Board Game Sales

Who doesn’t love finding a new board game to play? And finding it on sale is just that much better!

I’ll try to keep this page updated as often as possible, particularly during Black Friday, Amazon Prime Day, and other money-saving board game deals ran by Amazon and others. Mostly, I will only including “better”–i.e., well-reviewed–games that are at least 20% off or more of their retail price. But special exceptions may be made (e.g., if a game is at its lowest price point even if not 20% or more off).

Note: We ranked Scythe as the #1 board game for 2016.
It is a time of unrest in 1920s Europa. The ashes from the first great war still darken the snow. The capitalistic city-state known simply as ‘The Factory,’ which fueled the war with heavily armored mechs, has closed its doors, drawing the attention of several nearby countries.

Other than each player’s individual hidden objective cards, the only elements of luck are encounter cards that players will draw as they interact with the citizens of newly explored lands and combat cards that give you a temporary boost in combat. Combat is also driven by choices, not luck or randomness.

“Welcome to the world of Photosynthesis, the green strategy board game! Plant and shape the ever-changing forest as you cultivate your seeds and your strategy. Take your trees through their life-cycle, from seedling to full bloom to rebirth, and earn points as their leaves collect energy from the revolving sun’s rays. Carefully pick where you sow and when you grow, as trees in the shadows are blocked from light, and from points. This game features realistic gameplay and beautiful graphics.”

“Dominion: 2nd Edition is an improvement over the classic Dominion. Upgraded covers and cards make it more interesting and fun to play. This new version has streamlined rules and amended card text to eliminate confusion. You are a monarch, like your parents before you, a ruler of a small pleasant kingdom of rivers and evergreens. Unlike your parents, however, you have hopes and dreams. You want a bigger and more pleasant kingdom, with more rivers and a wider variety of trees. You want a Dominion. In all directions lie fiefs, freeholds, and feodum. All are small bits of land, controlled by petty lords and verging on anarchy. You will bring civilization to these people, uniting them under your banner. But wait. It must be something in the air, several other monarchs have had the exact same idea. You must race to get as much of the unclaimed land as possible, fending them off along the way. To do this you will hire minions, construct buildings, spruce up your castle, and fill the coffers of your treasury.”
