About Us

In November 2021 The Big Box Board Games started a new chapter with brand new owners. The primary location for our shop has also moved to the Hermanus Waterfront where we have games available to buy and play at Lemonicious and Skybar.

The new owners (from left to right) Annemie de Klerk, Henk Burnett and Anke Deyzel embarked on a journey of discovery and the amazing gift of experiencing how life changing boardgames could be.

We have a passion for learning new games and teaching anyone and everyone we meet about boardgames.

Here are some fun facts about us:
