Who doesn’t love a good board game? Especially on Christmas. There’s nothing quite like cozying up to your family or friends and fighting it out on board. And, right now, you can pick up some of the best board games of all time for a short time, ahead of Black Friday. Amazon is currently offering discounts on a range of great board games, which means you can pick up Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Pandemic — and more — at a discount right now. (Not in the UK or US? Scroll down for deals in your area)
It’s possible that we may see these board games and many other discounts as part of Black Friday deals. In fact, we may see these prices drop even further in the official sale period. After all, Catan drops to $24.72 at Walmart as part of the best board game Black Friday deals in 2020, but the current discount only lowers it to $35.20 on Amazon. While Ticket to Ride has previously gone down to as low as £16 on Amazon UK, it is currently discounted to just £23.21.

What we’d recommend, then, is look for the biggest discounts on Black Friday board game deals. However, if you’re looking to secure board games for Thanksgiving—or simply don’t want to risk waiting for Black Friday—these deals are definitely not up to snuff.

Gloomhaven is one of the pricey board games out there, but it’s also one of the best, and with almost £40 off on Amazon it’s even better. We could see a further price drop for this classic game during Black Friday, but to be honest, it’s a pretty good deal.
While Amazon is offering discounts on a range of board games, we’ve selected discounts on some of the best board games around (that we believe). It’s worth noting that not all of these titles are necessarily family-friendly, but they are all worth your time and money.
Our individual top picks from the board games currently on offer are Pandemic, Catan and Ticket to Ride: the latter two that I myself picked up on sale.
