Playtested like a boss

Our in-house board game experts (that us!) 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!

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.

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 > 6.0

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.

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 6.0+ on Board Game Geek. We also include eagerly anticipated expansion packs and games that any collection can’t be without!

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.

We pick from only the very best games.

We analyse your board game collection

Our bespoke, in-house AI, which we call ‘Dirk’, will walk through your entire collection and analyse the games you have, to discover your most loved categories and mechanics of board games.

Whether you prefer fantasy card-games that feature variable player powers and area control, or family orientated American-West action programming games (that’s Smash-up or Colt Express!), our Dirk will match them all and then tell you your top ten most owned categories and mechanics from your collection.

Customise your crate to how you want it

With our custom crate preference options, you can define how closely we follow your existing library when we select the games for your crate, and we all we can to make sure that you get games that fit those preferences. You can also define the minimum number of players each game has to support so you can be assured of receiving games you can play the moment they arrive.

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.
