Q: If we choose the "select game ahead of time" and are receiving the monthly subscription, are we able to switch to the "surprise me" option later?Asked by Rachel B., April 2020
Yes! Just reach out to us if you'd like to switch and we'll be happy to update your preference!
Q: Are we able to preview the game ahead of time? We are avid gamers so I worry that we would get games we already have. Asked by Kobra D., March 2020
Yes! If you choose the option to select the games yourself, you will receive an email on the 1st of the month with the options of your three games to select from.
Every month before the shipment you will get an email that gives you a choice between 3 games. You can pick one of the games, or if you don't pick, they'll send you a random one of the 3.
Q: Are many 2 player games offered?Asked by The W., December 2019
Yes! We try to feature a variety of games each month with our choices for
different skill levels, themes, player counts, etc. Typically at least two,
if not all three choices are playable with 2 players.
We have the "every other month" subscription. We have recieved a game in august, october, and december. Being able to preview has helped so we could choose the games for 2 or more players. There has been a 2 player option every month we have recieved a game.
Love this game!! It was so much fun to play and so totally different than the usual games in the store. The only complaint we had was with the directions. We had so many questions and couldn't find the answers so we just made up our own rules.
We're so glad to hear you love it! Try looking up the game on BoardGameGeek, which contains videos, posts, etc. about the game which may help answer some of your questions!
We received our first box this week and have loved the game--it's not a game I ever would have chosen, so it's been a delight to have someone else choose it for us!
I love your subscription!!! I love board games so I plan on keep this for a while. The board games you guys send are good games. :)
We are a family of board gamers and have owned hundreds of board games so I was skeptical about this box, but the curation was fantastic! We had a choice of three games and none of them were already in our game collection. All five of us had a great time playing the game we chose and we are all looking forward to the next box.
So far, we enjoy this service. We had a slight issue regarding shipping. We were sent the wrong tracking information and that led to some confusion.
We really enjoyed the game. It isn't overly complex and we picked it up quickly, considering I'm legally blind and we have a seven and nine year old. There's a lot of room to help or double-cross the other players.
I can't wait to try the game out!
My group has not yet played Planet, we usually meet once a month or so.
Loved the idea, loved the box, but after reading the instructions 6 times and watching the video of how to play 3 times I have no idea how to play the game and my 9 year old wants to play, but between my husband and I we can’t figure it out.
This isn’t a game i would have chosen for myself, but I really enjoyed it and plan to introduce others to it soon. I thought the instructions were a bit wordy and didn’t flow as simply as they could, but once I understood them the game is pretty simple to set up and play.
we ordered the box December 9th and It arrived January 19 so the shipping wasn't to bad. The game is awesome. My 7 year old son wanted us to play it everyday every other hour all weekend long.
