Cratejoy’s Fandom Celebration: Part 3 -UnboxBoardom

 In General Geekiness

We’ve made it to part three of  Cratejoy and myself celebrating all things fandom this summer! In part 1 we checked out Harry Potty goodies in the Accio box. In part 2 we traveled through the looking glass with Alice in Wonderland from Nerd Post. Today we’re celebrating board games with UnboxBoardom.

Get your dice, cards, and strategy ready!

Before even receiving my UnboxBoardom box, I first received an email allowing me to choose the game I wanted to get this month. It included 3 options with photos, a description, and basic playing information about each game.

Like the other Cratejoy boxes I’ve received, this one arrived in the mail very well packed to ensure the contents were not damaged in transit.

Within the box I found my chosen board game for the month, Apotheca.

Apotheca is sold on Amazon for $40, so I definitely feel like the cost of the monthly subscription box was worth it. My favorite parts about this tri-monthly box are that 1. You choose what level of gamer you are 2. You are given the option of which game you want each month.

I enjoyed vetting this month’s 3 game options to finally settle on my choice of Apotheca. As a gamer, I always look to reviews before purchasing a game (if I can’t playtest first) so I appreciated the ability to do so in this instance too.

I won’t be writing up a full review for the board game I received but I did enjoy playing it with my husband. Apotheca is a fast play and is perfect for “game night dessert” or a quickie before dinner.

The game also has a number of play variations to keep things fresh and fun.

I also really enjoyed the artwork of the game. Artwork is something that can be the ‘cherry on top’ of board game play for me and this game was no different. In fact, it was one of the tipping points in my decision process.

As someone who loves to game, this subscription box is a great way to discover new games and grow my collection. It truly is one of my favorites thus far!
