In the Box: May 2015 Awesome Pack

This post is a little late, but May's Awesome Pack Big Kid Pack totally delivered once again! The subscription is $44.99 a month and you can choose the Big Kid option (for those without kids - like me), or the Family option.  Their site does not have referral links set up yet, nor can you log into your account yet, but they do have a referral program, so if you do decide after reading my review to try it, I would very much appreciate if you told them you heard about it from me, rickimc [at] aol [dot] com.
For May, the main game was Akrotiri (a $29.99 value) from Z-Man Games. I was first introduced to Z-Man Games by one of our local comic book stores, and they do make awesome stuff.  Akrotiri is a two-player game, which is perfect since it is just my husband and me, where you play ancient Greeks exploring the Aegean Sea.

Instead of any collectibles this month, everything else I received was game-related.  While it was not the main board game, the most expensive items this month was a special edition Firefly RPG Rulebook from 2013 GenCon (a $49.99 for the non-special edition version.  While I am not a tabletop RPGer, I have friends who are who also love Firefly.  Next up is another Z-Man game, Pocket Battles Fantasy #1 Orcs vs Elves (a $14.99 value).  I am super excited for this!  It is another 2-player game (score!) and it is the first of the fantasy series, and I love fantasy!  Last up was an expansion pack for Munchkin, Munchkin Gets Promoted (a $4.95 value).  I love Munchkin, but I do not have the original version, so I will have to wait to get that before I can play this (this is my fault because I did check Munchkin on my original survey because I had a version of it).

While April's Big Kid Awesome Pack was a little lighter than some other months, it was no less awesome!  The items actually added up t0 an amazing $99.92 value, and I got it all for $44.95, which included shipping.  If you would like to subscribe, once again, I ask that you say you heard it from me, rickimc [at] aol [dot] com.  (Please note: as games and collectibles can vary in price based on demand, I tried to take the price from the manufacturers site whenever possible.)
