What is Board Game Bin?
In concept, Board Game Bin is the best place to discover board games and tabletop game products to buy for everyone's game night! In practice, we strive to work with tabletop designers, creators, publishers, and product producers to bring the best games, accessories, and products that this industry has to offer to customers around the world.
Imagine for a moment...
It's Tuesday morning and your friends have just tasked you with hosting a board game night. Although its now the last thing on your mind, the ambient noise of your office starts to ring more loudly as the work day is just beginning.
You start biting your nails as the anticipation of hosting such a night both excites and terrifies you at the same time. "What if I pick the wrong game?" you think to yourself.
In the distance, your boss' voice echoes off the walls as she slams the phone down from a frustrating phone call. You cower a little as your inner monologue continues to swirl around you, "What will we talk about?"
A couple of your co-workers are discussing their lunch plans in the copy room just behind you as you notice the bead of sweat racing down your cheek. "What will my friends snack on?" you continue internally.
You briefly check your phone as if the answers could be there, only to be interrupted by a notification from Cheryl, who's looking for the board meeting packets to hand out before your presentation. "Oh no! How can I make sure that I teach the game correctly!?" you exclaim aloud as the entire office is now staring at you.
But seriously, it's ok. Board Game Bin is here to help.
Established in 2018
The concept of Board Game Bin began its life as a Startup Weekend hackathon project hosted by Techstars in the small mountain city of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Not only did we get second place by the judges, we were also able to onboard our first clients over the short two day weekend!
So, why are we launching 3 years later?
To make a long story short, we pivoted a little, defined our mission, recruited a great team, rounded out the concept, worked out a few kinks, and starting creating some great content!
Today, and every day, we are proud to share our vision.
