How would you rate
Board Game Crate
"Nice surprise through the post each month. Would definitely recommend taking the time to edit the profile section with types of games you have/prefer."
"I think your algorithm should check the rating that is given in BGG, if any.
I finally received the package, with a slow delivery (not your fault of course, but the local carrier). When I opened it though, I got Power Grid, which is a highly rated game, but I give it a 6/10. On BGG that states "OK Game". And an OK game isn't what I'd go and purchase.
Also, I got Hanabi, which I already own. And it's marked as "owned" on the geek site, and in "My collection" here on board game crate site."
Thanks very much for your review. It's all helping us improve! :)
When we pick games for our crate we do check each and every BGG rating. We will never include a game in our crate that isn't rated above 6.0 and if it's rated between 6.0 and 6.5 then we have to have played it and really enjoyed it, otherwise it doesn't go anywhere near our crate!
As you say, Power Grid is a highly-rated game, currently 7.91/10 on BGG.
I'm really sorry that you received Hanabi in your crate, which you say is a game you already have.
Please do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll work out why Hanabi was assigned to you.
"Great game in a box each month."
"The Board Game Crate has allowed me to try games that I would not have tried and find some true gems."
"I love the surprise each month, and getting introduced to new games."
"A fantastic service provider by people who really cares about getting it right. Consistently good value, we always look forward to the next crate with great excitement. Can't recommend it enough."
"I think Boardgame Crates are great for new gamers and I am genuinely of the opinion that over the coming year or so the fine tuning that these guys are doing will make it a great service for all users. Thanks for the crates!"
"Excellent service and really happy with the games in the crate. Got a games that I never would have thought of buying but we all really enjoy playing. Would recommend."
"Been a subscriber now for the past three months and already received classics of the genre, award winning games and some of my new favourites.
Would highly recommend this service to anyone."
"Iv found its a great way of getting games that I ordinarily wouldn't pick up for myself. Iv found some of my favourite games through it"
"Value for money might not be up there, when shipping internationally, but the selection of games were of good quality."
"Really fantastic game choices would recommend to anyone 👍"
"I’ve had no problems at all. Every game has been a hit.
I only question the random bag of dice I get with every crate. I have more dice than I know what to do with..."
"there were only 2 game, which is ok if they are good, but one was a create your own game kit, for me that isn't a game @"
It's the Board Game Crate team here.
I think the game you're talking about is Blank. (https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/231824/blank)
It is a game in itself, and each time you play the winner of each game can create a custom card. The game should have come with 72 cards, of which 36 are fully illustrated cards to be played in the game, and the other 36 are there for the winners of each game, to make their own rules and expand the game to your very own unique set of cards.
If we've got that wrong, or if you want to have a chat with us about the game then get in touch at email@example.com.

"Got exactly the game I wanted! And it just happened to be a few days before my birthday, so the timing was great as well :)
Very happy with my first board game crate :)"
"Very pleased - great games and excellent value for money! Love the surprise element."
"Excellent choice of games. Have been really pleased in the last couple of crates to get games from my wishlist. It is good to know the system works."
"The games you get are brilliant and so far have matched what I pay for the crate. My only small issue is how long they take to arrive. You pay at the start of the month and you may not get it until the end of the month."
"Great couple of games this month."
"A wonderful service that sends me things from my wish list when it can. I've enjoyed every game I've received with this service."
