My family LOVES family game nights, so we were GEEKED to be invited to participate in a review of the subscription service through this blog's affiliation with U.S. Family Guide.

Looking for a Christmas gift that will keep entertaining its recipient long after the holiday season has passed by? is a subscription service that helps keep family game nights fresh by sending something new out each month to play. Who doesn't love getting something fun in the mail and this subscription service provided entertaining games to play throughout the year.  

Each month subscribers can select one of three games featured by to be sent to them or agree to be surprised with the subscription service choosing what will be received based upon a customer profile provided to the company about your family. Last month's selections for example were PhotosynthesisWordoku, or Fuse

In Photosynthesis, take your trees through their life-cycle, from seedling to full bloom to rebirth, and earn light points as their leaves collect energy from the revolving sun’s rays. Carefully pick where you sow and when you grow, as trees in the shadows are blocked from light, and from light points. Players score light points if their trees are in the direct lines of sun rays or taller than the trees blocking them from the sun rays. In a second phase, players use their light points to reserve seeds or trees, then plant or grow them on the board. Points are scored by maturing trees and removing them from the board.

Create as many words as possible using puzzle tiles printed with both letters and symbols. Use letters to make words while balancing symbols to double your score. Crossword and Sudoku come together for tabletop gaming fun.

A real-­‐time cooperative dice game for 2-­‐5 players where friends work together to quickly save a ship from impending doom! Intruders have infiltrated a ship! Their goal: Total Destruction! Twenty bombs have been detected onboard, and the countdown has begun. 

Your elite Bomb Defusal Team (BDT) has been called upon to neutralize the threat. Does your team have what it takes to work through the intricacies of the bombs and defuse them all in time? You'd better get moving, because this game will self-­‐destruct in 10 minutes.

Next month three different games will be available for subscribers to receive. Subscribers who choose their own games must make a selection within 5 days of receiving a notification email which arrives at the beginning of the month or the service defaults to the surprise pick option. Games normally arrive about 2 weeks later around the 15th of the month and the service sends subscribers an email with tracking information as it is in route. 

Selection emails include the following information about the available games:

  • Number of players;
  • Average time the game takes to play;
  • How "family friendly" is the game; 
  • How much complexity is involved; 
  • Is it a good game for groups;
  • The UnboxBoardom team's "insider" thoughts/advice about the game.
Still looking for a last minute Christmas gift? Purchase an subscription and provide information about it in a card. This is a present that will continue delighting recipients well after this year's Christmas presents have all been unwrapped. The subscription service has earned a Geek Daddy nod of approval.
