If you’re new to board games then our “Modern Classics” Starter Pack is just right for you. It’s a three month Board Game Crate subscription and over the course of three months you’ll receive three Board Game Crates. Within each crate will be a “modern classic” board game and a second “modern classic” board or card game. The contents of the box will always be of a higher value than the crate – this we guarantee!
This prepaid subscription is for three months and will begin with the crate due to be sent in the following month.
What board games could I receive?
For this package we have specially selected a group of board games that we consider to be “modern classics”. These are games that nearly all board game players will have in their collection. Most of the games we regard as a “modern classic” will have won one of the most prestigious awards in board gaming, the Spiel des Jahres, and will have started most board gamers on their way to starting their own collection.
Here’s the full list of our “Modern Classics”:
- Ticket To Ride (Original or Europe)
- Castles of Burgundy
- 7 Wonders
- Puerto Rico
- Power Grid
- Star Realms
- Love Letter
- Lost Cities
Once your three-month subscription is complete you will have six games from the list above, and well on the way to building your board game collection.
If you already own some of the games on the list, then don’t worry. As long as you let us know what games you already own then we’ll never send you a duplicate! If you own all or the majority of the games listed, and we are unable to obtain copies of games you do not have, then we will assign games from the general pool. Don’t worry though, take a look at our previous crates and you’ll see we send only the best games!
When will I receive my first crate?
If you purchase this prepaid subscription on the 1st of the month, let’s say it’s January, then your prepaid subscription will begin with the February crate.
If you purchase this prepaid subscription on the 30th of the month, let’s say it’s January too, then your prepaid subscription will still begin with the February crate.
Every prepaid subscription will begin with the crate sent in the following month. This is because the monthly crate sign-up cycle closes at the end of each month.
