USPS has made a new addition to their free boxes, one of those being a flat rate board game box which cost only $16.85 to ship.
What does this mean for the industry? Well, first off it could mean cheaper trades when you are scouring board game geek for a game you haven't been able to get your hands on!
This REALLY excites me because it means that other people are taking notice that the table top industry is growing and that it really is something to be passionate about. When I tell somebody I absolutely LOVE board games, I usually get one of two responses. The first one being along the lines of Nerd. The second one being along the lines of Oh my god me too!
The more often I run in to people that share this hobby with me, the happier I am. You guys, the United States postal service is taking note and accommodating us, this is something to be excited about!
