$50 quarterly package will include three party or family titles
Subscription boxes for gaming are beginning to pop up all over the place – from Board Game Bento in the US to Board Game Crate over here in the UK – but now Hasbro looks like it will become the first big tabletop publisher to start directly offering its own bundles of games to players.
Hasbro Gaming Crate has only been announced for the US at the moment, but marks a major step into a realm that has largely been dominated by small start-ups or even just passionate individuals until now.
Unlike the monthly offering of Board Game Bento or Board Game Crate, Hasbro’s box will be quarterly, arriving every three months for the price of $50.
At least to begin with, there will be two flavours of box: one including more accessible, kid-friendly family games and the other adult-orientated party titles.
The first Hasbro Gaming Crate will arrive this summer. There’s no word on the possibility of a UK release yet but, if this takes off, it wouldn’t be surprising to see more publishers trying to get in on the idea – would you be interested in signing up to get the biggest new releases from Fantasy Flight, Plaid Hat or Czech Games Edition?
