Holiday Gifting Guide 2019

We’ll keep this list updated over the next few days

Planning to gift something board game themed but don’t want to spend ₹₹₹ on big boxed games? Stuck on what to get for Secret Santa?

Here’s a guide to find boardgame-related things in India for ~ Rs. 1000.

Board Games


Straight up board games that are around this budget that you can get from Indian sellers.

This is not an exhaustive list but a list of games/retailers we know and recommend.

Boardway

Bored Game Company

Amazon India

Print & Play (PnP)

Why buy games when you can download the PDFs/Images of games to print and cut yourself?

Note: We don’t encourage making PnPs of games that don’t explicitly allow you to print it yourself

Indian Games

Accessories


Sometimes the best gift is an board game accessory that people wouldn’t buy themselves.

Ideas

  • Card sleeves (you’ll need to know which game to get the right size)
  • Playmats
  • Dice sets (for Dungeons & Dragons, for example)
  • Dice trays
  • Dice towers
  • Token replacements (like metal coins)
  • Token storage

Places to buy accessories

Amazon India - Dice sets, XXL Mousepads (as a playmat which we recommended earlier)
Bored Game Company - Card Sleeves, Dice sets, Dice trays, etc
Boardway - Card Sleeves

Get Creative


Board Games don’t get the same sort of love that other hobbies/interests too, especially in India - so making custom merchandise like a t-shirt, poster, stickers, etc that are board game themed are great ideas!
