Frugal gamers will no doubt be keen to ensure that they don’t miss the best Cyber Monday board game deals this year. If that sounds like you, you should bookmark this page because we’re going to be updating it throughout November as more and more deals start to come in.
Face it: tabletop gaming ain’t a cheap hobby. Sometimes you can save cash by nabbing some free wargame rules, or using free character creators and character sheets in your Dungeons and Dragons campaign – but buying the best board games, miniatures, or trading card games can cost a bundle. That’s why Cyber Monday board games are always great deals.
Maybe your sharp competitive acumen is itching to try a new strategy board game; perhaps your collection of historical board games currently leaves a crucial era shockingly unrepresented; or it could be that you just need a simple yet sublime kids’ board game to entertain your family’s young brains – and give yours a rest. Whatever it is you’re after, this Cyber Monday could finally give you an opportunity to get it.
Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective – Carlton House & Queen’s Park
Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective – Carlton House & Queen’s Park is currently available at $40.60 USD (30% off) or £24.99 GBP from Amazon.
Space Cowboys have published a number of board games based on Sherlock Holmes. These give you the opportunity to explore Victorian England while trying to solve various mysteries. They’re cerebral games that really give you something to sink your brain’s teeth into. Technically, they make up a series, but each part works as a completely standalone experience.
As you can imagine, the Carlton House & Queen’s Park set gives you the two titular locations to explore, while also giving you ten cases to investigate. Though unique, they’ve been made in the same vein as the classic Sherlock Holmes adventures, and if you’re a fan of the books, chances are you’ll be a fan of this game.
Azul: Queen’s Garden
Azul: Queen’s Garden is currently available at $29.49 USD (a 34% discount) on Amazon. (Unfortunately, this deal is not available in the UK).
Azul is one of the most iconic tile games of all-time, so it’s no surprise that it has received follow ups. Azul: Queen’s Garden is the fourth game in the series and the story behind it is that you are designing a beautiful garden for a queen.
You don’t need to have played any of the other Azul games to be able to understand or appreciate it, so whether you’re a die-hard Azul fan, or somebody with a fondness for accessible tile games that have a focus on creating something beautiful, this is something you may want to add to your collection.
Arkham Horror is currently available at $58.99 USD (26% off) on Amazon.
This popular board game was inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft and sees you and up to five other players taking control of investigators as you roam the darkened streets of Arkham, working to combat the mysterious alien Ancient Ones.
It’s a game that has countless different scenarios for you to tackle, and a selection of investigators to play as, all of whom have their own backstories and abilities. This all helps to make each game feel distinctive. It’s a game that’s worthy of a spot on the shelf of any gaming connoisseur.
