Board Game Bento October 2017 Unboxing/Review

This month’s Board Game Bento box theme is “Pop-Culture” and includes three games that are all co-operative; The Goonies Adventure Card Game, Rick and Morty:Total Rickall Card Game, and Star Trek Panic. As always this is not a review on the games themselves, but of the actual contents of the box and the quality of this Board Game Bento. But, you can look forward to the games being reviewed in the future.

The Goonies Adventure Card Game by Albino Dragon

In the Goonies game, you play as those lovable scamps from the Goon Dooks, as you try and save your town by searching for One-Eyed Willy’s treasure! You have to work together to clear obstacles, defeat the Fratellis, and discover a way to the treasure.

Players: 1-4

Playtime: 30-45 Minutes

Cost: $34.99

Rick and Morty: Total Rickall Card Game by Cryptozoic

Based on the hilarious Rick and Morty episode of the same name. Players work together to figure out which zany character is a lifelong friend or a disgusting parasite. The game also has the added fun of having an advance mode, where you split up into two teams, with one team playing as the parasites and the other team being the real group that is trying to root out all of the parasites.

Players: 2-5

Playtime: 30 minutes

Cost: $12.00

Star Trek Panic by USAopoly

Star Trek Panic is a themed version of the original Castle Panic. In this version players must defend the U.S.S. Enterprise from waves of enemy attacks. The game also adds a little extra flare with the addition of mission cards that have unique challenges to add to the game, as well as, character cards based on the original series characters.

Players: 1-6

Playtime: 90-120 minutes

Cost: $39.95


Final Impressions:

I have been very pleased with my subscription to Board Game Bento so far, and this month is no exception. It came with three great games, with the co-operative play style that I am a big fan of!

Each Board Game Bento box advertises at least an $80 value. After adding up the game prices, based on my current finds for them, I got a value of $87.94, putting it at just above the advertised $80 minimum value. But, the box still seems to be worth the $50 subscription value, especially since it really helps to introduce gamers to games they might not otherwise buy.

Next month’s Board Game Bento theme is “Thinkers” and if you are interested in signing up, here is an easy link to their website, and if you sign up through the link you can help us continue providing you with more great gaming content!
