Q: Are these games suitable for kids 10 & 12 years old?Asked by Dawn J., December 2020
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
When you go through the checkout process you will get to select if you want them to be surprised or get to choose the game each month
Q: Paid for my subscription on Jan 4th was told I would get an email so I could choose which game I would like, &shipped on the 15th. Well it's the 17th and haven't heard anything, is there 1 on the way?Asked by Gretchien B., January 2021
Hi Gretchien -- subscriptions begin the month after you sign-up (since you signed up in January, you will receive your first game in February). You will receive an email on the 1st with the options of your first game to select, and your first game will be shipped around February 15th!
Q: Is there an option to buy the box as a gift but only for a limited amount of time so that the subscription does not renew automatically?Asked by Alex B., December 2020
Yes, all of our options have prepaid options for boxes (4 box minimum). Additionally, by default when purchasing a gift the box does not renew automatically
The game we got was fine but when I signed up for the program it said I would get an email every month to choose the game we received. I never received any email but a game just showed up. I think it is a great idea but would like to have some options.
Hi Stephen -- We are glad to hear you enjoyed the game, but are concerned you didn't get the game selection email. We sent the email to your email address on file and did not receive any delivery issues. Additionally, we sent a game selection email reminder on the 5th. Please check your spam/promotions folder, sometimes we accidentally end up there 😩! If that's where we're hiding, add us to your safe-senders list so you get future emails! If you don't receive an email on the 1st of next month, please let us know and we'll have it resent directly to you. Additionally, if you'd like us to send the emails to an alternative address please let us know and we'd be happy to update...
Three reasons I like this board game subscription box:
1. The selection is not random - you can pick which game suits your needs. And if you already own all three choices - you can pick one that would be suitable to use as a gift.
2. The three games in the selections each month have been varied, topical, and high-quality.
3. Upon review past game selections - the team curating appears to have a focus on continual improvement to selections.
The only disappointing thing is that it is US shipping only. But there are plenty of work-arounds for that.
We received the first game a couple of nights ago and have really enjoyed it. Our favorite part is that we get to play games that we haven't heard of before. Can't wait to see more!
I've been a member for several months now and every game has been great. There is such a variety of games, and this box gives suggestions I might not have picked or even found at the store. Since you can pick between 3 games each month, there is always an option that fits the types of games I enjoy. I tell people about this box all the time because it's the best way to get new and unique games.
Thanks for the kind words Caitlin! We're so happy to hear you have been loving it!
We have gotten two games so far and both have been great. My son (14) is an avid board game collector and both games have been hits. The shipping has been very fast. We just got Cytosis last week and have already played it several times. Fun game. Can't wait to see what our next game will be.
Thank you for your kind words Jess! We're glad to hear your son has loved the games!
I love this subscription so much! I ended up with an awesome collection of games that my friends and I just LOVE
Great games. Great quality
Thank you! Glad to hear you've enjoyed them!

Glad you enjoyed the options!
Perfect game for our family, more of the same, please
We loved the game.
