This is a review of the Big Kid pack.

It's AWESOME time!

First look!

Info sheet

There are always a few extras included, like stickers, magnets, or this poster. I've received this poster twice now. I might put this one up at work, just to be funny.

Byzantio ($38.99)
Byzantio is a game of medieval intrigue in the east in which players take the role of the heads of the main Byzantine dynasties, and scheme to choose the successor to the imperial throne.
This sounds a bit like Risk, but in the Byzantium era.

Munchkin Loot Letter ($8.95)
Munchkin Loot Letter is a game of risk, deduction, and luck for 2-4 players. Loot Letter’s 16 cards provide hours of fun for kids and adults while they scramble to grab all the loot and leave their friends in the dust. 
This is for ages 10 plus, so I won't be able to play it with my nieces just yet.

Vinyl Sugar DORBZ Guardians of the Galaxy Vinyl Collectible - Ronan ($8.17)
From the Guardians of the Galaxy film comes this Guardians of the Galaxy Ronan Dorbz Vinyl Figure. Measuring approximately 3-inches tall, Drax comes packaged in a double-sided window display box! This Ronan Dorbz Vinyl figure makes a great addition to any Marvel or Guardians of the Galaxy fan's collection! I'm not a fan of collectibles like this, so this will be gifted. 

Ultra Pro Deck Protector Sleeves ($4.72)
Clear Deck Protectors with Ultra PRO's hologram quality seal. Stores and protects standard sized cards. 50-count pack. All Ultra PRO Deck Protectors are archival-safe and acid-free. 
This would be a useful item for people that collect cards.

Cthulhu Dice ($6.95)
Cthulhu Dice lets you drive your rivals mad . . . very, very quickly. Players take turns rolling the big, beautiful, custom 12-sided die, embossed with tentacles, Elder Signs, and more. Destroy your opponents' sanity! Better yet, steal it. But watch out for Cthulhu – when he comes up, he takes sanity from everyone! 18 glass Sanity marbles are included. Lose all your marbles and you're mad. The last sane cultist wins . . . unless everyone goes mad together. Then Cthulhu wins!This one sounds like it could be a quick and fun game.

My March Awesome Pack for big  kids included three games and two collectible items. The approximate retail value is over $67 CDN. All the games are new to me. They are all quick games that require at least 2 players, which is what I requested. After each mailing, Awesome Pack sends a survey looking for feedback about your Pack. You can tell them what you liked and what you didn't like. I will have to be sure to mention that I prefer to not receive collectibles. They are pretty good about customizing packs to suit you and your family.
