For those of you who have been trying to find a Gran Board 2 in vain for the past year, relief is in site as the new Gran Board 3 has been released. Evidently the reason the Gran Board 2 become so scarce is that they halted production on the 2 so they could ramp up production for the 3. In any case, it’s now here, and you’re probably wondering “what are the differences”? The Gran Board 2 was already the best online electronic dart board on the market in my opinion.
Gran Board 2 vs Gran Board 3
So first off, what are the differences between the 2 and the 3? Well basically it appears like they took the Gran Board 2 and added LED capability to the board. This video below does a really good job of showing the differences:
Basically, a lot of display effects around the outside and that’s about it. They’re very cool, but if you’re a Gran Board 2 owner it’s probably not worth upgrading unless you really want the LED functionality or you have kids who would be a lot more amazed by it.
Where can you buy it? Well luckily so far it doesn’t appear to have the same out of stock problems that the Gran Board 2 had over the past year. It’s actually available now through my Amazon affiliate link below:
Since I have a Gran Board 2 and kids, I’m very on the fence about upgrading. Since I just got the Gran Board 2 in December it’s a little early for me to be switching it out already. 🙂
If you haven’t seen my review of the Gran Board 2, it’s here:
Basically, it’s the best online dart board there is right now (well, until the 3 took its place). I’ve had a ton of fun with it since I got it and my kids have too. In fact they’ve about broken all of my darts, which is the next thing I need to invest in…good darts that don’t fall apart constantly.
