How Does The Unbox & Game Sweepstakes Work?

Every month we give away $1,000 worth of board games through our sweepstakes. We advertise that sweepstakes quite a bit, including on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube. This invites a lot of questions about how this works, so we figured we'd take the time to address some of those and talk about how the membership works. And yes, we will get to the question that we like to answer the most, "Is the Unbox & Game Sweepstakes a scam?"

The truth is we are board game fans and we love being able to give away board games to other people who will enjoy them. That's why we chose this business and will continue to be the best board game sweepstakes on the internet.

For one, the membership is only one way to enter the sweepstakes. It's a great value by itself, with tons of benefits and discounts including:
  • VIP Gift Cards at our online store, where you will find everything from our board game t-shirts to stickers or pins and where every dollar spent gets you an entry into the sweepstakes.
  • Automatic entries into every one of our board game giveaways.
  • Special deals & discounts periodically from board game retailers.

As mentioned above, you can always enter the sweepstakes by purchasing anything in our online store and getting one entry for each dollar spent along with some killer board game merchandise. We put a lot of pride into our gear since we wear it all the time. Soft cotton blend t-shirts, super comfy warm hoodies, and some must have items for board game fans. Shop and get entered!

As is the case with any legal sweepstakes in the United States, there's no purchase necessary to enter or win. You can mail in entries as well, there's complete details located in the official rules.
