IMG_20151019_115040Battle Bin is a monthly (mostly table top & card) gaming subscription box that always includes at least 3 playable games while sticking to a specific theme. This month’s theme is “Battle and Brews” so expect drinking and dwarves!

Battle Bin arrived in a large box with a surprising weight to it. The box also features the Battle Bin logo and colors around the entire box.

A pen & paper RPG that’s based around drinking? You bet!

The usual RPG elements like saving throws, dice & character sheets are there but the twist is you have to chug your drink when your character dies.

As a awesome bonus, Battle Bin has included the official Drinking Quest pint glass!

IMG_20151019_115421Iron & Ale (Table Forged)

This Dwarven-themed drinking card game comes in a high quality box and includes 3 sets of cards and a dice.

The fun of “Iron & Ale” is that while you’re playing as a Dwarf character, you’re benefited by your real life skills in the actions you have to take.

Extremly high quality replicas of what Dwarven coins would be like. They look and feel like real coins and have a surprising amount of weight and detail to them.
