Just as last month's Awesome Pack Big Kid Pack was early, the January one was late (which they did email about it). 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 December, the main game was Patchistory (a $60.00 value) from Stuntkite. I have never heard of Stuntkite and their catalog is really small, but this looks like a lot of fun, especially for my husband who is a history buff. It looks like if you order from the publisher's site, you will also get 6 extra promo tiles.
Both smaller games were card based. First, we have The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Deck Building Game (a $40.00 value) from Cryptozoic Entertainment. Cryptozoic makes awesome licensed games, so this should be a good one. We also have Royal Flushter (a $5.99 value) from Patch (which has recently become Play Monster). The name change is probably why I cannot find the game on the publisher's website - they are probably shifting products.
No collectibles, but I did get an activity this month - a Silver Engraving Kit, Wolf Moon (a $5.49 value) from Royal & Langnickel. This looks kinda fun, but I don't think I have the artistic talent. I'll still try it, though. This month's Awesome Pack swag was a cute postcard.
This month was a total hit for me with Awesome Pack, and one of the highest value ones yet. It came in at an $111.48 value, and I paid $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.)
