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.
This sub ships out in a plain box depending on the size of your games. Inside is just what you are getting and nothing more.
They included a card for a Kickstarter campaign for a new card game.
They have an info card that tells you a little about the game and what bonus item is included for the month. Unfortunately I didn’t receive the second item. I emailed them about it and they said it was an error on the card and there shouldn’t have been anything extra but they would send me something in my next box to make up for it, which I thought was nice of them.
This is a two player game for 13 and over. It takes about 45 minutes to play. The goal is to get as much candy as possible in matching colours. Once you reach a certain level you get a medal card. First to three medals wins.
The month had a value of $27.90, taking Canadian prices from Amazon. I changed my preferences on the site to be more board game heavy instead of card game but it doesn’t seem to have made much of a difference. Now if I can just convince Hubby to play with me we’ll be all set.
