Deal Alert! In honor of the upcoming annual International Tabletop Day this Saturday, April 28, Amazon is hosting an all-day sale on many tabletop board games. The sale ends at midnight.
There’s a nice assortment of easy kid games, intuitive family games, complex eurogames, and party games.
For kid-friendly games for the under 10 crowd, check out Enchanted Forest, Outfoxed, and Ravensburger Labyrinth.
If you have age 8+ kids and like to play games with the family, you’ll be interested in King of Tokyo, Forbidden Island (and Forbidden Desert), Castle Panic, The Quest for El Dorado, Carcassonne, and Kingdomino (and Queendomino).
If you and your partner are looking for great two player games, look no further than 7 Wonders: Duel. If you do want to look a bit further, check out The Castles of Burgundy, and Caverna: Cave vs Cave.
For light-hearted party games see Dixit, Werewords, and the various Werewolf games.
Finally if your whole gaming group is looking to expand their collection you’ll find lots of great choices: Terraforming Mars, Photosynthesis, 7 Wonders, Arcadia Quest, Dead of Winter, and Five Tribes.
Many of these games are at historic low prices. On the flip side many of the best deals are already selling out, and seeing an instant price hike from third party Amazon sellers. Terraforming Mars was the best deal of the bunch at $35 (50% off), but it has since jumped up to $44 (36% off). It’s a similar story with Palace of Mad King Ludwig and Photosynthesis.
Note that the sale discount is taken off the standard retail MSRP. Amazon’s board game prices are very rarely listed at MSRP to begin with, so the actual sale prices are less impressive than they appear. Use price checking websites such as CamelCamelCamel to determine where these sale prices fall in relation to previous sales and price drops and get the best game for your buck.
The Amazon Tabletop Day sale ends tonight.
