Sale of table games on Amazon’s deal of the day

Amazon touted today’s deal of the day as its “epic daily deal,” and the shoe certainly fits when it includes one of the most epic RPG-in-a-box titles of all time. Gloomhaven is currently on sale, matching its all-time low of $ 85 just for today. This cuts its usual MSRP of $ 140 by 40%. If you’ve ever thought about playing Dungeons and Dragons but I have never been able to convince one of your friends to buckle down and work as a gamemaster, Gloomhaven could be the perfect solution for you and up to three friends.


Perhaps the closest to playing a paper-based video game, Gloomhaven is an expansive board game filled with detailed miniatures, evocative art, and a quick narrative. As players progress through the story, they will open sealed boxes and change the board, creating a truly unique game for the group playing there.

The cardboard game offerings don’t stop there, with many lighter and easily accessible titles on sale as well. If you like simple games that use cards and dice and can be learned and played in under an hour, consider Dragon wood for only $ 10. Are you a mystery murder fan? You can choose between two Case closed ThinkFun games to solve, A story to die for, and A pinch of murder – each only $ 10. Do you prefer something totally unique? Grow trees in the beautifully designed game of Photosynthesis for $ 23. Want to play co-op with your friends and family in a fantastic elemental exploration and survival game? Gamewright Forbidden island and Forbidden desert are amazing introductions for getting new players into designer board games, and they cost just $ 14 and $ 17, respectively.

If some of these titles are relatively unfamiliar to you, this one may not need to be introduced. Catania helped create the era of modern table and board games we live in today. It has been an institution in the gaming world since its release in 1995 and has maintained its popularity and influence over the years. There are plenty of expansions and spin-offs out there, as well as a myriad of games based on them. The base game of Catania is currently on sale on Amazon for just $ 30, while the 25th anniversary edition is $ 52 and some additional extensions range from $ 16 to $ 30.

Catania board game

The iconic classic of the board game where players compete strategically and trade for resources.

Catania 25th Anniversary Edition

The gateway drug for board game fans around the world has turned 25 years old. This hexagonal board game comes in a bigger, sturdier box with new art, premium wooden game pieces, and collectible edition dice.

There are so many great games to choose from, with enough variety in genres that should satisfy fans of classic and modern board games. Here are some other top titles we recommend:

Risk: Inheritance

The Legacy game that started it all, Risk: Legacy launched a whole new take on board games. The outcome of each game changes the way each subsequent game is played. The rules will change, the maps will be destroyed, the territories will be erased from the map according to the course of each game, making each Risk: Legacy board a unique characteristic of the group that played it.

Air, Land and Sea

A game that distills 18-card WWII grand scale, Air, Land and Sea is a fast-paced card game that rewards clever bluffs and cunning, imbued with the flavor of the Axis against the Allies.

Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game

Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game is about as close as it gets to performing the interesting parts of police work without the need for a badge or gun. Playable alone or with up to 5 players, Detective is a game that rewards careful deduction as you race against time to follow the right leads to solve the case. All of this is done using a colorful companion app that really helps sell the experience.
