In the Box: September 2015 Awesome Pack Big Kid Pack

I will admit that I thought the September Awesome Pack Big Kid Pack was not as awesome as past awesome packs.  I know this was most likely due to some shipping issues from their suppliers. However, they still tried to customize it as much as possible without delaying it any further, and it was a still a great pack. 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 September, the main game was Walking Dead: Don't Look Back ($20.00 value) from Cryptozoic Entertainment. Cryptozoic makes some fun games based off of TV shows.  At first, I was like, okay, I do not watch Walking Dead.  Then I saw it was for 1-4 players which means I can play it solo, so score!
The first of the smaller games was also based on an entertainment licence, Mars Attacks: The Martian Takedown (a $9.99 value) from Steve Jackson Games.  Now, Mars Attacks is more my speed, so that interested me, but reading the back of the box did not excite me at all.  Now the second game, Trixo (a $14.95 value) from YNGI sounds exactly like how it is described on my info card - "seemingly simple awesome game!"

My collectibles this time included an Assassin's Creed III Connor Collectible Bust (a $19.99 value) from Imports Dragon.  do not play Assassin's Creed, so this is totally not me.  Now this Disney Tinkerbell Jakz (a $2.75 value) from Tomy was really cute.  For Awesome Pack goodies, I received two magnets (which I forgot to picture).

While not the most awesome, still a great Awesome Pack !  The items actually added up to an amazing $67.68 value, and I got it all for $44.95, which included shipping.  Not the highest value one I have received, but I really love the games this time around.  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.).
