Only the very best games

We like to keep right up to date with new games and new expansion packs, so you always get the greatest games. Every game we send out in our crates has a BGG rating higher than 6.0

Customise your crate

Customise your crate using preferences for game categories, mechanics and the minimum number of players. Choose from a rolling subscription, a pre-paid package or a one-off trial crate.

Build your Wishlists

Tell us which games you’d love to have in your crate and we’ll add those to your crate as a priority when we include the game in our monthly crate. You can also specify games you don’t want too!

Sync your BGG collection

We can download your collection from BGG (or let us know what games you own) to make sure we never send you a game you already have and we’ll check your wishlists for games you want!

How does Board Game Crate work?

one spot on a dieYou tell us what games you’ve already got – by telling us your Board Game Geek username or by adding them to “My Games Collection”.

two spots on a dieWe analyse the games you have, using ‘Dirk’ (our in-house AI) and uncover your most loved board game categories and mechanics.

three spots on a dieYou select your crate preferences and we match games, expansion packs and accessories that fit your preferences, and then add them in your crate.

four spots on a diceWe tell you that your Board Game Crate is on its way, and it’s delivered straight to your door, normally around about the middle of each month.

We pick from only the very best games.

What's in a crate?

Each month your crate will be packed with board games, expansion packs or luxury gaming accessories. We’ll keep track of your collection and always send you games and expansions you haven’t got!

The team here are all avid board-gamers so you’re guaranteed to get great games – focusing on award-winning games from well-known and independent publishers. We check to make sure that every game we send out is rated above 6.0 on Board Game Geek. We also check your wishlists and your “Don’t want” lists so that we always send you games you want.

Each crate will include at least two games, normally one full price board or card game, and either an expansion pack for an existing game in your collection or another full price board or card game, as well as accessories and other gaming goodies that we know you can’t be without.
