm no, the value of the games you get is $15-$20. So you are paying higher than sticker price for a lame game that you are unlikely to even play.
Save your money and just buy the games you actually want.
i'm not sure this company pays attention to what you want. I was considering keeping this service but this months game was just a small box of cards worth a low value and 15 minute of game play time. i dont feel like this is worth the money. my first game was fun. the next month was just ok, but this month i feel ripped off. I will not be continuing my deliveries.
