So how did this all happen? (from the Founder)
I have always been a big fan of good board games and spending time with friends and family. A few years ago, my girlfriend (now wife), wanted to get me a "board game of-the-month" present for my birthday. When she went to look for this gift idea online, it didn't exist!
Fast-forward a few years, and I was playing several board games with friends over the holidays. We were all having so much fun, and one of my friends pointed out that I had all of these great, unique games that no one in our group had heard about before. She suggested that I should create an "of-the-month" club for good board games. And with that, UnboxBoardom was born!
It wasn't so long ago that people actually interacted with one another. Before people were connected to their electronics 24/7, there were board games. Families didn't sit around the dinner table on their cell phones, they had family game nights. Friends wouldn't sit in silence and watch TV, claiming they were "hanging out." They got together for a night of games!
I've always enjoyed the competition and laughs I shared with friends and family while playing various games. Sometimes, it was the thrill of competition when I came from behind to beat my mom at her favorite game. Other times, it was the excitement of receiving a new game for my birthday and playing it for the first time with my cousins. Some of my most fond childhood, and even adult, memories have come while playing board games.
My goal with creating UnboxBoardom was to give others the same opportunity of collecting, sharing, and discovering new board games with their family and friends. I can't wait for you to join me on this journey of doing what I love..... It's time to unplug and play! Let's get started!
