Awesome Pack Subscription Box Review – December 2014
Awesome Pack is brand new subscription box that focuses on board games and other family fun activities. They offer a Family Pack if you need items that would work for young and older kids, or a Big Kid Pack for older kids and adults. (This review is of the Big Kid Pack).
They also offer customization and allow you to let them know what board games you already have so you don’t get repeats.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Awesome Pack
The Cost: $44.99 (US) ($52.49 CAD)
The Products: A board game in every box, plus other toys and activities (customized to your family).

Each box comes with a letter detailing the items included for your family. (And they threw in some stickers too!)
Marvel and Frozen Mashems – Value $4 total
That baby Olaf is adorable!
Hero Clix Captain America Figure – Value $4
In addition to the board games, Awesome Pack also includes some additional fun items – this month they are all blind-box items.
We just went to Simpsons World at Universal Studios a few months ago (it was awesome), and I thought we got all the Simpsons merchandise we could possibly want, but apparently not! This is already up on my husband’s desk!
Loot Card Game – Value $9.50
After reading the reviews on Amazon, I’m excited to play this game with friends over the holiday break! It works great for kids 10 and up, but works just for adults too. From what I learned, the instructions for gameplay are simple enough to start quickly, and the game involves strategy and math.
This is another well-reviewed game on Amazon. It is designed for kids 13 and up, and is suitable just for adults too.
Verdict: I think this is a really well-curated box, and after seeing all the amazing reviews of the two games on Amazon, it’s clear they are making sure to only send out quality games. The value of this box is about $42 (that’s counting the sale prices on Amazon). The price of the box is $44.99, so it’s a little under, but I think this box is more about fun and discovering new awesome games, than necessarily getting a high value compared to what you paid.
I would recommend it for a family with kids, or just adults since they customize the boxes! What do you think of Awesome Pack?
