Game Box Monthly is a subscription box that sends you out a new tabletop board or card game every month. They say they will ask you about your preferences and what you already own so they can not send you duplicates but that did not happen with me. I did find the spot later on their website though. Boxes start at $25.00 a month but do go down with longer plans. Shipping is $10.00 a month, which is more than I would normally want to pay but I signed up for this one when they had a great deal on (50% off) and that balanced out everything so I went for it. I love playing games and though it’s been a struggle to do with the kids being little and needy right now I’m hoping to get back into it soon.
There is a sticker letting you know what’s inside the plain box.
The inside was a surprise since the card telling me about the game covered everything.
The game this month is Sutakku. This is selling for $14.16 on Amazon right now. The game is for ages 14+ and while it can be played by one person it is a multi-player game as well. It takes about 15 minutes to complete a game. The object of the game is to stack dice to get the highest point total. Of course if you topple your stack you get no points. This might be a fun one to play.
The bonus item this month are Metallic Die from MDG. They are solid zinc and finished in gold, silver, and bronze shades. These are worth about $15.00 and are three different types of die.
The month had a value of $29.16, which again, if I’d have paid full price for the box would have not covered everything with shipping. Thankfully I got that deal. I changed my preferences on the site to be more board game heavy instead of card game but I think that was after this was shipped so we’ll see if it makes a difference for next month. It has not but I guess this isn’t a card game so maybe they did. Now if I can just convince Hubby to play with me we’ll be all set.
