Yes! Most games are suitable for that age range. We recommend our boxes for ages 8+.


Q: I would like to order as a gift but know they have lots of games - do they get to pick their game or is one sent with no choice?Asked by Phaedra L., December 2020

Yes! All of our subscriptions have a prepay option which you can play for all the games at once as part of the subscription.

Easy and fun but tough on the bifocals

The only thing I didn’t like is the map was huge and the tiniest details really make the game. Not good if your at that stage of life that requires bifocal’s. The magnifying glass included was useful but needed to be bigger.
Once you get the hang of the game each can be solved in about 15-20 minutes which keeps the interest of the easily distracted.
Hanging the map on the wall works best but you need to have good light to see the details to solve the case.

Loved getting games each month this winter! It gave my husband and I something to look forward to and it was fun trying out new games we wouldn’t typically pick out!! Great customer service as well!

My wife and I have reached a point where during the winter months we hang close to the house. We are also realizing that tv can only be so entertaining. We picked up a game "Sequence" thinking we'd play once or twice a month as a break from the tv, what we found is that 2 or 3 times a week we were playing. This led to a Christmas gift idea and UnboxBoardom was a perfect fit. The first game won't arrive until January but I have contacted their service group 2 or 3 times regarding the subscription settings and how best to communicate the gift to my wife. Each time they responded extremely quickly and were very friendly with their communication. I have no doubts that if a question ever comes up they will continue to provide outstanding service.
If you're considering a subscription, go for it. Great people and I'm sure the games will be fantastic as well.

Excellent selection of games! Everything from fast, fun family games to award-winning Eurogames. There's always something I want in each mth's choices--sometimes it's hard to decide! Probably about 30-50% of the time they offer a game that's actually on my wishlist! Really enjoy this subscription❤👍

Perfect for our family of four. Game was not too easy, not too hard for all players. Challenging and fun. The surprise is the best part. Nice to come home to a cool new game on the table and reinstate family game night after too many nights of Netflix binging!

A fantastic subscription for any board game fan! It's an excellent service to cater to new collectors and seasoned players alike. Each month offers a great selection of games ranging in style, complexity, and number of players. It's been wonderful finding new unique games I might never have come across otherwise as well as seeing classics that offer hours of fun with friends and family (or solo play) that I'm very thankful for. Highly recommend you support this awesome company and snag a subscription for yourself or anyone who loves great games.

I've sent a year's worth of games to my daughter's family --and each one has been unique, fun, challenging, and just right for this game-crazy group! The service, quality, and diversity have been incredible, and I can't recommend this company highly enough!
