While's September's box may not have seemed the most customized, October's Awesome Pack Big Kid Pack was 100% me. 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 October, the main game was Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas Munchkin ($24.95 value) from Steve Jackson Games. If you have never played Munchkin, you need to! It is crazy fun and great for friends who do not mind a little backstabbing. This version is based on The Nightmare Before Christmas movie and looks totally awesome.
For the smaller games, I received 3 card games. First we have MindTrap Shadow Mysteries (a $8.95 value) from Outset Media. I love mystery games, so this sounds totally cool. In roughly the same vein, I also received Dark Stories (a $9.99 value) from Z-Man Games. My final card game was Scopa (a $10.99 value) also from Outset Media, which is an Italian card game.
No collectibles this time since I received 3 smaller games, but due to an issue last month, I received a Something Extra Awesome (aka a bonus game), Marvel TCG: Spider-Man Vs. Doc-Ock 2-Player Starter Set (a $8.00 value) from Upper Dck. For Awesome Pack goodies, I received two bookmarks.
This was definitely, so far, the most awesome Awesome Pack! Not the highest value Awesome Pack, but it still came in at $62.88 value, and I got it all for $44.95, which included shipping. I still got a great deal, but even better, got amazingly awesome games. 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.)
