Arcade Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon December 2015 - shirt

Just Cause 3 Shirt – Value $10?

This month’s shirt features Just Cause 3. The latest release of the series came out last month, and while I haven’t played the third installment, I have played the first – and it’s a fun and action-packed series!

Arcade Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon December 2015 - Last of Us Titans

The Last Of Us Titans – Value $15-20?

The featured item this month is an exclusive The Last Of Us Titans set! This two pack features both Joel and Ellie. It’s a really cool 2-pack, and what I’ve noticed is that they’re a little smaller than the normal Titans. If you haven’t played this game, just do it!

Arcade Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon December 2015 - patch and bank

Street Fighter V Patch – Value $5?

This is another exclusive this month. Get ready for Street Fighter V this February with this patch.

Space Invaders Tin Bank – Value $5?

This little Space Invaders arcade machine is a coin bank – this one is cool and useful for me!

Arcade Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon December 2015 - Cards and notebook

Pirate Cats in Space Notebook – Value $2-3?

This little exclusive arcade machine is a notepad.

Classic Console Casino Cards – Value $5?

These cards feature classic games like Mario, Duck Hunt, and Zelda. I’ve received a decent amount of cards in boxes in the past 2+ years, but this one definitely brought a smile to my face while shuffling through them

Here’s a quick shuffle through some of the cards!

G2A card – Value $3

This last item wasn’t mentioned anywhere on the card. I’ve never heard of the site, but they sell digital games on multiple formats, like Steam. This is a voucher for $3 towards any purchase.

Verdict: There were definitely a couple of items I liked from the December Arcade Block, but overall, I wasn’t thrilled with the box. I love that they got an exclusive vinyl for the box – that’s always a win, but the other items kind of felt like filler items to me, and since they are all exclusive items – you really can’t get a value on each item.

What did you think of the December Arcade Block?

  1. This was my first block. I ordered December 15th 2015 and just received it January 13th 2016. I will subscribe to one more block this January and decide to cancel.

  2. Did anybody else get the card that says this box contains an exclusive Mortal Kombat item but no item and, it’s not on the Item review card. I just thought what?

  3. That GIF(?) is awesome. I love little details like that! Just like I love that Haley has pictures of herself using/wearing the items. It’s nice that each of you puts their own “stamp” on their reviews. (:

  4. Is it terrible that I still look at your reviews before my box has even arrived? Not much here for me this month, but the cards are nice. My friends and coworkers love my “extras”. ?

    • I also did the same. I finally got my horror box but didn’t get my classic box. I was also missing an item in my box. beware of this subscription box, they are not very good with customer service.

      • I agree that this company is not the best for customer service.

  5. Wow, those cards are super awesome!
