Board Game Atlas Acquires Board Game Prices

5 points

We’re excited to announce that Board Game Atlas has acquired Board Game Prices—the best resource to find the lowest board game prices across online stores.

Over the past 12 years Board Game Prices has grown and become an amazing resource for board game enthusiasts to find the best prices and ultimately get to play more board games. When we first got into the hobby we always used their site and price comparison tool to get the most bang for our buck.

Over the last 10 months since we launched Board Game Atlas, we’ve been talking with Board Game Prices and we’re excited to be able to bring all our resources together to help further our mission of making board gaming more fun.

What does this mean for you?

It means even better pricing information for both of the websites and faster development of new features. We’ve been working on a lot of new features like a marketplace to sell your games, getting notified when new games are available, and a lot more!

Are both websites staying around?

Yes. We’re going to continue to deliver the unique values of both www.boardgameatlas.com and www.boardgameprices.com because they each have loyal and fast growing audiences. One of the key ways Board Game Atlas has skyrocketed in its user growth has been to talk to its users. So we’ll be talking to you to find out what would be best going forward. It could be to keep both around forever or to merge the best technology from each under one brand. We’ll have to see what you say! So please let us know.

Where can I get more details?

You can see more information about each company, some history, and statistics in the media kit. I’ll also be posting with further developments on www.boardgameatlas.com.

I would say eventually a merger of the sites makes the most sense, but you don't have to rush it. Make sure combining does not detract from the experience of why people use either site.

I think one big benefit of starting a new community is that there's no limit to making big changes/risks!
