Spy Alley |
$39.99 $31.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
You’re saving $8 on Spy Alley in Amazon’s latest round of Black Friday board game deals. This award winning game of deception and wit pits 2-6 players against each other to hunt down the spies among them or evade capture. Amazon has a $50 previous price on this particular item, but we generally over ever see it top out at $39.99. Still, $31.99 (opens in new tab) is a solid rate.
Throw Throw Burrito |
$24.99 $12.49 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Strangely the second board game we’ve covered in this year’s sales with burritos involved, but nevertheless Throw Throw Burrito is down to $12.49 (opens in new tab) in today’s deals. That means you’re saving a full 50% on the original $24.99 MSRP and grabbing it at a price just one cent away from its record low.
Jumanji The Game |
$19.97 $15.93 at Walmart (opens in new tab)
Yes, it’s a smaller saving, but who doesn’t want their own version of Jumanji. Walmart’s Black Friday board game deals have this edition at just a hair over $15 (opens in new tab) right now – perfect whether you’re a first generation or second generation fan of the franchise.
Moose Master |
$24.99 $14.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Moose Master is $10 off in Amazon’s latest Black Friday board game deals, kicking that $24.99 MSRP down to $14.99 (opens in new tab). The family party game has only ever been at this price once before – and that was the same November sales… two years ago. You’re saving $10 here, on the perfect holiday card game.
Hasbro’s The Game of Life |
$21.99 $11 at Amazon
Family game night doesn’t have to descend into a Monopoly-fuelled fight. While The Game of Life can certainly get competitive, it’s generally a bit more of a chilled out affair that’s also well-suited to kids from the age of 6 playing along with too. In this deal you get a 50% saving, taking it down to only $11 at Amazon.
$49 $30 at Amazon
Keeping in theme with the classics, here’s a Catan deal for you (while it’s still in stock somewhere). For only $30, you can get this paragon for 3-4 players. Sometimes known as settlers of Catan, your goal is to build your community using the randomised board’s natural resources. The interesting part of this game is when your rival settlers need something from you, despite probably betraying you five minutes prior in an attempt to get their nose in front.
It’s worth noting that the 5-6 player extension is also on sale for $23.99
Ticket to Ride – San Francisco |
$24.99 $12.50 at Target
Target has a great deal on an absolute classic. Ticket to ride has, ironically, taken over the world, in loads of iterations and editions. I say ironically, because your goal in this game is to build up your trainline network to dominate the continent, city, or fantastical setting of the edition you choose. It may seem like a dry concept, but there’s a reason this chilled out game has been an established fan-favourite for years now.
In this deal you get the San Francisco version, so I’m sure there will be plenty of iconic tram building involved. As well as that, you get a $12.50 saving, bringing a game that’s typically $25 down to a very affordable $12.50.
50% off isn’t too bad for Black Friday eve.
And that’s me for the day! I’m heading out to get some rest, so will catch you again soon for the full Black Friday board game deals. There have been plenty of great offers already, so I’m anticipating many more in the coming hours. Have a great Thanksgiving if you celebrate, and see you tomorrow!
Warhammer Underworlds: Gnarlwood |
$95 $80.75 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
If you go down to the woods today… you’ll bump into some barbarians and undead skeletons, apparently. This new addition to the Underworlds series is properly excellent, and it’s currently on offer for £80.75 at Amazon (opens in new tab). That’s certainly the best price we’ve seen on it, so don’t miss out if you wanted to get into the game for less.
Meanwhile, UK readers can get it for £13 less as part of the Black Friday board game deals; Gnarlwood is available for £51.99 at Magic Madhouse (opens in new tab) instead of £65.
$39.99 $12.49 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
If you missed it before, you really need to check out this offer on Pandemic in today’s Black Friday board game deals. I’d argue that the game is a modern classic, and it features on many, many best-lists. That’s because it combines superbly tense strategy gameplay with teamwork, and the result is engrossing. More importantly, you can play it again and again – its gameplay is designed to give you a different challenge each and every time.
That’s why its current price of $12.49 at Amazon (opens in new tab) instead of $39.99 (or £18.94 at Amazon UK (opens in new tab)) is so good. We’ve never seen it cheaper, so you aren’t likely to get a better chance than this.
Battle of Osgiliath |
£125 £98.45 at Magic Madhouse (opens in new tab)
Let’s take a moment to hit a UK discount, shall we? If you’re trying to find some good offers across the pond, I’d definitely recommend keeping an eye on Magic Madhouse (opens in new tab). It’s crammed with surprisingly good offers, and a great example of that is the Battle of Osgiliath boxed set for £98.45 at Magic Madhouse (opens in new tab) instead of £125. Seeing as this is brand-new and isn’t available to order directly from Games Workshop, that’s a cracking offer.
Sadly, we’ve not seen any reductions on this product in the USA, but hopefully that’ll change soon.
$54.99 $34.64 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
While that isn’t Mysterium’s lowest ever price, it’s certainly one of the better offers we’ve seen on this excellent co-op game. Thanks to the cost now being $34.64 at Amazon (opens in new tab), you’re saving a grand total of 37% on a title that’s always a contender for best-of lists.
As for the UK, it’s currently £31.98 at Amazon (opens in new tab) rather than £39.99. Lovely stuff.
Alien: Fate of the Nostromo |
$20.99 $10.49 at Target (opens in new tab)
Following on from its already-decent discount in yesterday’s Black Friday board game deals, this Alien adaptation has actually fallen in price even more – it’s dipped by a further $4, bringing it down to just $10.49 at Target (opens in new tab). That’s plain ridiculous, and seeing as it’s a very decent co-op adventure with a lot to recommend it, you’re getting a bargain here. Just don’t wait too long, as apparently the offer will end this evening.
Want it in the UK? You can pick it up for £24.39 at Amazon (opens in new tab).
Trekking The National Parks |
$50 $36.95 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
If the weather’s a bit too rough to fully get out into nature, you can experience all your favorite national parks from the comfort of your own living room – and for $13 off the $50 MSRP. You’re getting Trekking The National Parks for just $36.95 (opens in new tab) all in. That’s $1 off the lowest price we’ve ever seen – and we haven’t seen a cheaper price in a couple of years now. Just be sure to apply that $3 coupon for the full savings.
Taco vs Burrito |
$24.99 $10.98 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Prime members can score Taco vs Burrito for just over $10 (opens in new tab) in Amazon’s Black Friday board game deals. That’s a full $14 discount on the original $24.99 MSRP. The family friendly card game is at a new record low price in these sales, just be sure to apply the additional $5 coupon for the full savings.
£24.99 £17 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Exploding Kittens |
$20 $9.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
The ever-excellent Exploding Kittens has tumbled back down to its lowest ever price in today’s Black Friday board game deals, so if you’ve ever been tempted (or just want a great, quirky game to play with your friends), now is the time. It’s $9.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab) right now or £12.99 via Amazon UK (opens in new tab), so you’re unlikely to get a better opportunity.
Color Brain |
$20 $16 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Continuing right along with our party games theme (the Holidays are just around the corner, after all), the excellent Color Brain is currently $4 less at Amazon (opens in new tab) in the Black Friday board game deals. Sitting pretty at $16, this is an easy-going team-game where you’ve got to match a color to the prompt – as an example, what color is the packaging of McDonalds fries? It’s a very gentle game for two to 20 players, so I’d suggest considering it if you’re having friends or family over.
Meanwhile, the same game is a little more generously slashed in price in Britain. You can pick it up for £16.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab) instead of nearly £25, saving you £8 in total.
What Next? |
$49.99 $34.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
I’ve got another party game for you, and it’s What Next? from Big Potato Games. This is very much like those old-school adventure books where you’d decide what the characters do, except the challenges here are creative – and often funny – mini-games that will get everyone involved. The story is also wonderfully ridiculous, so I can definitely recommend it for $34.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (or £31.99 at Amazon UK (opens in new tab) instead of £40) as part of today’s Black Friday board game deals. That’s the cheapest it’s ever been too, at least as far as I can tell, so you’re getting a double win in this instance.
Herd Mentality |
$22.99 $16 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
This is always one of my go-to games to play with family and friends who aren’t really into board gaming, especially in the Holidays. It’s straightforward but fun, and isn’t hard at all to get the hang of. That makes this offer of $16 at Amazon (opens in new tab) a bargain (that’s the cheapest we’ve ever seen it, too). Just remember, you’ll need to be a Prime member to take advantage of this.
What about UK readers, then? Well, it’s your lucky day – the Black Friday board game deals have also slashed it in cost across the pond, bringing it down to £15.83 at Amazon (opens in new tab) rather than £24.99. Lovely.
Morning everyone! It’s Benj here, ready for round two of the 2022 Black Friday board game deals and raring to go. I’ll be rounding up the most tempting offers of the day here for the long haul, so settle in and get ready – there are already some great discounts out there. Onward!
And that’s me for the day – thanks for following along as we march into the Black Friday board game deals. I’ll be back bright and early tomorrow with plenty more offers in tow, so I hope to see you then.
While I’m gone, be sure to take a look at these board games for adults, some highly-recommended board games for 2 players, and the best cooperative board games to get a better idea of what you should keep an eye on in the coming sales. As for those hoping to get a good pastime over Christmas with their folks, don’t miss these essential board games for families or the top party board games.
Catch you tomorrow!
7 Wonders Architects |
$49.99 $39.95 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
This new and family-friendly strategy game is a pretty essential pick for this Holiday season if you ask me, so getting it for 20% less in today’s Black Friday board game deals is a great opportunity to grab it. While its price tag of $39.95 at Amazon (opens in new tab) isn’t the lowest we’ve seen (it was a couple of dollars less at the beginning of Summer), that’s the cheapest it’s been since July… and considering the fact that it’s only been out a year, that’s not bad at all.
Annoyingly, Architects hasn’t gotten as big a reduction in the UK – it’s £28.04 via Magic Madhouse (opens in new tab) rather than £36. Hopefully it’ll enjoy a bigger saving when Black Friday itself arrives.
Alien: Fate of the Nostromo |
$20.99 $14.69 at Target (opens in new tab)
In space, no-one can hear you scream… about how good this offer on the Alien game is. If you want something a little more strategic that won’t make your head spin, this is a great and easy-going option I’m rather fond of. A co-op experience that puts you in control of the original movie’s crew in a battle against the xenomorph (a randomly-controlled foe that you never know where it’ll go next), this is a great addition to your collection for that price in the Black Friday board game deals.
It’s currently $14.69 at Target (opens in new tab), or $24.39 at Amazon (opens in new tab) in the UK.
£99.99 £79.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Ready your brawwwwdsword and prepare for a grand adventure, because the 2021 remake of HeroQuest – the classic RPG from the ’80s – has fallen to its lowest ever price in the UK. While the 20% reduction might not seem too noteworthy at first glance, it being £79.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab) is the cheapest we’ve ever seen this massive box of goodies. It’s absolutely one of the headliner Black Friday board game deals on this side of the pond and no mistake.
Sadly, the USA isn’t so lucky – HeroQuest is still full price over there. With any luck, that changes soon.
Betrayal at House on the Hill (3rd edition) |
$55.99 $28.79 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
The latest – and greatest, so far as I’m concerned – version of Betrayal has also crashed in price due to the Black Friday board game deals. Although it did hit a slightly lower price last week, there isn’t a huge amount in it. Plus, this offer of $28.79 at Amazon (opens in new tab) is still a great reduction considering how it averages nearly $50 most of the time.
What about the UK, then? It’s currently £33.59 at Magic Madhouse (opens in new tab) rather than £41.99, so it’s a decent saving but not quite as celebration-worthy as the US equivalent.
$39.99 $12.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
If you’ve not played Pandemic before, you really need to remedy that as soon as possible. If you ask me, this is comfortably one of the best co-op experiences on shelves right now and features as a top recommendation in many of our guides. With that in mind, getting it for a record low price of $12.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab) is a total no-brainer. Seriously, it’s never been cheaper.
UK readers don’t have to miss out either. It’s currently £20.20 at Amazon (opens in new tab) instead of almost £45, so you’re getting fantastic value for money in today’s Black Friday board game deals.
Disney Villainous |
$39.99 $20 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
We’re starting off strong with one of the best reductions we’ve seen for a while on the popular strategy game that jumpstarted a franchise. In fact, Villainous hasn’t been this cheap since November 2021 – and even then, it only cost a couple of dollars less.
That makes this discount of 50%, which brings the overall cost to $20 at Amazon (opens in new tab), a standout of the Black Friday board game deals so far. For context, Villainous averages $35-ish and very rarely goes on offer during the rest of the year.
Looking to grab it across the pond? It’s currently £24.49 at Amazon (opens in new tab) instead of almost £40, which isn’t as steep a drop but is still pretty good all things considered.
Hey folks! My name’s Benj, and I’ll be taking us through the first stint of this year’s Black Friday board game deals live and as they happen. I’m the site’s Tabletop & Merch Editor, and I’ve been covering both board gaming and Black Friday for around four years now. That gives me some inkling of what to expect and how to identify a good offer, so I’m hoping to uncover some of the best discounts floating around out there for you today. Let’s dive right in, shall we?
