Playtested like a boss

Our experts play-test every game before we send it out to make sure it’s great. Actually, it’s just an excuse to play more games, it’s a perk of the job!

How you want it

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

Top games and expansions

If we can include brand new releases, then we will! We like to keep right up to date with the industry, with new games and new expansion packs, so you always get the greatest games.

Reviews, loves and likes

We love great reviews and likes so if you have any questions or have an issue with your subscription just get in touch! We’ll get straight back to you.

How does the Board Game Crate work?

dice-1You tell us what games you’ve already got – through Board Game Geek or “My Game Collection”.

dice-2We pick games, expansion packs and accessories that fit with your preferences, and then pop them in a box.

dice-3The box arrives at your door, normally around about the middle of each month.

What's in a crate?

We only pick from the finest board games available so you’re certain to never receive a bad game. Our team play all the games we send out, and we check review scores on popular sites such as Board Game Geek before adding games into a crate!

We love board games as much as you do. There are regular staff competitions, TableTop lunches and gaming evenings where we try out games before we consider including them in a crate.

Each crate will include at least 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!

And the RRP of the contents of the crate are guaranteed to be more than the cost. So you’re always guaranteed great value!

We pick from only the very best games.

Only the very best will do!

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 things 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 both well known and independent publishers. We’ll also include eagerly anticipated expansion packs, and games that any collection can’t be without!

All our crates are shipped directly to you and the cost of your subscription includes all the postage and packaging – there’s no hidden costs. And you can cancel any time you like – you can even take a holiday if you’ve got too much to play.

Finding the games you haven't got

We’ve built our own custom software to check the board games you have, find the board games you haven’t got, and work out what fits in your crate, in-line with your preferences and crate customisation options. If you have a Board Game Geek profile then we can grab your games library from there or use our Games Collection engine to build your library quickly.

We make sure the board games allocated to your crate are the best the industry can offer. We won’t fill your crate with nonsense, we make sure they’re games you will love playing again and again.

Pleasantly surprised with my crate, 2 games (Waggle Dance and One Night Ultimate Vampire) , 2 dice (who doesn’t need more dice) , one zombie and one wereweolf meeple, a small bag of Haribo Starmix (SUGAR!), an ad for another board game and an info card. Considering many mystery boxes like these don’t really fulfil their promise and end up being utter tat, this is excellent! I will be continuing my subscription for another month at least. I only wish I’d known if I uploaded an unboxing video I could have earned a free crate!

I was so excited to give this to my game-loving boyfriend for Christmas, and the folks at Board Game Crate were wonderful about helping to make sure that my belated purchase made it on time, which was amazing! The box itself was great, some candies to snack on, 3 snazzy mini-dice, and two games – Grifters and Spyfall (I guessed a ‘cops and robbers’ theme!). We, being two people, have spent the past few days enjoying Grifters, and look forward to bringing Spyfall to the local board game night to try out. It was so great to see how excited he was to get the games! We’ve set ourselves up with a subscription now, and are planning to gift a family member with a subscription as well. If you’re looking for new, interesting, high quality games, definitely worth giving this crate subscription a go. We’re looking forward to seeing what we get next month! 😀 Thanks so much!

Just a quick email to say thank you for your crates so far… Power grid and Camel up from our first crate went down incredibly well around Christmas with my family. Also, thank you for adding Zimby Mojo onto your board game list… that’s a game i really have to sit down at some point and read the instructions for! Thanks again and looking forward to the next crate.
