Q: Do you offer a payment option that would allow us to pay up front for a few months rather than month to month?Asked by Marissa S., July 2020
Yes! Any of our term options offer prepay options for you to pay in advance which you can select during the checkout process. Additionally, the prepaid options are discounted off the month to month price for extra savings!
Q: What is the recommended age range for the games in this box?Asked by David J., May 2020
We recommend our boxes for ages 8+
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.
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!
Great games. Great quality
Thank you! Glad to hear you've enjoyed them!
Great game selection!
Glad you enjoyed the options!
Game was a bit hard to understand at first but got better after watching a YouTube on it.
I loved the speediness of my crates arrival and the game arrived in good condition. My first game however was a roll and write game and I'm not typically a fan of those. I hope my next game will appeal a bit more to my taste or I might need to change my subscription from surprise to let me choose..but I like being surprised lol
Hi Elise -- we are sorry to hear roll & writes are not your favorite style of game. Can you please provide us more about your preferred tastes and we will try to choose one that align better with your preferences? Alternatively, if you would like to switch so you to choose the games each month please let us know and we'd be happy to update your account for you!
Waited awhile to receive a box to give my husband for father day. Spent around 55$ thinking I’d receive multiple games. But instead received one 20$ game. Sadly disappointed.
We are so sorry to hear you were disappointed with your box. For our boxes you receive one featured game each month, and the boxes begin in the month following the month you sign up. We apologize if there was any confusion on the onset of the subscription.
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 love this subscription so much! I ended up with an awesome collection of games that my friends and I just LOVE
